[Media Euphemisms] So, 11-year-old Bridger Hunt is struggling after major surgery last week for injuries he suffered after a 46-year-old moron set off a pipe bomb in a driveway. Bridger was hit by flying shrapnel. Surgeons likened his massive injuries to those of an IED explosion in Iraq.
But for some reason, Salt Lake mainstream media keeps referring to this bomb as a "firework."
The pyromaniac who set off the thing is deeply sorry. He says he only meant to make a firework. Except he didn't. He made a bomb. (Holly Mullen)
