Marathon Bombing: Time For MSM ‘Where’s Right Wing Waldo?’ Again

chris_matthews1Every time Americans suffer another atrocious act of terroristic violence the national media go into their Where’s-Right-Wing-Waldo meme.

Chris Matthews has made it his career new normal to be wrong about this.

They did it with Jared Lee Loughner in Phoenix, James Holmes in Aurora, and Christopher Dorner (a Hillary Clinton/Tavis Smiley fan) in So. California.

They haven’t hit the lotto so far; even at Ruby Ridge, right-wing wacko Randy Weaver turned out to be the victim of left-wing wacko Janet Reno.

If they’re ever right, Soledad O’Brien will have an on-air orgasm… Wait! Where is Soledad O’Brien? Anyone…? Soledaaaaad?

So we should have expected no less from the MSM with this week’s Boston Marathon Bombing.

Big Journalism:

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. [More]

Humph!!! Show me a Tea Party extremist who doesn’t know that pressure cooker bombs are so last year!

Okay, anyone could have made and planted the bombs that wreaked havoc in Boston this week. We are not above believing that evil exists in our society among people of all political stripes.

Sure, people who have claimed to be conservative have committed atrocious acts; Timothy McVeigh comes to mind. But McVeigh was an agnostic anarchist, not a conservative. No act of mass violence in this country has ever been perpetrated by a social conservative… because it would not be, well, conservative.

Turns out, as I write, the FBI has announced a suspect in the Boston attacks.

Don’t tell me. Rush Limbaugh fan in a suicide vest, right?
