Coverage Of Somber Boston Marathon Tribute Marred By Photog's "Fuck!"

CNN, which can't seem to get anything right these days, ruined another bit of coverage today when what appeared to be a moment of silence during Boston's marathon bombing memorial tribute today was interrupted by what sounds like a cursing cameraman.

It's only marginally CNN's fault, of course; yes, they were slow on silencing whatever mic channel that was, but this is mostly the fault of the jackass blabbering during what was supposed to be a moment of quiet contemplation amidst bagpipes. But still, yikes.

Update (3:30 p.m.): We've confirmed this audio also went out on several Boston TV stations. At least one of them even put it into their closed captioning, albeit without "fuck." You're a bit off the hook, CNN, though if you're going to cede control of your national feed to a local broadcaster, ride the levels more closely.
