As the media dodges terrorism in its reporting they even blame Trump for calling a bombing a bombing!
The media dodges terrorism even though that is obviously what is going on. First, there were the bombs in the New York City area.
Then, there was the mall stabbing in Michigan.
According to the Wall Street Journal,
Investigators are treating the explosion as an “intentional act,” and while they haven’t ruled out terrorism, weren’t willing to label the explosion as a terrorist act until authorities had a better idea of a motive, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
“We know there was a bombing. We know it’s a very serious incident. But we have a lot more work to do to say what kind of motivation was behind this,” he said.
The article tells us the “work” is being done by “counterterrorism agents.” Plainly, de Blasio knows that a plain acknowledgment of a terrorist attack will not help the Democrat presidential candidate.
It gets worse.
Breitbart.com reported on an exchange between Hillary Clinton and a campaign reporter:
Reporter: Secretary Clinton, Do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump, immediately upon taking the stage tonight, called the explosion in New York a “bomb” … ?
Clinton: Well, I think it’s important to know the facts about any incident like this. That’s why it’s critical to support the first responders, the investigators who are looking into it, trying to determine what did happen.
But Hillary herself had described the incidents in the same way. In fact, seconds earlier she had told the reporters, “I’ve been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey, and the attack in Minnesota.” Donald Trump did nothing even mildly noteworthy or different. The Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) can’t stand that he is right about terrorism and are doing all they can to divert attention away from his accuracy.
