Mainstream media and Islamists

Reader comment on item: The Snipers: Crazy or Jihadis?

Submitted by John Gould, Jr. (United States), Nov 7, 2002 at 16:10

Since the mainstream media, both print and airwaves, can't seem to acknowledge that the terrorists, bombers, snipers, etc. all happen to be "radical Islamists", it must well be that Islam is a "peaceful religion". Yeh, right! I'll believe that when the Panama Canal is blocked by icebergs and the sun comes up in the southwest! When they fail to publish what is patently obvious to the rest of the American public, they really insult our intelligence. It is no wonder that we can't trust what we read in the papers or see and hear on TV and radio.
