Live blog: Covering the Boston Marathon bombings in real-time
The Boston Marathon bombings and Watertown manhunt challenged real-time reporting and the people who produce live coverage. Between the trauma, mixed reports, faulty tweets, photos rushed to publication and people rushing to find loved ones – how did they discern what's right? And how did they make that decision when mere seconds separated them from their competition? This week's chat brings Boston.com's Adrienne Lavidor-Berman, WCVB's Neil Ungerleider and the Toronto Star's Lesley Ciarula Taylor together to discuss how they covered the tragedy in real-time – what they'd do again, what they'd change and what they learned.
