    CNN was criticized for its coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings. On Wednesday, it was one of at least four major news organizations that cited anonymous sources when reporting an arrest had been made. The Associated Press, Fox News and the Boston Globe also disseminated the inaccurate news.

    This was the right answer.

    CLOSE-CAPTIONING FAIL

    We've all seen typographical errors when close-captioning is on the TV, they rarely get every word correctly. Sometimes they're obviously not familiar with the word being said and it's clear by the way it's spelled in the CC's.

    However, just because you're unfamiliar with the name "Dzokhar Tsarnaev", that doesn't mean you can just substitute: "Zooey Deschanel."

    Zooey Deschanel Receives Formal Apology After Being Named Suspect In Boston Marathon Bombing: LAist

    Accompanying a photo of accused suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev read the text, "Marathon Bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel." Broadcast on Dallas-Fort Worth Fox network affiliate KDFW, the April 19 flub was made not by the station, but rather by a rogue employee of Kansas-based Caption Solutions, a TV captioning service.

    For his part, the uncle said that Cambridge, Mass., was Tsarnaev’s home, not the southern Russian republics of his roots.


    “He lived in America, he grew up here,” Tsarni said. “Any contemplations that his body should be taken to his home country, they cannot believe. His home country was indeed Cambridge, Massachusetts.”


    Stefan said he is planning to ask the city of Cambridge to provide a burial plot, and if Cambridge turns him down, he will seek help from state officials.

    A small number of demonstrators had protested at the funeral home over the weekend, holding signs and chanting "USA!" One sign read: "Do not bury him on U.S. soil."


    According to The Associated Press, several people drove by the funeral home Sunday and yelled, including one man who shouted, "Throw him off a boat like Osama bin Laden!"

    Sad. Should bury him but maybe under a false name or somehow obscure who it is. You don't want people going to damage his stone or dig up the body. You just want him to go into obscurity. Tell his family but that's it.

    ​I think undisclosed location was a good choice. Even infamy would give him that moment in the spotlight that might inspire others, so let him be forgotten.

    Agreed. I think it was the guy in VT who offered a plot in honor of his mother who taught him to "love thine enemy".

    If so, it wouldn't be impossible info to dig up, pun maybe intended.
