Rev. Terry Jones has a knack for getting publicity, so it is no surprise he’s inserted himself into the latest controversy involving Islam.

The surprise for Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute is how the media lets Jones get away with it.

"The media apparently are biting on this without asking some critical questions,” she said.

“Specifically, how did Terry Jones have anything to do with the violence? And the answer is, he didn’t!”
