In light of my recent posts I should give some credit where due. The media, who has in the past been very quick to start pointing fingers and laying blame, has been carefully avoiding speculation on the shooting of eleven people in a Carson City, Nevada IHOP. Perhaps the embarrassment of their rush to judgment over Jared Loughner eight months ago still stings, or perhaps they’ve really started to return to their journalistic roots. Whatever the reason, I’m glad to just see them stick to the currently-known facts for the moment.
It’s refreshing, and it’s appreciated.
