Heads in the sand

Paris has been the victim of a coordinated terror attack. Time to wake up ... but CNN managed to cover the story without one use of the dreaded "M" word.

Sadly, I guess this is not enough to wake them from their slumber.

Fox news did better (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2015/11/13/french-police-report-shootout-and-explosion-in-paris/?intcmp=hpbt1), but not much better.

And lest any reader think that perhaps I am jumping the gun, that perhaps Scandinavian nationalists did this, here is a snip from the Fox news report:

"The victims had gathered to see the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal, and a handful managed to escape to tell of the horror taking place inside where the killers shouted "This is for Syria!" and "Alahu Akhbar!" as they cut down patrons from a balcony before the band took the stage."
