Earlier, I noted how the mainstream media has a tendency to leave certain details out when those details don’t fit the narrative. For instance, if a liberal Democrat is caught doing something wrong, the party affiliation is often omitted. But if it’s a Republican, the [R] is never too far from the culprit’s name.
Well, the media is not alone when it comes to selective omission. Apparently, some in the military have been bitten by the “politically correct” bug:
- Terrorism? Fort Hood report doesn’t mention Islamic extremism.
- The Fort Hood Report: Why No Mention of Islam?
I have to tell you, I was not surprised that The Christian Science Monitor covered this issue. But was shocked that TIME magazine had the guts to publish a similar article.
