Over in the US, President Obama has waded into the debate surrounding CNN's craptacular coverage of the Boston bombing and subsequent manhunt. Speaking at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, Obama joked:
"I know CNN has taken some knocks lately, but I admire their commitment to cover all sides of the story just in case one of them happens to be accurate."
Our very own Piers Morgan (though America, you're very welcome to keep him) was also singled out by comedian and US talk show host Conan O'Brien speaking at the dinner. O'Brien questioned CNN's judgement in replacing "the popular Larry King with one of the scheming footmen from Downton Abbey".
