Boston Marathon Bombing: One Year Later #tbt

It was one year ago, on April 15, 2013, when Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev detonated two bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 260. A large crowd gathered at the Boylston Street finish line for a moment of silence Tuesday to mark the first anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack in the US since 9/11.

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing, questions quickly emerged about the media’s coverage of the event and the influence of social media. The Los Angeles Times hopped on Spreecast in the heat of the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and tackled these questions head on.

Robin Abcarian, a columnist for the L.A. Times, discusses all of the inaccurate media coverage of the Boston bombing, how the press is handling the story and the role that social media is playing in the following clip:
