The Ideological and Intellectual Detritus of a Tragedy: premature judgments in investigations

There were two bomb explosions in Boston yesterday. Little if anything is known about the possible culprit or culprits. Nonetheless...

a commentator on a left-leaning public radio station in Boston said (s)he thought the most likely culprits were right-wing Minutemen

a commentator on a right-leaning radio station in New York City said (s)he thought the most likely culprits were radical Islamists

Both commentators are feckless idiots.
