Let's hope that the mainstream media tries to get to the bottom of it in the same way it jumps to conclusions in most of the other shootings that take place.
"There has been a shooting at the Washington, D.C. offices of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian organization run by Tony Perkins.
The FRC put out a short note on its web site after a security guard there was shot; early reports are that the guard is OK and that the shooter has been arrested.
Fox News reported that the shooter made comments opposing FRC's positions on certain issues.
It will be interesting to see whether any of the major liberal media outlets give this prominent coverage. After all, in most recent shooting incidents there has been immediate anti-conservative, anti-Republican finger-pointing by Democrats and their media parrots, but there has been zero evidence to support those charges. The Arizona shooting was the worst example, with the shooter not only insane but seemingly leaning left politically rather than right.
Today's shooting, in which thankfully it seems nobody was killed, is the first I can think of in recent memory where the political (or at least policy) motive is apparent -- and where the motivation is against conservatives." (The American Spectator)
