Orlando

Well, crap.  Condolences to everyone affected by this atrocity.

Meanwhile, the burying-the-lede contest is on:

CNN: 0 mentions of Islam, prominent link to story on the dangers of guns.
New York Times: 0 mentions of Islam, prominent link to story on the dangers of guns.
Washington Post: 0 mentions of Islam, prominent link to story on the dangers of guns.
ABC Australia: Mentions Islam, mentions recent shooting in Miami, but no lectures.

The American mainstream media are consistently to the left of one of the left-most institutions in Australia.

Oh, and Reddit is a total train wreck on this story.  Just amazingly bad.  The moderators are deleting anything that doesn't fit the narrative, or that questions why so many posts not fitting the narrative are being deleted, or that questions why so many post that question...  Train wreck is putting it mildly.

This is what it looked like:

Update: CNN now has a mention of Islam.  The Washington Post, to its credit, has made that their headline.  And the New York Times...  Has a picture of Obama.

And it looks like a second attack was stopped by police in Santa Monica.  Details are still sketchy.

Retraction Of The Week

Via PowerLine:
The authors regret that there is an error in the published version of "Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies” American Journal of Political Science 56 (1), 34–51. The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed. Thus, where we indicated that higher scores in Table 1 (page 40) reflect a more conservative response, they actually reflect a more liberal response. Specifically, in the original manuscript, the descriptive analyses report that those higher in Eysenck’s psychoticism are more conservative, but they are actually more liberal; and where the original manuscript reports those higher in neuroticism and social desirability are more liberal, they are, in fact, more conservative.
(My bold.)
