Suspect In Would-Be Airport Bombing Nabbed With Help From REI : The Two-Way : NPR
"King pointed out the particulars of the story — an improvised weapon, planted at an airport, by a man who said he was declaring war. King asked what would happen if the attacker were "an immigrant, or a Muslim, or a Mexican ... Mainstream American outlets would be covering the heroic bravery of those who thwarted the terrorist plot. ... in this case, though? Crickets.""

The D-Squared Digest One Minute MBA Part 2: Managing the Risk of Getting Killed
"Ambiguous instructions infallibly generate errors. This is a lot of the reason why so much �management-speak� is so pedantic and goes so humourously out of its way to state the obvious."

Last Friday, a white dude tried to blow up a plane to "fight a war" in America and no one cared / Boing Boing
Last Friday, a white guy named Michael Christopher Estes walked into Asheville Regional Airport in North Carolina, dressed in black and carrying an AN/FO chemical explosive as well as sharp nails and bullets, used to create shrapnel in such bombs.

He was arrested and he told the arresting officers that his terrorist attack was motivated by his desire to "fight a war on U.S. soil."

Had he been a Muslim, or black, this would have been a bigger story than the Vegas shooting. Because he was your basic deranged white guy who wanted to burn the planet down, it's no news at all.

Gunshots, a Cry of ‘Kill the Hostages,’ Then Freedom for Canadian-American Family - The New York Times
The return trip was complicated by Mr. Boyle’s refusal to board an American C-130 to take the family out of Pakistan and to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, where Americans have been accused of abusing detainees. His father said Mr. Boyle was philosophically opposed to traveling to the base.

After marrying in 2011, Ms. Coleman and Mr. Boyle spent months traveling in Central America before leaving for a trip through Russia and Central Asia. They had planned to leave Afghanistan in late 2012 because of Ms. Coleman’s pregnancy. But they were kidnapped in October of that year while backpacking in Wardak Province, a militant stronghold near Kabul.

Social Media’s Challenge to Journalistic Norms and Values during a Terror Attack: Digital Journalism: Vol 5, No 9
Over the past decade, the frequency of terror attacks around the world has increased. In the context of the 22 July 2011 terror attacks in Norway, social media use by citizens, and even victims, became an essential feature of reporting. Social media confronted the legacy media’s way of covering crisis events. It raised questions about traditional journalism’s ability to handle audience’s as, not only news consumers, but also producers. In the present article, we look at the ways in which the professional norms and values of traditional journalism are specifically challenged by social media use in times of terror, using the 22 July 2011 attacks as a case study. We find that Norwegian journalists initially held to their professional roles, and to the classic self-representational principles of journalism, including objectivity, autonomy and immediacy. When they integrated social media into their traditional platforms and modes of coverage, they framed it as a “source” of sorts. As the 22 July 2011 event coverage became more focused on the collective grief felt by the nation, in turn, the traditional journalistic principles of objectivity and autonomy became less relevant, enabling yet more audience participation and social media use in relation to the attack.

The Airport Bomber From Last Week You Never Heard About
"The story didn’t go viral and Trump didn’t tweet about it because the bomb was not placed by an immigrant, or a Muslim, or a Mexican. It was placed there by a good ol’ white man, Michael Christopher Estes. Unlike the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, whose motive is still hard to discern, Estes wanted to be very clear that his ultimate goal was to accelerate a war on American soil.

Sorry if it sounds like you’ve heard this story before. I’m as tired of writing it as you are reading it, but you know good and well that if Estes was a young Muslim — hell, if he had ever even visited a mosque in the past 25 years — that Trump would be tweeting about him right this very moment to tout how essential a Muslim ban is for American safety."
