Anybody else see the Fox News banner headline today that said massive casualties at the marathon? This was the banner headline for their web page. I am VERY disappointed in them for jumping the gun and reporting that false information. I will still continue to watch The Factor, but I am pretty upset with their choice of headlines. It really created unnecessary stress and worrying. Totally irresponsible. Shame on you, Fox.


Lost a lot of credibility in my book.

???? What is false about it? You don't consider 3 dead and 144 injured to be massive casualties? I certainly do.

Is their reporting of it REALLY the issue here???

There was a guy on fox this AM saying how the country should just move on but the left will try to make some kind of big deal about this.
They have as many or more fools working for them as any of the others.

As I understand it, "casualties" = injuries. Now, if they had reported massive "fatalities" I would agree with you.

AGREED...this is NOT a political talking point. If you are a GOD fearing person then pray for all those affected, pray for all of us.

Had 2 relatives up there finish within 5-10 mins of the bombs. I thought casualties meant fatalities. I was not making this a political issue. They also reported 13 dead, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 3.

This is just one more sign that our world is becoming an even more hateful place.

I hope we come together as Americans more becuse of this and the parties won't use it to further their own causes. ----I can dream, can't I?

If you want to hear a bad response from a politician, look up what Barney Frank had to say about this tradgedy.

Look what Shelia Jackson Lee had to say. Look what Steny Hoyer had to say. Look what Chris Matthews had to say.

Hoyer and Lee trying to tie the sequester to the bombing and Matthews convinces that the right is to blame.

People should keep their mouth shut online after a tragedy. No facebook post, tweet or HPA post is going to make sense of senselessness. Everyone tries to find an angle to play it. Let it be and send a prayer.

People have been asked, but I guess some just can't help themselves. It is a tragedy. The bombs that cost these victims and their families didn't have a political affiliation. The tears that the family and friends who lost so much don't have a political affiliation. There were posts on here less than a half hour after this occured that began to politicize this tragedy. Shame on them. Totally classless!!!
