Note on tweet from Bikya Masr editor

Note that the editor of Bikya Masr contacted me via Twitter:
@sternfels note the dates on the original postings. they were early Friday! Thanks. I see German papers have now written extensively on it [emphasis mine--ed.]
Note in turn that the German papers started reporting on the incident on the day it occurred, July 1. The pace of reporting I observed seems to me to correlate well with the pace at which the police generally release information in such cases. Would the pace of reporting in German papers have been any different had the victim been an atheist in Dresden murdered by a Muslim? I seriously doubt it.
