On Tuesday, Sister Toldjah at RedState penned a chunk titled “We Have to Discuss About How the Media Is Labeling the Waukesha Bloodbath.” Whereas “assault” or “rampage” is not unusual, some accounts are in some way softening the linguistic blow.
NBC Information referred to it as an “accident.” MSNBC analyst Clint Watts additionally bumbled into referring to it as an “accident.”
Newsweek and the Related Press each used the phrase “crash” of their headlines:

She added “I checked the CNN residence web page as we speak to see what it seemed like. There was one Waukesha story on it.” How did they discuss with Brooks? As a “crash suspect”.

She mentioned “For sure, primarily based on all the pieces we all know at this level the automobile plowing was no ‘accident’ and it wasn’t merely a ‘crash.'”
This softening can also be what we noticed on the PBS NewsHour web site: “What we all know in regards to the Waukesha Christmas parade crash.” On Wednesday evening, Fox host Greg Gutfeld shot back: “If that automobile crash have been an accident, it qualifies because the longest unintentional automobile crash in historical past.”
After this text, on Wednesday evening, The Washington Submit brought on an uproar on Twitter for saying the rampage was “brought on by an SUV.”

One way or the other, the assault is brought on by a automobile, not an evil human being. It reminds us of a 2016 terrorist occasion in France:
