  • There is always someone out there who wants attention. The media thinks they are providing a service giving it to them (and making money for themselves at the same time). If they would stop some of this nonsense reporting maybe crazy extremists wouldn't seek their 15 minutes of fame and stop some of this bad behavior.

  • The media plays to their audience. I suspect not as much would be printed if people quit reading a reacting to it.

  • The 9/11 Truthers are already jumping on the bandwagon, going with the whole "Boston got what it deserved" line, calling it an inside job, the surveillance is photoshopped, etc etc

  • They have to have things to talk about 24/7 to keep their ratings up

  • The Truthers should go talk to the guy that got both legs blown off, he did identify him!
