The fact that mainstream media coverage of the Muslim terrorist attacks in Moscow was predictable makes it no less craven.
The Wall Street Journal (the hero of the story) ran the story above the fold, with a dramatic photo of a survivor, correctly identifying the bombers as an "Islamic insurgency."
The New York Times likewise put the story on the front page. Their headline, however, reads: "Attack Victims Are Mourned as Russia Weighs Its Response." So as not to offend anyone, no mention of the identity of the attackers is made.
A second New York Times story addresses the nettlesome question of who those "attackers" were, but since "terrorist" is the new T-word, the word "bombers" seemed less offensive. A first draft of their headline might have read: "Russia's Fear of Bombers Is Revived." But it sounded silly. Everyone fears bombers. If you learn that bombers are around, you want some clues to help identify them. It's almost a genetically programmed response, like asking how someone died so you know what to look for when it's your turn. The Times then discovered the appropriate modifier and ran with it: "Russia's Fear of Female Bombers Is Revived." That's right, female.
The Boston Globe can be relied on to follow the lack of leadership of its big brother, with even greater lack. The Moscow story does not appear at all on the Globe's webpage, bumped by breaking news: "Unwanted phone charges raising ire."
In the paper edition, the Globe tucked the Muslim terrorist attack into the "In the News" bullet points on the left column. It only rated second place on the list however. Number one was: "Nine purported members of a Christian militia group...charged with conspiring to kill police." No beating around the bush there. A Christian conspiracy ranks above a Muslim mass murder.
The militia is identified as "Christian" since cop-killing militia groups, it is well known, derive their marching orders from the Bible.
The Globe's Moscow story? "Russia blamed Caucasus separatists for the suicide blasts."
If I were profiling terrorists using the Times and the Globe as my sources, I'd be on the lookout for Caucasian females.
The NY Times was all over the “christian” milita group. They even posted the mugshots of these white right wingers. NY Times is watching out for terrorism dontcha know.
I can bet the Cantor threat arrest didn’t get much mention, I hear it was not mentioned in 2 of the 3 broadcast network newscasts.
Yeah, much safer to attack the Christians...let's hear again about those bold journalist fighting to get the story out....ha....NOT!
it’s = its *sigh*
C’mon, couldn’t you have linked to a picture of her visit to Afghanistan where she’s hefting a rather large piece of weaponry?? (I don’t know anything about military weapons but it was a big rifle.) It’s one of my favorite pictures of her.
“I’d be on the lookout for Caucasian females”
I’m also clueless how to post photos here but I think this is the video I’m thinking about: http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1686894/sarah_palin_rifle_training
(Can’t view the video from this computer. If it doesn’t work, found these postcards: http://www.cafepress.co.uk/antiobamastore.350883778 )
Pray that in 2012 B. Obama doesn’t try to pull a Robert Mugabe move of arresting the opposition.
There does seem to be a move, especially since the health care vote on March 21, of trying to criminalize any dissent from the President’s agenda. We’ll have to see how far they push it before the public pushes back.
The US government once fought a war against Caucasian separatists...600,000 died before it was over.
Actually she was in Iraq, if memory serves me....not Afghanistan... Same difference... She visited the AK National guard there while she was governor
