Irresponsibility of the Media

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?

Submitted by David J. Fleming (United States), Oct 2, 2002 at 13:58

Not only in Pakistan do the media attempt to whitewash the role of Militant Islamism in the murder of Christians, they also back away from mentioning that the "insurgents" attempting a coup in the Ivory Coast were (guess what?) Militant Islamists. But you'd never know that from reading an AP wire story.

Can Mr. Pipes put up an article on that?
