Georgetown Professor John Esposito comments on Hasan media coverage

In this op-ed, Georgetown Professor of International Affairs and Islamic Studies Dr. John Esposito critiques some of the media’s coverage of the Fort Hood incident. He claims some journalists were too quick to judge in immediately placing the incident and Hasan within a framework of Islam, and discusses how extremist acts by people of Christianity and other religions are often not as strongly linked to their faith as acts by Muslims.
