Just because Norway's confessed murderer is a blond, blue-eyed, Norwegian-born, anti-Muslim crusader doesn't mean he's not a swarthy, ululating madman. (5:09)

[LAUGHTER]

OF COURSE, TODAY HERE AND ALL

AROUND THE WORLD, ALL OUR

THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TONIGHT ARE

WITH THE PEOPLE OF NORWAY, WHO

SUFFERED AN UNSPEAKABLE TRAGEDY

ON FRIDAY.

THE KILLER HAS BEEN CAUGHT, HAS

CONFESSED AND NO PUNISHMENT IS

TOO HARSH FOR HIM.

THE HORROR HE HAS WREAKED IS

INCOMPREHENSIBLE AND WORDS FAIL

THE CIVILIZED.

BUT SOMETIMES IN A CRISIS, TRUE

HEROES EMERGE, LIKE THE BRAVE

MEN AND WOMEN OF AMERICA'S

NEWSROOMS, WHO IDENTIFIED THE

CULPRIT LONG BEFORE THE

NORWEGIAN AUTHORITIES DID.

[LAUGHTER]

>> WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS

BLAST?

WELL, NORWAY HAS BEEN GRAPPLING

WITH SOME HOME-GROWN TERROR

PLOTS LINKED TO AL QAEDA.

>> WITHOUT ALL THE FACTS IN, THE

FINGER OF SUSPICION WOULD

SUGGEST THAT THIS IS PROBABLY

MIDDLE EASTERN IN ITS ORIGIN.

>> TWO DEADLY TERROR ATTACKS IN

NORWAY IN WHAT APPEARS TO BE THE

WORK ONCE AGAIN OF MUSLIM

EXTREMEISTS.

>> Stephen: AND THE PRINT

MEDIA DID ITS PART, LIKE

JENNIFER RUBIN WHO WROTE, "THERE

IS A SPECIFIC JIHADIST

CONNECTION HERE.

THIS IS A SOBERING REMINDER FOR

THOSE WHO THINK IT'S TOO

EXPENSIVE TO WAGE WAR AGAINST

JIHADISTS."

AND THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL"

SAID, AYMAN AL-ZAWAHIRI HAS

REPEATEDLY SINGLED OUT NORWAY.

AND YOU KNOW THE "WALL STREET

JOURNAL" IS ACCURATE BECAUSE AS

A MURDOCH PAPER, THEY'VE GOT

PROVEN WAYS TO GET INSIDE

INFORMATION.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]

NOW, IT TURNS OUT ON SATURDAY WE

FOUND OUT THE ATTACKS WERE

CARRIED OUT BY ANDERS BREIVIK, A

NATIVE NORWEGIAN CHRISTIAN WITH

A 1500 PAGE MANIFESTO RAILING

AGAINST THE MUSLIMIZATION OF

EUROPE.

SOME SAY THESE FALSE REPORTS OF

MUSLIM INVOLVEMENT WERE A

WIDESPREAD FAILURE OF THE MEDIA,

BUT I SAY BY GOING WITH THEIR

GUT, THESE JOURNALISTS WERE ABLE

TO GET THE STORY THEY WANTED AND

SCOOP REALITY.

[LAUGHTER]

AND EVEN IF THERE WAS A RUSH TO

JUDGMENT, WE MUST NOT REPEAT

THAT MISTAKE BY RUSHING TO

ACCURACY.

[LAUGHTER]

JUST BECAUSE... JUST BECAUSE THE

CONFESSED MURDERER IS A BLONDE,

BLUE-EYED, NORWEGIAN-BORN

ANTI-SLIM CRUSADER DOES NOT MEAN

HE'S NOT A SWARTHY, ULULATING,

MIDDLE EASTERN MADMAN.

[LAUGHTER]

JIM?

>> WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE FACT

HE LOOKED NORDIC?

>> IN THE FIRST FEW HOURS AFTER

ANY SUCH EVENT, THERE'S SO MUCH

INFORMATION OR MISINFORMATION

DRAWING ABOUT, I WOULDN'T WANT

TO DRAW TOO MANY CONCLUSIONS.

MAYBE IT WAS A GOOD DISGUISE.

[AUDIENCE REACTS]

>> Stephen: YES, WHICH IS MORE

PLAUSIBLE: A NON-MUSLIM DID THIS

OR AL QAEDA HAS DEVELOPED

POLY-JUICE POTION?

[APPLAUSE]

NOW, FORTUNATELY COOLER HEADS

ARE COVERING THEIR ASSES.

IN AN EDITORIAL RESPONSE TO

THEIR EDITORIAL, THE "WALL

STREET JOURNAL" CALLS BREIVIK AN

AL QAEDA COPYCAT AND REMINDS US

THAT IF THIS DOES PROVE TO BE

THE WORK OF ISLAMISTS, IT WILL

BE NOTED THAT NEITHER NORWAY'S

OPPOSITION TO THE WAR IN IRAQ

NOR ITS CONSIDERABLE FINANCIAL

AND POLITICAL SUPPORT FOR THE

PALESTINIANS SPARED IT FROM

ATTACK.

AND IF THAT HYPOTHETICAL DAY

SHOULD COME, THAT'S AN IMAGINARY

LESSON THEY WILL NOT SOON

PRETEND TO FORGET.

[LAUGHTER]

AND AS THE "WASHINGTON POST"'S

JENNIFER RUBIN WROTE IN HER

RETRARKS "THE JIHADIST LINKS DID

NOT BARE UP, BUT THERE ARE MANY

MORE JIHADISTS THAN BLONDE

NORWEGIANS OUT THE KILL

AMERICANS."

RIGHT.

SO IF YOU'RE PULLING A NEWS

REPORT COMPLETELY OUT OF YOUR

ASS, IT IS SAFER TO GO WITH

MUSLIMS.

THAT'S NOT PREJUDICE.

THAT'S PROBABILITY.

BECAUSE THE NEWS BUSINESS IS ALL

ABOUT GUESSTIMATING, JUST TAKING

SHOTS IN THE DARK.

IT'S FRIDAY, YOU'RE TRYING TO

BEAT THE TRAFFIC FOR THE

WEEKEND, YOU HEAR ABOUT A

HORRIBLE ATTACK AND YOU ROLL THE

BONES AND GO MUSLIM.

SAME WAY WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE

TURN THE WRONG WAY UP A ONE-WAY

STREET YOUR JOURNALISTIC

INSTINCTS GO, "ASIAN."

AFTER ALL, BY JENNIFER RUBIN'S

LOGIC, THERE ARE MANY MORE

ASIANS THAN AMERICANS OUT THERE.

THE POINT IS, THIS MONSTER MAY

NOT BE MUSLIM, BUT HIS HEINOUS

ACTS ARE INDISPUTABLY MUS-LISH.

WE MUST NOT LET HIS ISLAMESQUE

ATROCITIES DIVERT OUR ATTENTION

FROM THE TERRIBLE PEOPLE HE

REMINDS US OF.

NOW, I HAVE A CONFESSION.

SOMETIMES THERE ARE FEELINGS

THAT CROSS MY MIND THAT I DO NOT

IMMEDIATELY REPORT AS NEWS.

WELL, I'M SORRY FOR THAT.

I LET YOU DOWN AND IT WILL NOT

HAPPEN AGAIN.

SO TO MY FELLOW JOURNALISTIC GUN

JUMPERS, I WILL NOW WRITE ALL

THE HEADLINES FOR THE REST OF

THE YEAR.

"BAD THINGS HAPPENED SOMEPLACE.

MUSLIMS INVOLVED."

OKAY.

DONE.

NOW WE CAN PUT OUR JOURNALISTIC

ENERGIES WHERE THEY'RE NEEDED,

WRITING THE RETRACTIONS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

[CHEERING AND APPLAUSE]
