New: Name That Religion.
In an article named, ironically, "Ahmad Khan Rahami: What we know about the bombing suspect," reporter Catherine E. Shoichet of CNN does not mention what religion Rahami is.
Not until Paragraph 16 does the word "Muslim" even appear, and even then is it in as sympathetic way as possible:
The Rahami family alleged discrimination and harassment in a lawsuit filed against the city and its police department in 2011, arguing that officials conspired against them by subjecting them to citations for allegedly violating a city ordinance on hours of operation. The suit alleged that police officers and city representatives had said "the restaurant presented a danger to the community." It also accused a neighboring business owner of saying, "Muslims make too much trouble in this country" and "Muslims don't belong here." The defendants, including police officers and city officials, denied the allegations.The first question about any bombing in the United States is whether the terrorist is a Muslim.
The default answer is yes.
Far from helping end discrimination against Muslims, this feeds it by showing a pro-Muslim bias in the news media.
For shame. This only undercuts the media's credibility.
My new book, "Trump the Press," is a fun read that details how the experts missed the rise of Trump. Remember how they said Trump was just running to help Hillary? Read the reviews in the right column.
