Is the Media Not Giving Credit to Muslim Immigrants When They Deserve It?

Does the media have a blind spot when it comes to Muslim immigrants? In this day of “high concept” reporting that must fit an instantly recognizable narrative, is the news media ignoring or downplaying the fact that the man who alerted police to the fizzled Times Square bombing was a Muslim?

(And to short-circuit the kinds of emails and/or comments on websites that may result from us noting this: no, I am not a name is “Gandelman” and I was…bar mitzvahed.)
