London terrorist was an Islamic radical, but news outlets downplay or hide that info
by Dan Gainor
The whole world now knows that the London terrorist was an Islamist radical, but news outlets are downplaying it or hiding the information, especially on the internet. While ABC and CBS evening news shows Thursday admitted the attacker was Islamic, only NBCNews.com showed any prominent connection of the Big Three's websites.
Oddly, it was "NBC Nightly News" that linked the attacker to ISIS, but never said "Islam" or "Muslim." Chief global correspondent Bill Neely undermined that connection, saying of terrorist Khalid Masood, "ISIS propaganda calling him their fighter but no evidence."
NBCNews.com was more honest, writing on its front page: "London Attacker Was Born 'Adrian Russell Ajao,' Was Reportedly Muslim Convert." Interestingly, the headline on the story itself made no mention of the Muslim connection.
