In the wake of yesterday's tragedy at the Boston marathon, the most popular searches are for the major news sources in the following order: CNN, MSNBC and ABC News, all with 200,000+ searches. New York Times and Ny Times each have more than 100,000+, so collectively, that publication also tops 200,000. At this point, cultural topics appear with a sports story (Elena Delle Donne), picking up with Yahoo News, then Pray for Boston, and BBC. Interestingly, CBS News and FOX News do not appear among top search terms. At this point, no one has claimed responsibility for the bombings, and published reports have not suspeculated with regard to who planted the devices.
