Soon the media started coming out with headlines which implied that the truck caused this incident out of its own will and refrained from giving any inking that it was a terrorist attack let alone try find out if the attack had any links to a particular religion.

BBC was still hoping that it was all an accident:

Maybe from now on there would also be a distinction made between good trucks and bad trucks:

Finally CBS went so politically correct that it called the Christmas market where the attack happened as a ‘holiday market’:
