The eight steps of the newest news cycle:

1. – There is an attack, using a gun, knife, car, etc., against multiple people in a public space.
2 – I think to myself, “Crap. The Mohammedans are at it again.”
3 – Officials warn me not to jump to conclusions about the nature of the attacker.
4 – The media speculates it may be the work of a right-wing gun nut.
5 – It turns out that the attackers name is Mohamed, Abdul, Faisal, etc.
6 – They are reported to have yelled, “Allahu Akbar” while attacking.
7 – The news media puzzles over what their motives could have been.
8 – My cynicism, disgust and frustration deepen.
