Why Islamic Terrorists Would Target a Jewish Center: An Ongoing Mystery to Our Journalistic Betters
Over at The Jury Talks Back, aunursa says that CNN can’t figure out why the terrorists attacked a Jewish center.
It’s not terribly surprising that they’re surprised. I’ll never forget how, after a Muslim terrorist shot up a Jewish Center in Seattle, the L.A. Times ran a box on the front page saying that the gunman’s motive was a “mystery”:
The story contained clues, such as the fact that the gunman targeted the Jewish Center after conducting a “cursory Internet search for Jewish organizations.” Or the witness who said the man had screamed “I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel!” before opening fire.
I swear I am not making up those facts, or the fact that the L.A. Times declared the gunman’s motives a “mystery” in the face of that evidence.
I guess these media types just keep getting mystified.
