Yeah, that would never happen...
Don't be so positive about it. When the younger brother was hiding in the boat I watched a bit of BBC and then CNN (didn't see when the whole thing
ended). On BBC there was a female reporter in the studio and a guy on the street. When the police threw flashbangs,the guy reported them as gunshots
and then the woman asked him if they could possibly be stun grenades and he agreed and explained that the sound matches. He pretty much retracted his
report about gunshots.
On CNN,there was a grey-haired reporter and 2-3 "guests",all of them on the street. The reporter was always like "Let's not say this,we're not
sure about that.".
Other than that,let's not forget that at the time of the explosions the backpacks weren't such an important thing since there were already:
1) Two explosions
2) Several wounded. I'm not even adding the dead people and an eight year old child among them because they couldn't know these things right
3) Heroes with central figure a hat-wearing hero who jumped in trying to help as best as he could.
4) Gore and blood.
With all those things already "available" not even the most greedy of reporters would care about the backpacks. If you were a greedy
reporter,looking to get a good story,would you care about the blood and gore or about the backpacks? Why would they be hasty about them with the
possible result of making a mistake? They had already so many things,much more important and "eye-catching".
For the record,I'm not calling those reporters greedy. I'm bringing an example to point out that the pictures of the backpacks aren't even worthy
to wipe your butt with in comparison with what was happening there at the time.
