Isn’t it funny how all these mainstream media “mistakes” run in exactly the same direction. They never, ever seem to make a mistake that falsely portray Muslims as perpetrators and non-Muslims as victims. The Washington Post did the same thing as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution does here. This kind of thing shows how the state press keeps the lemmings in line.
“Atlanta Journal-Constitution Falsely Claims Detroit Muslim ‘Targeted Muslims,’” by Warner Todd Huston, Breitbart, February 19, 2015:
On Tuesday news went national of a Muslim man who was arrested in Detroit for stabbing two non-Muslims at a bus stop after asking their religion. But the next day the Atlanta Journal-Constitution falsely claimed that the “attacker targeted Muslims” when in fact it was a Muslim who targeted two non-Muslims.
This false headline appears in the February 18 hard copy issue of the AJC–but not on the Internet. It was on page A6 in a section titled “In Brief” where the AJC posted a single paragraph brief on the arrest of Terrence Lavaron Thomas, the Michigan man who was accused of accosting two strangers at a Detroit bus stop. Thomas was arrested for stabbing the two after demanding they tell him if they were Muslims and then finding out they were not.
While the AJC had the correct facts in its short story, it’s [sic] headline was 180 degrees out of phase, saying, “Attacker allegedly targeted Muslims.”
This, of course, is entirely backwards. It was a Muslim who targeted non-Muslims….
