    CNN's John King admitted, Tuesday, that the network’s shoddy reporting on the Boston Marathon bombing was both “embarrassing” and “a double kick in the head” because he’s a Boston native. During an interview with a D.C.-based radio station about CNN’s mistakes, King said, ”I’ve been at this for nearly 30 years, gentlemen. I’ve covered a couple of wars and a lot of breaking news and a lot of cops-and-robbers situations. I’ve got a pretty good track record, but when you do something like this, it’s embarrassing.”
