    according to the one of the leading liberal psycho media organs, in this case the Boston Globe.

    Roger Simon comments regarding the Marathon bombers:

    "[W]e have the worst possible president to deal with the situation. And even after an event as heinous as Boston, he is supported by a media desperate to preserve his narrative at all costs. It’s already started. On Saturday the Boston Globe published an article titled — I kid you not — “Islam might have had secondary role in Boston attacks.” (Don’t look for what might have the primary role. You won’t find it.) That stupefying essay is a harbinger of what’s to come as soon as the atmosphere dies down, perhaps as soon as next week."

    The Globe story is by Lisa Wangsness. It is a classic of its kind.

    It’s all so complex, of course. As Wangsness puts it, “family, neighbors, friends, and social media sources painted a complex picture of the brothers’ religiosity.”

    The headline on Wangsness’s story inspired James Taranto to write a series of #BostonGlobeHeadlines on Twitter. He helpfully provided the template — “Cause Might Have Played Secondary Role in Effect” (Generic) — and then got down to business:

    “Booze Might Have Had Secondary Role in Hangover” #BostonGlobeHeadlines

    “Gravity Might Have Had Secondary Role in Fall” #BostonGlobeHeadlines

    “Fault Might Have Had Secondary Role in Quake” #BostonGlobeHeadlines

    “The Surgeon General Has Determined That Cigarette Smoking Might Have a Secondary Role in Lung Cancer” #BostonGlobeHeadlines

    “Brando Might Have Had Secondary Role in ‘The Godfather’” #BostonGlobeHeadlines

    “Bomb Might Have Played Secondary Role in Japan’s Defeat” #BostonGlobeHeadline

    “Communism Might Have Played Secondary Role in Ukrainian Famine” #BostonGlobeHeadlines (no Pulitzer that year!)
