I think the media was just surprised he was a christian extremist; I mean, I got a CNN news alert on my phone that someone had opened fire at a youth camp and I immediately thought "muslim terrorist". I know... I'm horrible lol, but that's really how it went down. I suspect their fascination stems from the surprise - not some liberal media conspiracy to make the godless liberals hate christianity. I mean, weren't you surprised to find out he wasn't a muslim terrorist?
The media is grabbing onto whatever it thinks is a story, they're married to sensationalism after all... I do watch fox news on occasion (mostly for comic releif, other times for a specific interview, etc) and they've been very quick to point out the "liberal media" and it's "bias" towards this guy who "there is absolutely no evidence to suggest he was a Christian - NONE!"(Bill O'Reilly)... I think you and Fox News may be grasping at straws here, Jeff.
