CNN under fire for alarmist reporting of Nairobi blasts

The Kenyan online community reacted with harsh criticism to CNN’s reports of the grenade blasts in Nairobi. The news network reported on the story with footage from 2007-08 and gave the impression that violence had erupted all over the country. Grenade attacks by suspected al-Shabab operatives killed six people at a bus terminal in Nairobi.

On twitter most of the criticism came under the tags #SomoneTellCNN and #CNNApologise.

Here is a screen shot of part of the segment.
