A quick look at Fox News' web site, Michellemalkin.com, and Hot Air shows that even most of the Usual Suspects are not jumping on the Jihadi Did This bandwagon in regard to the Times Square bombing.

But for once, even those who usually profit off of whipping people into a frenzy of fear seem to have decided to behave responsibly.
