NBC's Pete Williams reports that the suspect who rammed a vehicle into a barricade outside the U.S. Capitol is a 25 year old man from Indiana, Noah Green. Law enforcement officials say that his Facebook page says he is a follower of the Nation of Islam and posted about losing his job and looking for spiritual guidance.

Unfortunately, you are right. Narrative is very important for the media. MSNBC’s Pete Williams actually reported that it was a “it was a White male that was driving the car -- when the man got out of the car and attacked the police officers with a knife”.

But to me it was interesting how quickly MSNBC pivoted in their narrative once the suspect was identified as a black Muslim. Katy Tur and Kasie Hunt had a long segment devoted to the partisanship of Republicans that had been vocal against security on the Capitol grounds. And on msnbc.com currently there are two separate stories with similar narrative. Apparently attempting to shift blame from the suspect but to lawmakers.

It seem if the crime cannot be attributed to “hate” then the interest from many in the media drops quickly.

Well they keep lumping in the Atlanta shootings as Asian hate crime even though the suspect said it played no part and not all victims were Asian. But it fits their current narrative so they keep running with it.
