Boston marathon bombing: In the race to ID the suspects in the Boston Marathon 2013 bombing, news media outlets published a series of inaccurate reports in a pathetic effort to out-scoop each other.

In covering the Boston Marathon bombing, CNN was first to the bottom. John King wrongly reported that investigators sought a "dark-skinned male."

The New York Post ran a photo of two brown-skinned spectators on its front page with the accompanying text "BAG MEN" "Feds seek these two pictured at Boston Marathon." When the Post realized the two men were innocent, editor Col Allan said in a statement: "We stand by our story. The image was emailed to law enforcement agencies yesterday afternoon."

The AP, Boston Globe and other media have also retracted inaccurate and anonymously sourced reports.
