CNN's Cuomo: Avoids mentioning bombers' names
Friday - 5/10/2013, 5:50pm  ET
NEW YORK (AP) -- Tamerlan (TAM'-ehr-luhn)and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) are two names that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo says he avoids saying on the air.
Cuomo, the anchor for much of CNN's daytime coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing, said Friday he purposely avoids using the names of the two suspects to avoid giving them more attention. He said he isn't trying to hide news, since he knows others in the media have used the names often.
He also said he's not much interested in stories about why the older brother hated the United States.
Cuomo said he looks for something positive in the tragic story, including why relatively few people died in the bombing.
