How the Media Whitewashes Muslim Persecution of Christians :: Raymond Ibrahim
Raymond Ibrahim identifies a few of the tactics used by the media to blur the reality on how Muslims are persecuting Christians.
We can see similar tactics on all areas of bias identified as being part of the BBC agenda. I’ve pasted below the specific mention to the BBC he’s given here, but it’s well worth reading the whole article.
How the Media Whitewashes Muslim Persecution of Christians
Now consider some MSM strategies. The first one is to frame the conflict between Muslims and Christians in a way that blurs the line between persecutor and victim, for example, this recent BBC report on one of Boko Haram’s many church attacks that left three Christians dead, including a toddler. After stating the bare-bone facts, the report goes on to describe how “the bombing sparked a riot by Christian youths, with reports that at least two Muslims were killed in the violence. The two men were dragged off their bikes after being stopped at a roadblock set up by the rioters, police said. A row of Muslim-owned shops was also burned…” The report goes on and on, with a special section about “very angry” Christians, till one all but confuses victims with persecutors, forgetting what the Christians are “very angry” about in the first place: unprovoked and nonstop terror attacks on their churches, and the murder of their women and children.
