All three cable news networks were quick to report today's news that Dzokhar Tsarnaev, the 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction.
CNN, MSNBC and Fox News quickly aired the report and began to pore through the federal filing.
Tsarnaev has been charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction in the bombings, which killed three and injured 176. In a statement, the Justice Department says if convicted, Tsarnaev faces a range of sentences -- from the death penalty to life in prison or a term in prison for any number of years.
