Responding to erroneous CNN and CBS reports today that a suspect was arrested in the Boston Marathon bombing, the “Parks and Recreation” actress took to Twitter and put the journos on blast:
It’s official: the news hates facts but they LOVE breaking stories.

Jones is the daughter of Quincy Jones and actress Peggy Lipton.
Indeed, the media backlash on the Twittersphere and across the web has been thick, especially towards CNN. #CNN became a trending Twitter hashtag alongside laughable fake stories and quips, including this one:
If #CNN backpedaled any faster about the arrest that wasn’t, they might spin the earth in the opposite direction.

You can catch Rashida this summer opposite Nick Frost and Chris O’Dowd in the upcoming dance comedy, “Cuban Fury.”
