More Than 2.4 Million People Followed Boston Manhunt on Ustream

265,000-plus tuned in at time of capture

Aside from NBC’s Pete Williams and local Boston news station WCVB, TV news outlets infamously fumbled in reporting the manhunt following last week’s Boston Marathon bombing. That led a lot of people to sidestep the news middlemen and tune into police scanners feeds streaming online, such as through livestreaming video platform Ustream.
