First off, hats off to ALL law enforcement agencies who worked tirelessly today to find the second suspect. I have an amazing amount of respect for their job and the risks they take to keep us safe.
All day I’ve kept my mouth shut as I watched people comment on the coverage…dropping hints of political affiliation or slanted coverage.
But now I feel like I have to say it. Because I AM SICK of negativity and people making EVERYTHING political. Four people died this week because of the bombings. Journalists worked tirelessly to get the facts. Today alone, people worked 24-30 hour days to bring wall-to-wall coverage. In some cases they were the reporting the ONLY information residents had access to as they were on lockdown. It’s a tough job and an amazing responsibility. Bringing facts without giving away too many details that could hurt the investigation or make the situation worse.
So PLEASE stop making this tragic situation political. Stop saying the media is slanted in their coverage. Because this week…political affiliations and agendas aside…what happened in our national news was hard on EVERYONE…And I can guarantee those in the field were not thinking about politics or slants. It makes me sick…we should pray for ALL those involved including ALL of the media outlets that you probably tuned in to watch.
