If you want to see a textbook example of the media deliberately slanting a story, follow what's going with this

Only an idiot looking for confirmation bias would assume that tweet is purposefully misleading.

What's AP's intent when they tell you "he hates white people"?

He said "Allahu Akbar", which literally translates to "God is great".

I for one am OUTRAGED that the AP translated what the terrorist said!

You're shitting me.

The dude wasn't speaking Arabic. If he'd have said "I'm from Las Angeles, assholes" they wouldn't have translated Las Angeles.

He was speaking English and threw an arabic phrase in there. The AP put direct quotations around a statement that was not a direct quote.

You really don't think that was purposefully misleading? C'mon...

I love it when people make themselves look like idiots by playing along like this stuff is normal.

Excellent idea, TJ. Here is a great example of purposeful media bias:

https://www.infowars.com/pizzagate-is-global/

Believe it or not, there is a regular poster on this forum who bought into the whole bullshit Pizzagate theory: hook, line, and sinker. He even started at least one thread about it, and he told us over and over again that it's a true story, and that even Hillary Clinton was involved in the child sex trade.

Of course, that poster is a 9/11 conspiracy theorist nut, and he has a history of being extremely gullible.

No, i don't. I'll ask you the same question, if they're trying to make him sound softer, or "less arabic", why would they also state that he hates white people?

Seems to go against your idea that they're trying to hide what he is. On top of that, they include a link to the story that spells it out in full for you.

Are you to have me believe that people are so ****ing stupid in 2017 that they don't understand the term "God is great" and what it translates to?

Does every tiny thing have to be spelled out, and everyone needs their hand held to figure this out?

To me it's pretty ****ing obvious. Christians don't go around saying that shit and murdering white people.

At what point to we apply common sense and stop acting like we need everything spelled out for us?

It was pretty ****ing clear to me. /shrug

And your example sucks. Do we incorrectly spell out everyone's dialect in newsprint?

Good god, imagine what it'd be like reading a Jamaal Charles interview...

Your exact same position can be turned on its head, no? You're the one saying we don't need it spelled out for us yet you're defending the AP 'translating' 2 words from a quote that was otherwise entirely in English?

No - it doesn't need to be spelled out; it just needs to be...I dunno...quoted. And this wasn't a quote. At all.

You ask what their purpose in including 'hates white people' in their quote would be when the same question should be answered by you - what's the purpose of translating 2 words if, as you say, we 'don't need everything spelled out for us...'.

It's simple - they're trying to blunt the initial impact. Poorly, to be fair, but it's still what they're trying to do.
