Even by crazy bicyclist standards, this doesn't come close to making sense.

New York is the news capital of the planet. When news happens in your corner of the world, it gets typed up here. So, you'd think that when two huge white flags mysteriously replaced the American flags that normally fly above the pillars of the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, which was a real thing that happened this morning, reporters would be chasing down leads and questioning sources left and right. You would be wrong, of course, because terror implications or no terror implications, New York reporters would prefer to finish writing their story before lunch rather than take the boring, painful time to actually figure out the truth.
