For years now we have seen the growing trend of media bias. It seems to have hit a fever pitch over this last year.
The spin on terrorism is among the worst.
Despite the fact that ISIS-inspired and supported terrorist attacks continue to happen, some mainstream media pundits simply refuse to acknowledge that fact.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes seemed to be going out of his way to avoid framing the terrorist attack in Berlin and the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey as terrorist attacks.
Despite knowledge that ISIS supporters have used trucks as terror weapons before and the fact that the venue attacked was a Christmas market, Hayes repeated that authorities “have yet to determine if it was a deliberate attack and much less if it was terrorism.”
Hayes then read aloud a statement from President-elect Trump.
“Our hearts and prayers are with the loved ones of the victims of today’s horrifying terror attack in Berlin. Innocent civilians were murdered in the streets as they prepared to celebrate the Christmas holiday. ISIS and other Islamist terrorists continually slaughter Christians in their communities and places as worship as part of their global jihad.” But Hayes could not leave it there.
“Just to reiterate,” Hayes added, “the deadly incident hasn’t been declared a terrorist attack by the German authorities themselves as of yet.”
As if that were not enough, Hayes continued to spin the day’s news about the assassination of the Russian ambassador. He noted that the assassin said “Don’t forget Aleppo, don’t forget Syria,” but he failed to mention that the assassin also yelled out “Allahu Akbar” as he shot.
This is exactly why many people no longer trust the media to provide a balanced story that includes just the facts. News mirrors commentary in most cases.
