Media Providing Cover for Terrorists, Again...

Great op-ed in today's New York Post, revealing the lengths the media will go to in order to keep the terror attacks in Mumbai within what they feel is within the scope of the liberal, politically correct storyline:

Al Jazeera and The Guardian label the terrorists "gunmen"; CNN calls them "militants." Some analysts identified the underlying cause as the Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan. Psychological guru Deepak Chopra called it the result of "collateral damage" from the US war on terrorism and the Iraq war.

I think Mr. Chopra has lost what little credibility he had, for a "guru", anyway....although his stock will likely rise in Holly/Bollywood...

The New York Times theorized that Chabad House may have been an "accidental hostage scene." The BBC initially chose to hide the Jewish character of the target by describing it as just "an office building." Al Jazeera refused to show Chabad House as the site of the carnage. Some Western media outlets unsympathetically labeled victims there as "ultra-Orthodox" or "missionaries."

What fact has been deliberately omitted from all of these august outlet's media report?

The only captured terrorist, Ajmal Kamal, confessed under interrogation that his fellow murderers were specifically ordered to target the Jews killed at Chabad...

But there's no need for you to know this, right? It might "anger up the blood", and allow you to, you know...think independently?
