The recent rash of threats against Jewish Community Centers has been pushed by the media as the fault of Trump. Liberals in the press seemed certain that when the culprit was found, he or she would be a Trump supporter.
Now we know that’s not true. The suspect who has been arrested is Juan Thompson, a discredited left wing journalist. Will the media now ignore the story because the narrative changed?

Disgraced journalist Juan Thompson suspected in 8 ‘copycat’ bomb threats against Jewish centers
A suspect arrested in a series of bomb threats against Jewish community centers has been identified as a former reporter who fabricated quotes and invented sources for numerous stories.
The FBI arrested 31-year-old Juan Thompson, of St. Louis, in connection with at least eight threats against Jewish community centers, including some in the New York City area, as part of what federal prosecutors called a “campaign to harass and intimidate” a woman after a breakup.
Nearly 100 JCCs and schools have received bomb threats in five separate waves, most recently Monday — when 21 bomb threats were called in to 13 JCCs and eight Jewish schools in Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia.
OK, one mainstream media outlet is reporting on this.
Man accused of making threats against Jewish community centers arrested in St. Louis
A man accused of making at least eight threats against Jewish community centers, Jewish schools, a Jewish museum and the Anti-Defamation League was arrested by the FBI in St. Louis, Missouri, this morning, though the man is not believed to be the main suspect behind this year’s rash of bomb threats, two law enforcement officials told ABC News.
Juan Thompson, 31, is accused of what federal prosecutors called a “campaign to harass and intimidate.” He’s charged in New York with cyberstalking a New York City woman by communicating threats in the woman’s name. Prosecutors said Thompson appears to have made those threats “as part of a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate” the woman after their romantic relationship ended.
Another narrative advanced against Trump crumbles. Who could have guessed?
