Remember when MSNBC posed the question ‘Who cares?’ about the religion of the Fort Hood shooter? Or when the media were quick to simply label Nidal Hasan as a lone wolf? The [Reuters] article ("Norway attack: Right-wing extremism emerging?") mentions that the Norway terror suspect, Anders Behring Breivik, is a right-wing extremist – no less than 25 times. The liberal media has been quick to cite right-wing extremism for every horrific event (Tucson shooting, census worker suicide, etc.) for about 10 years now, so they will be quick to score political points off the graves of over 90 innocent people by labeling the suspect as being part of a right-wing Christian group, no doubt. If that is part of his background, then it is vital information to a report. But so is having a history of Islamic extremism.
The media takes careful steps to cover up information when a terror attack is perpetrated by a Muslim, but are willing to point out that a terror attack has been perpetrated by a right-wing Christian ad-nauseum.
This is why legacy media is dying: it is simply a sad joke that couldn't report honestly on events if it tried. The new book Left Turn proves -- statistically -- that the media is irretrievably biased.
Which is why the vast majority of Americans now dismiss it.
