"Clash of Civilisations" reports New York Times

The New York Times used strong, emotive language in the aftermath of the Norway massacre. "Clash of civilization", "cult of death", "terrorist attack". These expressions are normally reserved for Muslim terrorist attacks, and the paper ran with presumption that a Muslim terrorist group was responsible for the attack. But it was not. A right-wing fanatical blue eyed, blonde hair young man was responsible.
