Raise your hand if you think a man who hates white people, who randomly shot 3 people, and shouted "God is Great" is anything other than a Muslim?

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.
You could have just posted this link:

You have to bracket shit if you're going to do a direct quote but change it for the readers sake.

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.
OOOOR.....you're seeing intent that isn't there.

Everything written in the linked article, as well as the choice words in the tweet, contradict your claim.

This is a case of latching onto two words and ignoring EVERYTHING else and saying, "see, they're biased".

It's ridiculous and petty.

Wanna see bias? Read that shit JPB posted. That's REAL slant.

Obviously pictures are exaggerated for LOL but the Trayvon Martin case was EXTREME in the use of pictures and even photoshop for altering the image of both parties.

as well as selective use of older photos (make TM look young) and jail photo of GZ as opposed to suit/tie etc..

totally ignoring facebook / social media gang style photos of TM..etc etc

My simple post, noting that you're being an idiot, has added more to this discussion than every one of your posts combined.

Then again, I'm not sure that you've added a single thing of value to the forum since election day.

I don't have time to read this thread. I am too busy reading stories on how the Russians cost Clinton the election.

When they get done connecting all the Russian dots to Trump....

I heard about this attack on the radio this afternoon. The newscaster called it a case of domestic terrorism. He reported the name of the man and it sounded middle eastern. He said that the man shouted "God is great" in arabic. And that was it. So I was left wondering if this guy was a Coptic Christian or one of those generally happy jews living in Syria that BEP tells us about.

Maybe they weren't sure of the guy's religion at the time of the newscast, I don't know. And to be fair they at least reported the guy's arabic name and the language he spoke. But it really stood out to me that they didn't identify the guy as a Muslim.

Edit: BTW, I think Taco is probably talking about the entire article, not just the tweet.

Why should he have to figure it out on his own? Would they have been that circumspect if the attacker had been a Christian or Jew?

Taco's example might not be the most extremely biased article ever written about an islamic terrorist, but the attacker's religion is an unmentioned elephant in the room AFAIC.
