The Wrong Kind of Terrorist
It’s interesting that this AP article by Sarah Brumfield withholds until the last quarter the information that James Lee actually wanted more extreme environmentalist programming on the Discovery Channel:
A man who railed against the Discovery Channel’s environmental programming for years burst into the company’s headquarters with at least one explosive device strapped to his body yesterday and took three people hostage at gunpoint before police shot him to death, officials said.
To be fair, other versions of the article informs readers, right up front that Lee’s complaint was against programming that arguably encourage population growth. But it does seem that the mainstream media, generally, doesn’t find environmental terrorism quite as interesting as anything that might serve to paint the Tea Party as bigoted lunatics.
