    Last night, a bunch of conservative accounts were tweeting about how the shooter was a Middle Eastern male. The caravan, the birthers, Fake News... It's always fear of the other. When the most dangerous threat to America, apart from dumb people who think they are smart, is angry white men with bad haircuts armed to the fucking teeth.

    Veterans suffering from PTSD and being armed to the teeth inside their homes is subject no politician wants to tackle.

    It’s also a huge problem in our country.

    Even worse, some of those are cops.

    I've noticed CNN doesn't go wall to wall with coverage of these things anymore. I heard about it before I went to bed and they were still doing Trump and election stuff.

    Have we gotten to the point where this is so common it doesn't warrant non-stop coverage or if they gave it non-stop coverage it happens so often they wouldn't have time to cover anything else?

    Or is it a matter of showing restraint and not giving the shooter the publicity he wants?

    More a matter of timing. Still election news going on.
