I saw a headline in Rolling Stone last week that read, “The Buffalo Shooter Isn’t a ‘Lone Wolf.’ He’s a Mainstream Republican.” The headline did its job, and I clicked.

Maybe I should have been shocked that nine paragraphs in to the article, the author admits the shooter, “claims to have acted alone“ in his 180-page manifesto. Shouldn’t I have been surprised? Irritated? Even a little bit appalled? Lazy me, I just continued clicking, moving on to the next headline that caught my attention.
