From Andrew Sullivan’s Substack account:

We have yet to find any credible evidence of anti-Asian hatred or bigotry in this man’s history….

And yet. Well, you know what’s coming. Accompanying one original piece on the known facts, the NYT ran nine — nine! — separate stories about the incident as part of the narrative that this was an anti-Asian hate crime, fueled by white supremacy and/or misogyny.

Not to be outdone, the WaPo ran sixteen separate stories on the incident as an anti-Asian white supremacist hate crimeSixteen! One story for the facts; sixteen stories on how critical race theory would interpret the event regardless of the facts.
