Maybe it’s because the media elites don’t want to be Charlie Hebdo’d and consider their safety more important than reporting on what the modus operandi suggested and, heaven forbid, look at the Boston Marathon bombing as a Muslim terror attack.
Nah, it had to be a right wing, white guy….
And whenever possible, it will be.
Seriously, the media culture is truly afraid of being targeted themselves which is why they have to be pulled, kicking and screaming, to state what may be the obvious. We’ve been told after previous incidents, Muslim terrorists liked to detonate one device that would drive panicked people towards another device that would be detonated to increase the carnage. That kinda’ made the possible perpetrators of the Boston Marathon bombing an easy speculation.
Of course, the Council on American-Islamic Relations and their left always declines to jump to conclusions that would lead to a nationwide backlash against Muslims; a backlash that very seldom happens.

But who ever said the media could count if they wanted to?
