Did you think I was trying to tout the Associated Press as infallible? Good Lord.

(this is not directed at any post in here, but a general question about this event)


I forget the Latin term, is it - cui bono

Who benefits?

did you think I was trying to say news outlets were not reporting it?

I was saying I did not trust the story, :"A senior U.S. intelligence official says "

that is why I ask you if you saw (on TV) this person say it

it sounded too much like that bitch Judith Miller and the NY Times lying their way into the Iraq War

Never fails. A tragedy happens and deep unleashes his crankiness.

A friend of mine lives in Boston. She's fine but I hope the reporter from her radio station is too.

NBC News says the bombs were homemade.

Sad day.

not wanting wrong or fake stories is being cranky?

I would like to get to the bottom of this ASAP and get the people responsible in custody and punished

Considering it's almost impossible for any of us to substantiate any claim made in any news story, there's not much you can do to avoid it. Misinformation is a part of high profile news situations these days, everyone wants to report things first.

very true, that is why I have learned to look at everything (a bit) skeptically, especially at first,
and only bother to speak up, if something sounds too sketchy or out right fraudulent.

Security beefed up at LAX, Dodger Stadium after Boston Marathon blasts

Los Angeles Times | April 15, 2013 | 2:05 PM
Law enforcement authorities in Southern California are beefing up security in the wake of today's explosions at the Boston Marathon.

At Los Angeles International Airport, officials are increasing checkpoints at entrances and where crowds gather. More bomb-sniffing dogs will be on patrol inside and outside the airport.

The Los Angeles Police Department is increasing security at Dodger games. Orange County officials also plan more patrols at sporting and entertainment events.

my impression is this is a home grown group

truth is there is nothing they (we) can do to stop this

things I no longer care about, privacy in public places,

I would like there to be video cameras just about every where. there could be plenty of video of who ever planted these bombs if we stopped bitching about privacy. also, muggers and rapists could get apprehended and wrongly accused people could prove their whereabouts for alibis.

This. The only other option is for nobody to talk about it for a couple days, which is unreasonable.

This is the week of April 19th (Waco, OKC Bombing).
And Tax Day.

Methinks this is homegrown.

Fucking crazy ass people.
