Talking point for journalists

Remember, only a tiny minority of Egyptians are Jew-hating misogynists.

Um, wait; maybe that’s not a very good talking point. Maybe you should hush the whole thing up exercise some editorial judgment. No, too late; AP already has it. It might be best to just leave out any elements of the incident that don’t advance the ideological narrative really drive the story. Get out in front of it, say no more than you have to, wait for some tangential distraction, then dismiss the whole thing as old news. Yeah, that’s the way. Better not say “Jew-hating misogynists,” even to deny it.

After all, they might cut your throat.
