What is up with America’s major news sources (MSM)? Apparently they saw no “political correctness” conflict in their reporting on the ISIS beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff or British journalist David Haines. So, what changed since February 2013 when two Christians were beheaded by a Muslim in New Jersey? The Minority Report then and now Asylum Watch would like to know why the MSM has only now found their voice. Of course the beheadings were covered extensively by the blogosphere. Here’s some excerpts from the linked article to refresh your memory:
Authorities in New Jersey allege a Muslim man beheaded two Coptic Christians, burying their bodies and heads and hands in separate graves near Philadelphia, bringing the horror of the persecution of Christians in Islamic nations to the United States.
According to New York’s WABC-TV, the Muslim was identified as Yusuf Ibrahim, 28. He was taken into custody after the bodies were found.
The report said investigators alleged Ibrahim killed the victims then severed their heads and hands, and buried the remains in the back yard of a home in Buena Vista, N.J.
The report said the victims were from the Coptic Christian community in the area. One of the victims had come from Egypt not many years ago.
While the report said police did not indicate a motive, friends of the victims wondered if it was something to do with religion.
So, the story was broken by a local ABC affiliate in New York and that was that. If you Google the story you will find page after page of entries from the alternative news sources, but not one from the MSM.
So, what are we to conclude? When it’s American or British journalists that are beheaded by Muslims in Iraq, it is news. When it’s Christians, be they in Egypt or Syria or Iraq or New Jersey. it is not news worthy.
I think there is a clear message being sent by America’s MSM, don’t you?
Well. that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
