I’m so sick of the media. Here’s the latest example of what passes for reporting these days.
An article published on CNN’s website makes an unproven claim that pressure cooker bombs like the ones used at the Boston Marathon terror attack are a “signature” of “right-wing extremists.”
The article says (emphasis added) :
A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.
This specific claim that “pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States” appears to be completely unsubstantiated. Not a single example is given even in the CNN story itself of anyone other than al-Quadea using a pressure cooker bomb.
Read the whole thing. Unfortunately, CNN isn’t the only culprit here. Check out the latest from Tony Katz at TownHall on how the left is constantly trying to tie every horrible event to conservatives.
