Less than 24 hours after a driver plowed into a crowd Tuesday on the streets of New York City, NBC News faced mockery and criticism for posting a story about American Muslims that critics said was unfounded.

The NBC story suggested that Muslim Americans were fearing a potential “backlash” against their community because the suspect – identified by authorities as Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant from Uzbekistan – shared their faith.

But critics posting on social media derided the network for focusing on an unsubstantiated idea rather than on those killed or injured in the attack.

“Maybe we should focus on those who were brutally murdered than a backlash you hope manifests,” NRA spokeswoman and author Dana Loesch wrote on Twitter

Why is Loesch associated with the NRA and not The Blaze with whom she's employed?

She no longer has a contract with the Blaze and works as a contributor week to week.
