VOA is walking the dangerous appeasement path of BBC

Reader comment on item: The Voice of America, Silenced on Radical Islam

Submitted by TruthAloneTriumphs (India), Mar 7, 2009 at 05:10

Al-Beeb also known as the "British Bowdlerizing / Brainwashing / Bull--ing Corporation" (take your pick) has already set the precedent for this Dhimmitude in the mainstream media. Under the guise of avoiding to offend Muslim sensibilities (which are questionable anyway), it is purging a lot of stories having references to Islamic terror as plain extremist violence. A recent example is how it termed the 26/11 Muslim marauders in Mumbai as armed gunmen and separatists. It is shocking that VOA is also walking the path of BBC and must wake up before it is too late. All this pseudo-intellectual-moonbat-media persons should realize that by altering the semantics, they are not changing the morbid TRUTH about Islamic extremism. Media is our first line of defense in this war and helps in creating awareness by unshackling minds and empowering opinions; It is a shame to see it being gagged like this by shortsighted idiots. Voice of America needs to be heard loud and clear and VOA should not become Voice-Of-Appeasement!
