The MSM Playbook For Covering a Terror Attack

Sphere: Related Content

I think they teach this in the Columbia, NYU and Cal Berkley journalism departments.

Some background: A Muslim man named Mohammed rides up on a bike, shoots an eight-year old Jewish girl outside a Hebrew school while smiling and videotaping it and then proceeds to kill her brothers, her Rabbi father and military personnel. He then holes himself up and, after a siege, goes out in a blaze of jihadist glory with guns blazing.

To any sane person, this was a cut and dried case of terrorism specifically aimed at Jews and the military. The Jewish aspect alone makes it what liberals like to call a "hate crime". But wait, the sadistic, religion-inspired actions of this pig make it even more horrifying:
The Muslim fanatic who killed seven people in France was so proud of his unspeakably evil work that he uploaded sickening video to the Internet showing him executing a helpless, terrified 8-year-old girl, officials said.

Mohammed Merah is seen yanking Myriam Monsenego by her hair — then firing a bullet into her head while he holds her.

Officials believe Merah strapped on a camera before each murder and posted the videos on jihadi Web sites, where he believed they would inspire other al Qaeda wannabes.

Myriam was slain outside a Jewish school in Toulouse, where Merah also killed a rabbi and the rabbi’s two young sons.
This was Myriam:

Now think about this: you have a piece of shit all jacked up on Islam, doing what his religious leaders tell him to do--kill infidels, especially Jews--actually holding up a child and shooting her in the head while taping it and then continuing on his killing spree and posting the carnage to inspire other jihadi's. Is there any more clear example that this is religion-based terrorism?

With all that being said, how does the media opt to cover it? Mark Steyn walks us through it:
Stage One: The strange compulsion to assure us that the killer is a “right wing conservative extremist,”...

So on to Stage Two: Okay, he may be called Mohammed but he’s a “lone wolf.” Sure, he says he was trained by al-Qaeda, but what does he know? Don’t worry, folks, he’s just a lone wolf like Major Hasan and Faisal Shahzad and all the other card-carrying members of the Amalgamated Union of Lone Wolves. All jihad is local.

On to Stage Three: Okay, even if there are enough lone wolves around to form their own Radio City Rockette line, it’s still nothing to do with Islam. I’m sad to see the usually perceptive Ed West of the London Telegraph planting his flag on this wobbling blancmange.

And then, of course, Stage Four: The backlash that never happens. Because apparently the really bad thing about actual dead Jews is that it might lead to dead non-Jews: “French Muslims Fear Backlash After Shooting.” Likewise, after Major Hasan’s mountain of dead infidels, “Shooting Raises Fears For Muslims In US Army.” Likewise, after the London Tube slaughter, “British Muslims Fear Repercussions After Tomorrow’s Train Bombing.” Oh, no, wait, that’s a parody, though it’s hard to tell.
Exactly. Read the whole thing and click the links as it's well worth your time.

Let me say this once again: the 8-year old girl pictures above was grabbed by her hair, lifted up and shot through the head (while the scumbag taped it). The media is trying to white wash this because it makes Muslim's look bad. The former is horrifying, the latter is unconscionable. If this had been a Jew or a Baptist snuffing the life of Muslim in such a sadistic way, there would be worldwide riots and it would be on the front page of every major newspaper in America.
