It turns out the bombs bursting in air over Washington for PBS' presentation of "A Capitol Fourth" were, at least in part, reruns.

The public broadcasting service said Tuesday that it should have informed viewers that footage from previous years' fireworks displays were used on its ostensibly live program.

On a cloudy, misty night in Washington where it was hard to fully see the display, the Capital Concerts production company cut in with some fireworks from a clear night.

Viewers quickly noticed the difference and took to social media to criticize PBS.
