Hasn’t the media been totally irresponsible regarding the Times Square incident, giving detailed instructions on the air on how to find hidden VIN numbers and set up propane tanks on slow leak so they’ll blow more easily, and then going on and on about how stupid and inept the terrorist was — enough to irk any variety of off-center types to give it another, perhaps more effective try. Why feed the warped imaginations of frustrated would-be terrorists, not to mention goosing the egos of those clever and evil enough to do something terrible. Oh, that’s right, sensationalism at all costs is good for ratings. Welcome to another century of mayhem and “if it bleeds, it leads” journalism.
