Media balance

media_balanceAfter a knife attack at a school in Sweden, the media (in particular the ABC) wasted little time in ascribing the motives to ‘far-right extremism’, despite there being scant evidence at this point to back it up.

Compare and contrast with the vicious shooting of Curtis Cheng, carried out by a black-robed Muslim who had just left a mosque after Friday prayers and shot an infidel in the head whilst shouting ‘Allahu akbar’, where avoiding mentioning ‘Muslim’ and ‘Islam’ and called the act ‘political’ and then scratched their heads for days, desperately searching for a motive that was staring them in the face, whilst cautioning everyone not to rush to snap judgments.

There’s media balance for you – what a joke.
