<p>During MSNBC&rsquo;s live breaking news coverage of the suspected terrorist attacks in London on Wednesday, NBC News reporter Matt Bradley reported via phone from the British capital and was more worried about the violence helping conservative politicians than he was about the victims:&nbsp; <strong>&ldquo;We&#39;ve seen this rise of a kind of a right-wing movement here and throughout Europe. And this is only going to put wind in the sails of those who would say that this is an issue that needs to be looked at, that needs to be examined in terms of refugees.&rdquo; </strong></p>

<p>Desperately trying to downplay any possible connection to Islamic terrorism, Bradley touted: &ldquo;But it should be noted, that MI-5, which is the domestic intelligence agency and police agency for the UK, they&#39;ve come out and said that there is no terror link so far.&rdquo; Anchor Ali Velshi replied: &ldquo;Yeah, good point. They&rsquo;re saying that it&#39;s too early to say, certainly, that it isn&#39;t, they&rsquo;re still trying to get it locked down.&rdquo;</p>
