What The Main Stream Media Does After Every Terror Attack Brilliantly Illustrated

Via Fox News:
Every Islamic terror attack is like a grenade. The blast brutally kills and cripples its victims. Most nearby dive for cover.
That’s what the American media have been doing for decades. Every time another Muslim terrorist beheads, butchers or bombs, journalists do their best to hide from the reality. Or quickly cover up the result as if they believe the rest of us will soon forget.
Recent terror attacks in the United States, Canada, Australia and Israel (journalists love to skip them) haven’t stopped the short-term memory wipe. […]
Remember the media reaction to the riots over Danish cartoons depicting Mohammad in 2005. Two hundred people died in global riots. Even now, the newspaper that published the cartoons must boost security.
But it wasn’t just whether to run the images. It was the rationale. The New York Times didn’t publish the cartoons, calling them “no less hurtful to most Muslims than Nazi caricatures of Jews or Ku Klux Klan caricatures of blacks are to those victims of intolerance.” “That is why the Danish cartoons will not be reproduced on these pages,” it wrote.

In the wake of the latest attack the Times used Twitter to blame the victims saying “#CharlieHebdo has long tested limits with its satire.” Financial Times associate editor Tony Barber, soon after the attack, blamed the magazine for having “a long record of mocking, baiting and needling French Muslims.” I didn’t know “needling” warranted the death penalty.
USA Today responded with the dangerous rantings of Anjem Choudary, “a radical Muslim cleric,” who also criticized the cartoonists. “Islam does not mean peace but rather means submission to the commands of Allah alone,” he admitted. Free people aren’t surprised. He added, “Muslims do not believe in the concept of freedom of expression.”
That anti-freedom argument is what news outlets are surrendering to.
