Haslet-Davis says she requested that the names of the alleged bombers not be mentioned during the segment, but according to her tweets, a name was mentioned anyway and she became upset:!/AdrianneHaslet/status/454672072732844032

According to an NBC News statement via the Boston Herald, Haslet-Davis “requested that the alleged bombers’ names not be used in the entire program, but given the nature of the discussion we couldn’t make that guarantee.”
