A ton of them:
Interesting. You’d think that most of these media outlets were reading from the same script. Dude rushes the cockpit while yelling the jihadist war cry and yet most of our beloved and objective local news stations fail to mention it.
And it doesn’t end there. Other outlets are suggesting that perhaps the guy simply had to use the bathroom… badly.
And so the meme continues, truth be damned.
UPDATE: Tom Elia has joined the Bathroomers:
… in the original AP article on the story, AP’s writers helpfully informed its readers, “Authorities do not yet have a motive.”
Further on in the article, in the 13th paragraph, AP attempted to shed some light on the man’s intentions by quoting a relative of the man who helpfully suggested, “He might have seriously mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom…. He’s only been on three planes in his whole life.”
In paragraph 15 and 16, AP ‘s writers remember to explain that the man was yelling “God is great!” or “Allahu Akbar!” as he charged up the aisle.
Clearly, this was a ‘bathroom emergency’ of some immediate urgency.
Thank goodness for the Associated Press and its fearless reporting!
Remember, bathroom emergencies are nothing to laugh at…
