In the midst of MSNBC’s rolling coverage Friday afternoon of what appeared to be an act of terrorism in Germany, breaking news anchor Brian Williams and NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel used the occasion to lament the rise of “a rightward tilt” in Europe of “intolerant” ideologies and parties against Muslims and Middle Eastern refugees. 

Engel was astutely noting the prevalence of European nationals who have gone and fought for ISIS before returning home before changing tune to rewind back to the “growing anger” and outpouring of grief for those killed in the Nice, France radical Islamic terror attack from exactly one week ago.
