According to these trolls, we also overreacted to Pearl Harbor and September 11. And don't even think about bringing up Hiroshima.
Apparently not enough women and children died for Brian Stelter. He shares the same sense and sensibility of the jihad killers. What's irksome is that these are the voices Americans are exposed to on a daily basis. Voices of reason, logic, and Americanism are blacklisted from the airwaves.

Yes, what's everyone getting so worked up about? It was just a jihad mass murder. It isn't as if it was an attack from "right-wing extremists." "CNN's Brian Stelter: Media "Overreacted" To Boston Marathon Bombings," from Real Clear Politics, December 27:CAROL COSTELLO, CNN HOST: Brian, the kind of coverage that the media obviously is not going to change; I would predict that it's going to be like this for some time to come and that's partly why journalists are as admired as lawyers and car salesmen. And I apologize to lawyers and car salesmen. So what's the answer?
BRIAN STELTER, CNN SENIOR MEDIA CORRESPONDENT: Well partly, it is to seek out a variety of sources. I remember when I read about Glenn Beck's comments, about that Saudi national, I was curious about him. So I was able to search other sources and you know it turned out a week and a month later. Places like Media Matters reminded us that Glenn Beck seemed to be wrong about that one.
In retrospect I wonder if there was an overreaction in the press because considering the relatively low -- low number of deaths and injuries. Now whether it was taken out of proportion, given all the other violence we see all the time. Because the word "terrorism" was applied, I think there may have been an overreaction for that reason.
