Domestic Terror?

Interesting coverage dichotomy from the New York Times between the Milwaukee mass shooting, now being called a domestic terror act (with no urging from anyone to avoid conclusion jumps) and the foiled plot in Cleveland to blow up the bridge back in May.

The Times has a front page feature today--most likely one of many to come--about all the hate of the Sikh shooter.  No doubt--and probably a load of ignorance, too.  And he can be tied to the far right wing, no doubt about that, either.

But unless my search engines have failed me, here's the NYT story about the Cleveland bomb plot.  Not one mention of any ideological angle, attendance at Occupy Cleveland, or anything that might tell the reader why they wanted to blow up a bridge.
