Islamic Terrorist Mall Attack

First off, to top this entire shit stink off, there’s this according to CNN International: “Three of the alleged attackers are from the United States, two are from Somalia and there is one each from Canada, Finland, Kenya and the United Kingdom, according to the list.”

Ain’t that fucking wonderful?

Anyway …

Five paragraphs down in a CNN International report on the islamic terrorist attack in Kenya, comes the first mention of “Al-Shabaab militants.”

Not Al Shabaab islamic militants, just Al Shabaab militants.

And “militants” not terrorists. Gunmen not “terrorist.” Attackers not “terrorists.”

Not until paragraph 17 do we get to call these pieces of shit “terrorist.”

The first mention of “muslim” is in paragraph 18 “…“all Muslims” were escorted from the mall before the attack.”

When the hell is the media going to report stories instead of politically correct versions thereof?

I guess you gotta make excuses for these islamic cowards who perpetrate this stuff and their supporters, the eight zillion members of the medieval religion who don’t LOUDLY condemn them.

But, hey, that’s just my way of thinking.

8-23-13 UPDATE: WSJ ... paragraph 10 ...first mention of a "Somali militant islamist group"
8-23-13 UPDATE: WaPo ... no mention of islam whatsoever.
8-23-13 UPDATE: BBC News ... no mention
8-23-13 UPDATE: CTV News (Canada) ... mention "islamic extremists" in first paragraph
8-23-13 UPDATE: NYT ... no mention
8-23-13 UPDATE: Chicago Times ... first mention on page 2, paragraph 15.

Is it me or is there a pattern here? They're supposed to teach the 5Ws in J-School: Who, what, why, where, when. That's how you're "supposed" lead a story.  I guess getting the players right isn't so important when it has to be PC.

al Shabab "fighters" is what Al Jazeera is calling them.

Have to be PC you know, otherwise you might get beheaded or called a racist.
