Islamic Terror in Kenya? Not According to the BBC

September 21st, 2013 - 7:42 pm

Why?

The real question remains unanswered: Why would the BBC (and innumerable other politically correct media outlets) purposely engage in bad journalism? One must assume that the atheist or nominally Christian BBC reporters in their London offices have no desire to live in a world controlled by Islamic law, nor are they themselves bloodthirsty killers, nor are they members of terrorist organizations. Why then would they go to so such lengths, on a daily basis, to provide cover for Islamic terrorists trying to bully the world into submission through brutality and bloodshed?

One can only speculate. One likely answer is fear: They’re afraid that if they make Muslim terrorists “look bad,” then the infidel reporters (or their offices) will be targeted. But I think the answer is a bit more complicated: The progressive worldview promoted by the BBC and their ilk rests on the notion that first-world nations are oppressors and third-world people are victims, and any incident — such as this one — which undermines this hypothesis must be suppressed. Thus, any time Islamic fundamentalists commit an act of violence, the Western politically correct media does its best to ignore, shrug off or (as we see here) intentionally misreport what happens.

And the next time someone asks for evidence of media bias, send them a link to this essay.

[Note: Like all news Web sites, the BBC is constantly updated, so that by the time you read this essay, the lead article on the BBC will likely have changed to a new one with fresh information, emerging new details, etc. Obviously it would be impossible to analyze each variant of their lead article as it appears; all this essay purports to do is freeze a moment in the ever-shifting news stream and dissect the bias of that moment.]

Kenya - another front in the ISLAMIC WORLD WAR.

Along with: the Philippines, Indonesia, Bali, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Burma, India, Xinjiang, Beslan, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Israel, Egypt, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Uganda, Mali, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cypress, France, the Netherlands, Germany, London, Scotland, Sweden, Spain, New York, Ft. Hood, Little Rock, Washington, , Seattle, Toronto, Caracas, Argentina......and on, and on....

It's not "The War on Terror" because we aren't the ones initiating it. It is THE ISLAMIC WORLD WAR because Islam is attacking us, we are on the defensive.

The war is not against a tactic, it is against an idea. The idea is Islam. The enemy is Mecca. We must face this truth.

Islam is not a religion. It is a death worshipping cult whose sacrament is murder. How else does one explain the world wide atrocities committed by its adherents. From raping minor children in sham marriages to killing babies with rocks, from blowing up civilian airplanes to machine gunning hapless shoppers at a mall, these barbarians feel no remorse. Just the opposite, they laud the murderers, create heroes of baby killers and teach their children to slaughter without mercy any who stand in their way. They deny historical facts and wish to spread their cult like cancer through the world. The barbarians are at the gates and those elected to protect are in their pockets.

How many Muslims in America and Britain have denounced this brutal massacre by fellow Muslims acting in the name of Islam?

They can't honestly as these terrorist murderers did exactly what Mohammad would want them to do and every non-brain dead Muslim knows it.

Just as a comparison showing how it's supposed to be done:

And Yanks can pressure their TV companies not to buy BBC programmes. If you care that much...

Just stop paying your TV license. Now. Go to the bank and stop your direct debit. Now. If enough people did that...

Stop whining and DO something.

BBC must be taking lessons from AP and Reuters. The majority of AP & Reuters "news" reports lately have relegated the who, what, where, when, and how/why to the the third or fourth paragraph. You would think every article is a feature story. And they set the standards for good journalism.

anyone who gets their "news" from the BBC or the NYslimes or al sharpton and his supporters, or CAIR or the anti-NYPD crowd is nothing more than a slug. the level below a worm. these moslem creatures at the mall told muslims to "leave" before they started killing non-muslims, aka infidels. there are over 70 to 80 dead and hundreds wounded. but, hey, don't be islamophobic or by the same token, naziophobic.

I attended the National Association of Brodcasters with a colleague around 2005 or so. On the way back to the airport we were in a taxi with two BBC reporters who ripped on Fox News and George Bush big time. The taxi driver vented several leftist conspiracy theories. I held my tongue, since I tend to get carried away and didn't want to vent of these fools in front of a work colleague, specially since I knew he was a moderate lefty (but he was embarrassed by the fools, and didn't say a thing about politics the whole way).

Interesting...... These liberal "journalists" will probably be among the first beheaded when sharia law is imposed in England.

It is not fear of Islam, but sympathy for Islam. The BBC, once dominated by communists, is now dominated by Islamist sympathizers. Suicidal Islamist sympathizers since most BBC employees are Hindu, homosexual, feminist or atheists.

In the 80s I taught media studies - not the French kind - and made arrangements to have the news videotaped simultaneously in Australia, the UK and the US. The big surprise was how the BBC was doing the most subjective journalism. They demonised the Irish terrorists who had just blown up something - precisely the opposite to what they are doing now by playing down Islamic terrorism. And then they did a mocking story about French student riots portraying them a frisky idiots, but sigh, they are French. Sky News portrayed the Irish bomb factually while the US reported it minimally and the Aussies not at all. I first learned that the BBC was not all it was cracked up to be in 1956 when their coverage became highly nationalistic during the Suez crisis and Voice of America took up the 'balanced' middle position between the BBC and Radio Moscow.

What is the difference between the kind of 'media studies' you taught and the 'French kind'?

And why do you think that it is justifiable for Irish terrorists to 'blow up something' as opposed to other terrorists?
