Tammy’s latest Washington Times column addresses Mollie’s murder.

With the correct headline.

Tammy Bruce: The latest murder by an illegal alien

Via Daily Caller.

The New York Times opted to delete the immigration status of the man suspected of killing
Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts in an update to a headline about the incident Wednesday.
According to the Twitter account Editing TheGrayLady, The Times made a number of changes to the headline of its story on Tibbetts’s murder before finally falling on “Immigrant Is Charged In Mollie Tibbetts Murder in Iowa, and Trump Seizes on Case.” ….

Initially, after editors at The Times learned that an illegal immigrant was the suspect behind her murder, the headline read “Trump Seizes on Killing of College Student, After Undocumented Immigrant’s Arrest.”

After several minor changes over the next two hours, The Times eventually deleted the word “undocumented,” with the current headline reading “Immigrant Is Charged in Mollie Tibbetts Murder in Iowa, and Trump Seizes on Case.”….

The removal of “undocumented” did not come with any news from law enforcement officials on the suspect’s immigration status.

Further, the lede of the article seems to contradict its headline, with the copy clearly stating that the suspect, Christian Bahena-Rivera, was in the country illegally at the time of his arrest….
