Stupid question time

And someone's probably already asked this, but for the life of me I can't figure out where.

Why is it that when a militia group that calls themselves 'Christian' is busted for plotting to do bad things, 'Christian' is in the headline of every story about the group, and it's seen in the light of "Look at the awful things being done in the name of Christ", but when someone shoots up an Army base or blows up a subway or massacres people waiting in line to vote, not only is the religion of the perpetrators not mentioned, but it's not considered a reflection on the religion?

Am I being obtuse here?  Or is the assumption being made that most terrorist attacks are executed by Islamofascists, so when something happens that's not Islamocentric, it had better be pointed out so that we don't get the wrong idea about a particular attack?
