The Next Time Someone Tells You That NPR Is An Unbiased Source....

On NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’ yesterday, Counterterrorism Correspondent Dina Temple Raston concludes that the Boston Marathon tragedy was more than likely “a domestic extremist attack” citing April as a “big month for anti-government, right-wing individuals.”

In her segment, she notes that Hitler’s birthday and the anniversaries of the Columbine attack, the Oklahoma City bombing and the assault on the Branch-Davidian compound in Waco, TX all fall in April.  link
I'll bet she's one of those sickos who's just devastated that, yet again, it was Muslims who carried out this attack. After finding out she was wrong, I'll bet she immediately jumped on the "hope there's not a backlash against Muslims" bandwagon.

She must really hate Americans, to think that way.

By the way, are you hearing any stories about massive waves of backlash against Muslims in this country?  Me, either.

I've never heard anyone claim NPR is an unbiased source. In fact, news delivery has never been unbiased.

I wonder if she will remember that Earth Day is also Lenin's birthday and draw some conclusions on the founding of that?

Ok, I stopped snickering, you can stop too.

Darren,
It's striking the number of "journalists" who were rooting for the legendary "right wing extremist" in the incident. How disappointed they must be.

Law and Order Teacher, I think Chris Matthews and Piers Morgan are still on suicide watch!

No one says NPR is an unbiased source.

In fairness though ... Occurring in Boston, on tax day? It was not an unreasonable GUESS ... but hardly, "more than likely". I know I guessed correctly ...
