It’s looking more like the attempt at mass murder in Garland, Texas that left two would-be jihadists dead over the weekend had ISIS fingerprints on it:

But even still…
The elephant in the room is that ISIS has tentacles in the U.S. and yet media focus is on "threat" from Geller. https://t.co/HzN24aW4Dz

It seems like this evidence that ISIS’ reach now extends to the U.S. would be the big story, but a large segment of the press would rather blame radical Islam’s critics. Sticking their heads up their asses is easier than facing reality.
We’ll see how the MSM feels when the self-proclaimed “judge, jury and executioner” of speech is parked outside their doors — after the media has surrendered to them while blaming right-wing critics of Islamic extremism, of course.
In a statement, ISIS took “credit” for the Garland, Texas attempted attack that was thwarted, and said the terrorist group has dozens of “soldiers” in 15 states ready to carry out attacks.
On the other hand, the White House’s Josh Earnest called what happened in Garland a “lone wolf” attack.
So **who are you going to believe?

Update II: If “journalism” were hockey, the AP would be serving a 10-minute major in the penalty box for this pathetic spin:
