Glenn Beck's web site (The Blaze) got it wrong saying a Saudi national student was "absolutely involved." He called him a "dirt bag, possibly the ringleader."

Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed he previously was "involved with a terrorist or terror activity."

Media Matters said "too many players opted to just make stuff up. Prompting witch hunts, they cast innocents as would-be killers and then couldn't be bothered with apologies."

Murdoch's New York Post "seemed committed to getting as many stories wrong about the Boston attack as possible."

Before an arrest was made, CNN's breaking news headlined "Sources: Arrest made in bombings case." Reporter John King erroneously called him "dark-skinned."

NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous responded, saying:

"Our concern is that CNN used an overly broad, unhelpful and potentially racially inflammatory categorization to describe the potential suspect. History teaches us that too often people of color are unfairly targeted in the aftermath of acts of terrorism."

Post-Boston bombings, media misreporting was deplorable. It didn't surprise. "Rush to misjudgment" is commonplace. Washington Post editors headlined "In pursuit of terrorists."
