MORE ON THE DALLAS HONOR KILLINGS


Michelle has been covering the Dallas Islamic "Honor Killings" wall to wall, and as we learn more about this case, the only thing that screams out louder than where the fundamentalist strain of the "religion of peace" can lead is the stunning silence of the mainstream media in this matter. The emails and statements of friends and family are chilling.

So: big media spends six months on a teenage girl who disappears after on Aruba, but we don't care about 2 American teenage girls who are murdered by their hard core Islamist father for "shaming the family"?

Freedom of religion in this country does not include freedom to murder in the name of that religion. The aversion of big media to this obvious crack in the facade of fundamentalist Islam is as despicable as this zealot who butchered his little girls. Because this is not the only Muslim in America who thinks in these terms. And the media knows it.

Seriously. Fox News hasn't covered this nearly as much as the Holloway case. What's on their liberal agenda, anyway?

TO GREG BARTON:

THINK A MOMENT.

I KNOW THAT MIGHT BE A NOVEL EXPERIENCE FOR YOU BUT TRY IT.

YOU OFFER THE FACT THAT FOX HASN'T COVERED THIS STORY.

AND THEN HAVE THE STUPIDITY TO CONNECT THAT TO THEIR "RIGHT-WINGINESS" OR GOP PARTISANSHIP.

AS IF THAT SHOWED THEIR HYPOCRISY AND TAWDRINESS.

WHAT IT REALLY PROVES

IS THAT FOX IS NOT BIASED AT ALL.

AND THIS IS BACKED UP BY TWO STUDIES: ONE BY THE JFK SCHOOL AT HARVARD AND ANOTHER BY GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITY.

FOX IS THE LEAST BIASED LEAST PARTISAN OF ANY MAJOR NETWORK - ON CABLE OR BROADCAST.

AND LESS BIASED THAN ANY MAJOR NEWS PROVIDER IN ANY MEDIUM.

THAT THEY DON'T COVER THIS HONOR-KILLING STORY PROVES HOW PERVASIVE DENIAL IS ION THE USA.

AND THAT BLAMING ISLAM ITSELF IS NOT PC.

THIS MAN WHO MURDERED HIS DAUGHTER WAS NOT A RADICAL.

HE WAS FOLLOWING LONG HELD TRADITIONS IN ISLAM.

ISLAM IS NOT A ROP.

IS IT A MARTIAL CREED WHICH BRAINWASHES MANY OF ITS PRACTITIONERS.

AND ALLOWS THEM TO MURDER THEIR DAUGHTERS AND RAISE THEM TO BE GENOCIDAL SUICIDE KILLERS.

IF FOX WAS LESS LIKE THE OTHER MAJOR MEDIA AND NOT IN DENIAL THEN THEY WPOULD COVER THIS STORY MORE THAN THEY HAVE.

SO...

THANLKS FOR POINTING OUT HOW UNPARTISAN AND HOW MIDDLE-OF-THE-ROAD FOX REALLY IS.

I WATCH FOX.


AND I HAVE KNOW THIS FOR THE LONGEST TIME.

AS MOST VIEWERS OF FOX DO.

IT IS THE LEAST BIASED OF ALL TV NEWS.

BUT EVEN THEY HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO.

BUHBYEEE.

I would add to the inane "shot" at Fox from Mr. Barton that he should do his research before taking cheap shots. This was under the National News section on that site.

I would also add that I just did a google search "cnn honor killings dallas" and all I found was other blogs asking why CNN hasn't covered it.

The only story a similar search on MSNBC yielded was from the LOCAL NBC affiliate in Dallas. I stress the word LOCAL. Nevertheless (no doubt because of the blogs) it was one of the "most viewed" on the MSNBC site, no doubt because many of the blogs referenced it. It is much much more difficult to hide news from the public on the Web. At least those who have not taken the Kool-Aid.

Same search for CBS: Only a mention of the Dallas CBS affiliate in a Washington Times story. Which I assume means there was a story there, I did not pursue further. But I would guess that if the big networks had given the story prominence, the Times would not have had to reference the affiliate's LOCAL story.

The "paper of record" the New York Times? NADA. Washington Post? NADA

I stand by my contention that the elite media--especially those who are playing "The Emperor's New Clothes" (see no evil, report no evil) with our Islamist enemies--are by their omission going out of their way, the wool over the eyes of millions of Americans who are not so interested as to go digging for their news on the Web.

The MSM's bias is not only its spin on stories it does cover which fit its tunnel vision world view, it also--by omitting stories that would alarm and WAKE UP the American people--is doing an enormous disservice to the American electorate, and making more murders like this likely.

So take your snarky BS elsewhere, please.

The difference is that when someone kills her little kids in the name of Christianity it is all over the national news, every network. But let a Muslim murder his teenage daughter BECAUSE THEIR RELIGIOUS TEXTS CALL FOR IT, and the silence from the very same media is deafening.
