A one sided shootout in Watertown

Media accounts now say the 19-year-old bomber suspect found hiding in a boat was unarmed.

Seems the cops' tales of an hour long Friday evening shootout, and of finding an arsenal onboard were, uh, exaggerated.

All that gun fire ringing out Friday evening was apparently exclusively from police.

The Daily Mail runs through some of the early police and media inaccuracies and exaggerations. Including the apparent fabrication in the New York Times that an M-4 assault rifle was recovered from the boat.
