    What's sort of sad is that had an anchor simply read those paragraphs, a member of his or her audience would be decently well-informed.  Granted, the MSM has done yeoman's work in getting every little bit of information, pseudo-information, and perhaps fabrication out, but have they summarized the facts as known and shared the "known unknowns"?  

    I should not be going to a democratic-left site to get this information -- that's what CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC's news departments are for.  (MSNBC is for repeating the Democratic party line, Fox is an organ of the GOP.)

      Since they don't do speculation as to causes, they simply reported the facts as they came in, but also talked to folks familiar with Boston and the Marathon which was helpful for folks like me 3000 miles away. Great job.
