12 ridiculous cases of media bias after Boston bombing

Now that the Boston Marathon bombing suspects appear to be anti-American jihadists of Chechen ancestry, Independent Journal Review’s Kyle Becker put together a compilation of the week’s wild speculation of possible bombing suspects.

In a list that screams “media bias,” Becker’s 12 most ridiculous examples:

1. Hollywood Director Michael Moore

Shortly after the bombing, Moore tweeted “2+2.” And then replied to himself “Tax Day. Patriots Day.”

2. Salon’s David Sirota

Headline: “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white guy.”

3. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

“It is a state holiday in Massachusetts today called Patriots’ Day and, uh, who knows if that had anything at all to do with these explosions.”

4. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell

[Because it opposes tracing chemicals in gunpowder] the NRA is “in the business of helping bombers get away with their crimes.”

5. CNN Analyst Peter Bergen

“I’m reminded of Oklahoma City, which was a bombing, which was initially treated as a gas explosion. First reports are often erroneous… We’ve also seen, for instance, right-wing groups trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon in 2010.”

6. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

“Let me ask you about domestic terrorism as a category. Normally, domestic terrorists, people tend to be on the far right, well that’s not a good category, just extremists, let’s call them that.”
