There was chaos on live TV.
At 1:45 pm, CNN's John King first reported the headline all America is waiting for.
King said, "This is a Boston law enforcement source who tells me that an arrest has been made."
Then at 1:51, ABC's Brian Ross reported the breaking news.
Ross reported, "Our ABC News affiliate here is reporting that an arrest has been made."
At 1:56, we heard from Fox News when Megyn Kelly reported, "Indeed, an arrest has been made."
Just two minutes later, at 1:58, both NBC and CBS broke into regular network programming, but NBC's Pete Williams said his sources told him: hold your horses.
"To say an arrest is imminent, or has been made, seems to me, at this point, to be wrong," said Williams.
And CBS's Bob Orr took a more cautious road, reporting, "The sources are very encouraged by these developments. Very encouraged that perhaps they're onto a very good lead."
The Associated Press also said someone was in custody, leading to this headline on the New York Magazine website: "Total Chaos."
Then, CNN backed off, with John King reporting, "This federal law enforcement source that I just communicated with says, 'Significant progress has been made, but no arrest. Anyone who says an arrest is ahead of themselves."
Understandable confusion playing out on live TV.
