"We may never know his motive."
Tuesday afternoon, CBSNews.com broke a big scoop concerning the Sunday night mass shooting up in Toronto, Canada that left two people dead and 13 wounded. According to the piece on their website, the attacker frequented ISIS propaganda websites and may have lived in the Middle East for some time.
But after covering the attacks for only one day, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News decided to not only skip CBS’s findings, but also skipped reporting on the shooting all together Tuesday evening.
CBS’s findings were in direct contradiction to Canadian authorities that were telling the press they had found no connection between the shooter and terrorism. “The Ministry of Public Safety said Tuesday that they see no link to terrorism,” the CBSNews.com piece wrote. “But a law enforcement source told CBS News that Faisal Hussain visited Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) websites and may have expressed support for the terrorist group.”
