More jumping

Yesterday I criticized Fox for jumping to conclusions. I was right; they had to back away and admit that they were completely wrong.

Today, CNN and NBC (and Fox again) also read too much into something and proclaimed that a suspect was in custody when in fact the only real news was that a video had been found that showed someone who might be the bomber. More jumping to conclusions, but at least this time it wasn’t a “He’s Muslim so he must be guilty” situation.

I feel like yelling “everyone remain calm and remember Richard Jewell!”
