Would the New York Times cover this differently IF she had been a racists offing money to kill a black person? If that was the case, every conservative would be painted as being just as nutty and dangerous.
If she was a Muslim, the New York Times would cover the story from the viewpoint that ‘all Muslims are peaceful - and this woman acted alone”. They would protect the community.
If she’s a liberal - and member of a liberal fringe group - they won’t cover the story at all - or they’ll bury it.
She got dem crazy eyes!
How about if she were soliciting a hitman for an abortion doctor?
