Oslo Suspect Wrote of Fear of Islam and Plan for War

Fascinating! After I linked to the NYT story in the blog post below, the newspaper changed the headline. Instead of the dubious and inflammatory "Christian Extremist Is Charged in Norway", the same story is now headed: "Oslo Suspect Wrote of Fear of Islam and Plan for War". How much more neutral can you get?

The lead paragraph remains the same, however, as does the lead on the NYT story on the Fort Hood shooter, whose ethnicity and religious affiliation are doggedly concealed from view. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
