    Fox doing extensive converage live while CNN and MSNBC ignoring it instead breathlessly covering two different anti Trump stories...interesting

    Still not sure what happened. Reports that no smoke was seen. Still injuries and fatalities. I was just in London a week ago, this happened in Manchester, waiting for more details.

    CNN has the breaking story on their web site but no live on camera coverage.

    It's not "interesting" - they're getting on it and, believe me, there is some serious cursing and screaming coming from their news director right now.

    And Fox news is now reporting that the nature of the "explosion" is yet to be confirmed and are discussing the possibility that there was some technical issue with an ensuing panic.

    Best to wait and see.

    It's interesting, though, that the incident of a couple months ago outside Parliament basically vanished from the news cycle.

    SkyNews witness said she smelled something burning

    BBC said they are treating it like an act of terrorism but not saying it is terrorism

    apparently there was a heightened level of alert in London and across Europe the past week...palpable according to Shepard Smith

    They're deploying the terror protocols, which only makes sense for any MCI.

    It sounds almost as if there was a transformer explosion or something, somewhere in the building and a panic ensued.

    witness outside said they heard explosion.....loud...and now they are possibly focusing on explosion not in arena but near ticket office on foyer

    Doesn't fit their narrative of only providing 92% negative Trump coverage.

    Lot of speculation out there right now. Was it confirmed it was a bomb? Some sources seem to be saying fatalities occurred in the panic. Awful situation.

    CNN only covering it because it got to the point they HAD to.

    They held out and continued with negative Trump coverage as long as possible before they really had no choice.

    They were last to provide coverage, and just can't wait to get back to regularly scheduled negative Trump coverage.

    I'm sure the victims, parents, and families appreciate those turning this tragedy into a debate over network agendas. Very Classy.

    just pointing out that they continued with Trump coverage for 15 minutes...both CNN and MSNBC and neither of their Trump discussion was any kind of boom breaking news

    Reported whatever it was it happened between Victoria Station and the Arena which are connected and would not have strong security.

    CNN reporting from what they're being told by officials it may have been a suicide bomber.

    Now being reported as a suicide bomber outside of the arena. These terrorist are getting smarter. Don't have to worry about being searched after the concert.
