I preferred the days when “British invasion” meant the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Now it’s dhimmi media — the BBC and the Guardian. This report does not explain how they will be bringing their own ingenious ways to ignore and downplay the Islamic jihad, but of course they will — along with, as this report does make clear, their reinforcement of the tired political divisions of today, despite the fact that both sides are increasingly proving themselves inadequate to meet this threat. “AIM Report: British Media Invade the U.S. – April A,” an Accuracy in Media Report by Jonathan Boyd Hunt:
