Why Has the Press Underreported/Not Reported Terrorist Attacks?

    Sychophantasticposted 6 weeks ago

    The White House provided a list of 78 terror attacks that it said the media had underreported or not reported. President Trump has told us that the media, for its own reasons, is not reporting these attacks. Some of those attacks include:

    truck attacks in Nice, France
    Paris, France (where apparently over 100 people died)
    an Orlando nightclub shooting
    an attack at the Brussels airport
    a shooting in San Bernardino

    And then there was Kellyanne Conway's mention of the Bowling Green massacre. In fact, she's mentioned this incident twice in the past few months.

    Have any of you heard of these attacks? I certainly have not, which obviously proves President Trump correct. These attacks happened and the media doesn't want us to know about them or wants to pretend like they weren't the work of radical Islamic terrorists.

    What do you think?

      I certainly remember the Little Bowling Green Men Massacre. And the shocking incident of a man speaking Arabic on a plane.

        Why would the media want to keep these things from their viewers? Are they afraid that if they call out terrorism when they see it, they will be providing support for an immigration ban?

          Last week a CNN reporter was seen drinking Turkish coffee. Turkish coffee, think about it. It is pretty clear that all American mainstream reporters are ISIS sleeper agents.

          The media didn't report on that tornado that killed ten thousand people in one Kansas town. Its amazing since that was more killed than all the tornados in recorded history combined, I believe. If obama hadnt reported it we still wouldnt know.

      I personally witnessed the Bowling Green massacre and barely escaped with my life. Fortunately, I know kung fu from watching movies and was able to take out three of the terrorists.

      I think the "truck attacks in Nice, France" reporting was the most ridiculous.  MSM hasn't wanted to say Islamic terrorist...that time they really showed how stupid they think their audience is. 

      A freaking truck attacked those innocent people in Nice, France!  Despicable!  Next they are going to say we need to ban all trucks?

      When its an Islamic terrorist it should be report as that, not covered up as something else.  A truck, my elbow!

      That isn't reporting..its BS.

        The truck attacks - I remember them well, they were certainly widely reported in Europe, the UK, Australia and New Zealand at the time. 

        It's policy, and a good one, not to label ANY attack as a terrorist attack until they know who did it.  Because labelling it as terrorist if it's not, will only make people panic.  In the case of the truck attacks, it was a terrorist attack although they're still not sure whether he was a lone wolf or part of a bigger group.

        I was aware of every single one of the so-called unreported attacks and can remember the reporting clearly.  I suspect the Americans who can't remember, are the kind of people who don't pay much attention to news outside America at the best of time, and therefore didn't pay attention to the reports. That's all.

      The "Pravda "American news  media simply parrots the elitist Obama legacy , they are selling traditional America down the toilet  , the left that has invested so heavily into the media  that has an agenda to tear American values apart at the seams and for what ? 

      But hey , Hillary is now Tweeting like Trump  !      There is hope for the left's future ...........?

        Michael Moore made an oscar winning documentary called Bowling for Columbine all about Bowling Green massacre.

        Don't think there is a clear documentary about the history of Yahweh/Christians unless you included dinosaurs and Flintstones.

        Back to living in the now. Killing for Jesus is the largest cause of murder, even though Jesus says it is a sin, Could not live a lie myself. Or live like a hypocrites and follow Trump type of Christians vs Muslims.

        Live and let live, all in all another brick in the wall, leave those Muslims and Latinos alone.

      Real Americans would take these accusations more seriously. This is our safety, after all. Liberals took everything coming from the Obama White House as gospel and parroted it endlessly. This information is coming directly from the Trump White House and deserves to be taken seriously. The media are covering up terrorist attacks and limiting their coverage. They're trying to make America seem a lot safer than it really is.

            I'm both liberals and conservative why would I fight with himself. You can climb into bed with a Christian nation with your hate/love relationship while they hate you more. Atheist have most Religious knowledge of any group and they registered as a Religion in America.

            I'm spiritual rather than Religious, all for one one for all, it can't happen in fairytales of politics or Religious. Better possibility with indigenous for healthy mind and body.

            America just ignores real bio organisms as each of us are earthlings first. America has chosen a greedy Synthetic world over a green world.

            Bolivia area has the highest indigenous population in both north and south American. They are ghe true masters of bio organisms society they are my people, not zombie/robot land.

            Good thing you live in the country with your feet on the grass more than in a concrete jungle.

        Luckily, I ain't even an unreal American so I will not have to live with the fallout of a government working in a fantasy world of ideological 'truths' rather than views based on the available facts.

        'Course, when the missiles start flying over my head (the South China sea is not far from me) I may get some fall out that I was not expecting, lol.

        The media also covered up the Bowling Green, Atlanta and Toledo massacres. They really need to be stopped.

          How did the media cover up the massacre, by not making up BS like Conway. and Trump did. Or use a ban and to create another false flag to attack Muslims countries for their oil.

    This is ridiculous.
    It's a paranoid fantasy to believe such bs.
    Trying to control or demonize the press is a megalomaniacs ploy to become a dictator.
    Likewise trying to demonize the law and courts.

    If you are afraid this statement might be true, do this:  Read a major city newspaper, watch more than on major network TV news, read a national weekly newsmagazine, then decide on the validity of news coverage.  Don't do this: Read blogs, listen to cable radio, watch only one TV network, read tweets.  See how much better informed you are.

      From being in the arts and entertainment business, have watched multi media De-evolved the last 40 years based on too much nonsense. There are some online networks that do make a good deal of sense with filming directly to what is really happening, not like the vast majority whitewashed mainstream media.

    The mainstream news media in America is totally twisted out of shape -It is  "Face Book " news media .AND      Todays major outlets of" Fake News " is at fault for the political atmosphere now.

    An anchor on CNN just had a major on air meltdown  about the use of the term "Fake News " anybody see that one ?
    Classic !

      The fake news industry was begun by climate change opponents. CNN is not fake news. It may have a bias, but if you don't understand the difference between that and fake, you are the one being duped.
