Posted on 12/26/2009 5:19:00 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Imagine that there had been a series of three incidents in which members of a [invented for present purposes] fanatical Jewish sect had attempted to bring down airliners from Arab countries.
In reporting on the latest attempt and describing the previous ones, do you think the New York Times might have mentioned the religion of the perpetrators? So do I.
But with the ledgermain required to describe a spiral staircase without using one's hands, the Gray Lady has managed in its article today to report yesterday's attempt to bring down a NWA airliner, and the earlier attempts by Richard Reid [the "shoebomber'] and the those who plotted to bring down as many as ten jets leaving the UK for the United States jets, without using the word "Muslim."

NY Times too shy to use the M-word ping to Today show list.
Thank God you guys read the NY Times to report this nonsense, because I never could.
This probably won’t even be covered by the NY Slimes.....(Christians are expendable by their thinking after all):
Here is comment found in a newspaper forum....

Breaking news in London Telegraph:
Group of 18 attorneys working on behalf of Mr. Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab is bringing up a lawsuit against the passenger who recklessly asaulted their client.
“It is not about money” says Mr. Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab. “But I will take $ 12 million”.
But....Those muzzie A-rabs HAVE SO MUCH BLEEPING MONEY!!!!
We don’t DARE MAKE THEM MAD!!!
The "dying" MSM must be getting plenty of oil transfusions.
they dont wont to offend Dear Leader by calling out his fellow muslim brethren
Unfortunately, it’s not just the NYT — at no point in their mind-numbingly repetitious, yet oddly uninformative, coverage of this story, has F&F (Fluff&Folly)used the ‘M’ word....
I want to PERSONALLY strangle this bitch-dog.
Maybe Muslims are on to something with the whole 'behead the guy with a dull knife' thing.
Cuz I would.
Not just the NYT- but CNN as well. Last night during their live coverage the anchorman continually called it an “extremist organization”...he simply would not say “Al Qaida”.
The LIBERAL - State Run Media is sickening. May their stocks drop to the point they will be forced to join the government cheese lines.
yes, I agree....every man, flying as a passenger, has to be alert for such attempts at murder, look around your seat area, note your fellow passengers...TSA, the police are unable to act.....it is up us....
Yes, but I could get used to Fox News being an "All Courtney Friel, All the Time" channel! Wow!
In fact, I'd be just fine with just her & Megyn Kelly as the only 2 hosts on Fox News... Well, We'd also need Neal Cavuto and Glen Beck. But just audio for them...
I have two thoughts about this, One, this is another “crisis” (albeit legitimate) that Hussein will use to tighten the screws on US - U S, or, finally they cannot lie any more about it, and wanted to get this through the Xmass news cycle and leave it. I lean towards the former.
Re: Muzzie oil money
The reason they have so much money is that we refuse to continue exploration of our own natural resources, especially natural gas. We need greater energy independence to keep from paying them to kill us.
