Malkin is pretty much on point here, I'd say:
Dr. Tiller's suspected murderer, Scott Roeder, is white, Christian, anti-government and anti-abortion. The gunman in the military-recruitment-center attack, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, is black, a Muslim convert, anti-military and anti-American. Both crimes are despicable, cowardly acts of domestic terrorism. But the disparate treatment of the two brutal cases by the White House and the media is striking.
I plead guilty, but not out of deliberate bias. The Tiller story gripped this blog and its readers and the Cairo speech dominated the rest of the week. But I should have done better. I agree that both crimes are terrorism, and that they deserve equal concern and scrutiny.
