Big Dan's Big News Nov 7, 2009

All over the news, they broadcast the Fort Hood shooter's religion, but not the religion of the Orlando shooter. Why is this? It's because the Fort Hood shooter was Muslim and the Orlando shooter was not. No one can argue this. So, why does the media have a proven track record of only broadcasting a shooter's religion only if it's Muslim? You're witnessing this yourself right now, and this cannot be argued. What's the religion of the Orlando shooter? Why won't Fox News confirm whether Orlando shooter is Christian? What's the religion of Dr. Tiller's shooter? What's the religion of Jim David Adkisson who shot "liberals" at a Knoxville, TN Unitarian Church in July of 2008? Here's a headline you won't be seeing soon: "Christian opens fire on people in Orlando" or "Jew opens fire on people in Orlando". If it's a Muslim, that is the only time you will hear a person's religion in the headline. Why are we conditioned by the media to be "OK" with a headline: "Muslim opens fire at Fort Hood"? Would you find this headline offensive: "Jew Paul Wolfowitz architected the Iraq War in which we're hemorrhaging $3 billion tax dollars a week and people are dying daily"?
