It has become a disgusting habit of contemporary journalism that every time some deranged yob goes off the deep end with a carving knife shouting Allahu akbar, a battalion of television crews surrounds and lays siege to the local mosque until heartfelt on-air disavowals and loud declarations of civic loyalty are extracted from whichever hapless imam happens to answer the doorbell.Well, this is about what I, in my simplicity, call douchebags. But better told and better explained, the article being by Terry Glavin. Enjoy. If you can, that is, the subject is slightly emetic.
This really needs to stop.
