Did “left-wing media” trigger the Times Square Bomber?
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, as they say. If it is legitimate for the MSM to speculate on whether conservative talk radio and Fox News could inflame an unstable right-wing “nut case” into a violent act, then the opposite question can be posed as well. Was would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad “radicalized” by the incessant drumbeat of hatred toward George W. Bush by CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC and left-wing talk radio for the years during which Shahzad was a US resident?
In 2004, Shahzad bought a house through real estate agent Igor Djuric. Asked about Shahzad, Djuric recently told a New York CBS affiliate, “He didn't like the war and he didn't like the president (Bush)." Djuric went on to say, "I'm a stranger and just met him and he mentioned that. Normally we don't go like that and tell strangers our feelings like that." Apparently, Shahzad had developed some strong emotional opinions, hateful enough to attempt the slaughter of hundreds of innocent Americans. Did the virulent hatred eschewed by leftist MSM commentators push him into becoming a radical Islamic terrorist?
Obviously, there is no proof of this. On the other hand, has the lack of proof prevented President Obama and former President Clinton from decrying the potential for conservative commentators to incite violence? If, as Clinton recently stated, he believes the "right-wing media" and blogosphere could be culpable for any future politically-fueled extremism, then he must now admit that the “left-wing media” and blogosphere could be culpable for Faisal Shahzad.
