Like probably a lot of you, I’ve been horrified and saddened by the round of bombings that occurred today at the Boston Marathon.
I’ve struggled with how we’d cover it at Disinfo, and have reached the conclusion that perhaps letting the story evolve before launching into an analysis of the event is the best thing we can do. I only wish that the mainstream media had reached the same decision.
For now, I strongly recommend monitoring social media for citizen’s eye reportage of the event (Twitter) as well as whatever media organizations you trust – if any. Additionally, Reddit.com is a great source for evolving news regarding the event.
