The bad news:
ABC (Australia) decided to publish the incredibly offensive and sickening Tariq Ramadan article I noted before that effectively justified and excused Mohammed Merah's murderous spree as being really the fault of French society. The very idea that his words are worthy enough to be copied in a major media outlet is almost worse than the drivel he wrote to begin with, and it shows how sick the mainstream media often is in its pursuit of a far left agenda.
The good news:
Practically every commenter at the ABC site rips the article apart.
Ordinary people are sometimes quite a bit brighter than the self-declared intellectuals.
