I agree mostly with chilhowee. LetsRun contributed nothing and caused a lot of damage. Think about the poor Brown student and what you did to him. Then there was the poor high school student of Arabic descent that you guys went after. (I can't believe that you guys didn't see the backpack in the photo. He didn't leave it anywhere. It was merely transferred to the buddy's back. His buddy was bringing him his running gear. Open your eyes next time.) I'm not suggesting that social media isn't important. I think it can be very useful in a situation like this. I'd say keep doing what you're doing but just cool it a little next time. Don't jump to conclusions. And if you've got something good, don't post it here. Give it to the FBI. And if you see something here that you didn't get from law enforcement, ignore it. I mean ALMOST EVERYTHING THAT WAS POSTED HERE LAST WEEK WAS WRONG.
Scoops? "Breaking stuff?" The only "scoop" I've seen recently were photos of your Polish hotel room. You could've reported your impressions after the explosions. You were there. I thought you guys might rise to occassion but you only posted photos of victims and linked to other news sources.
As for the message boards, it's obvious they could be so much better and less puerile, adolescent, racist, sexist, etc, etc, etc. But that would be too much work, so you offer up the same false rationale for stasis that the NRA does. "Should we limit all freedoms?" what a joke. How about you guys start behaving like responsible adults and clean up your cesspool.
