At least 70 people were blown to bits and 100s more wounded at a hospital in Pakistan by ISIL in an attempt to disrupt trade to China. Why is this not major news in the American media?
The media is biased.
The religion of peace strikes again!✌️
Because the Libtards in the media don't want us to know that MUSLIMS are killing people left and right...they only "report" stories where they can twist the facts to make it seem that it was a "lone wolf" (which is bullshit btw)
Must be a living caricature of a far-right conservative
The term you're looking for is patriotic American. You're just a Communist.
Yup, good-ole patriotic southern Protestant Christian white American. I'm just a dirty olive-skinned communist.
Well I know you're Communist... Duh 🙄
So you're saying that the media covers undeniable terrorist attacks more than "questionable" ones?
Apparently. I only own Karl Marx publications. Vlad Lenin is Russian Jesus. Let's be comrades?
You really suck at being a troll
And you own a worn out copy of Rules for Radicals...
Cuz I'm not. I don't usually enjoy wasting my time with xenophobes and other moronic trolls, but I was bored.
Man, you really believed I own Karl Marx literature...
I don't make shit up like Hillary does, I state facts...and the facts are that there are Muslims who are killing innocent people; now, does that mean that all Muslims are bad people, of course not...no one has said that, not Trump or any true conservatives or Christians...but, facts are facts and the only way to weed out that bad people is to screen everyone and profile everyone to find bad people...it's for the good of the people
The good of the people....are you a communist?
So why did you attack Christians for an Islamic terrorist attack?
And whites? Are you a racist too?
Because sadly it's a COMMON OCCURRENCE they happen all the time in those kinds of countries and we never report them it's just not new news which is UNFORTUNATE but it's the reality. ALSO it's clouded by dumb Shit that trump or Hillary MOSTLY TRUMP constantly say so there's another reason
I've been avoiding the news lately
Lib media outlets don't want the public to know!
Because Trump said something inflammatory about Hillary, and it would feed Trumps narative that the Obama administration and a Hillary administration is light on military strategy. It also demonstrates foreign policy failures of the Obama administration. He tried for years to get Pakistan to take the fight with Afghan terrorists seriously.
What? What does a lawyer, being shot dead one day and the next all of his friends and family just coming to pay their respects being blown to bits have to do with Trump and Hillary? What the actual fuck, dude.
The question was why isn't the media covering it. I am suggesting the media isn't coving it because ISIL in Pakistan helps Trump's campaign and hurts Hillary's.
And the Olympics.
Are fucking serious right now!? Barry Soetoro is the fucking President. WTF!?
Islam is the religion of love.
The olympics, also it's in one of those countries where it's viewed as the normal course of daily life.
Cause it wasn't a mass murder with guns. It was just a bomb in a place no one cares about
It's so common in the area ! There is seriously an ISIL attack in the Middle East almost everyday! That's not news!
I meant new news
Maybe it's because most of the victims were lawyers. Nobody likes those fuckers.
That's worthy of a poll, right there. ISIS or lawyers.
A terrorist attack in the Middle East? Could you pass the salt please?
Because it's Pakistan.
To disrupt trade with China? Then let's see what the Chinese do here.
Because it didn't happen in an important western nation, just a lowly Arab place. (Of course I'm just being facetious in my racism)
But you have a point. We can't get press into Pakistan to cover something like that. So it seems like it doesn't matter.
True but the attack was targeted toward disrupting international trade. Not just one crazy Islamists wanting to blow up people for Allah.
I wonder if people are going to start putting the Pakistani flag over their profile pics on Facebook to act like they care. (Not likely)
The media hasn't told them too...
I agree that the lack of *massive* coverage (as we've had with incidents in France, for example) has to do with it being (a) a more common occurrence in some countries (not just Pakistan, but the same thing happens with coverage of atrocities in troubled African countries as well), (b) it happening "not here," and (c) it happening in a non-majority-white country. Those reasons are sad to varying degrees, but especially the last one.
But really, if every atrocity were covered to the same degree as some recent events in France, our news would be overwhelmed.
That's true. Barry is too busy golfing to care, Hillary would have a seizure if she was asked too many questions and Trump would turn the hospital into a casino.
Obama + Clinton + Trump =/= American media.
No. Has any so-called journalist asked Barry about the bombing? No? Ok.
I see stories about it on AP, Reuters, Fox, CNN, ABC, CBC, NBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the BBC, and many other news sources. What else do you want?
"Major news" Not a drive-by.
U mean major, as in "all day blanket coverage" like in France?
Or at least have one of the members of the "journalists" ask Barry about it while he's out playing golf.
State run media 🙈🙉🙊
Doesn't fit the narrative that Obamas policies are working and we should vote for four more years of it.
Some JV team, huh? 🙄
