CNN John King was first to announce the arrest in the Boston Marathon bombing case. He even had a description of the suspect “dark skinned individual”. It had to feel great to scoop the competition, but the problem was he was wrong. The police say there is no arrest. You win some, you lose some. No, this is sloppy journalism and in this age of social media and instant gratification it is happening far too often.
