Two terror attacks occurred Oct. 22. Both resulted in multiple casualties, and in each case, one innocent was killed. Both were the work of young Islamic men. But, while the network opened up their evening news broadcasts with one of the incidents, they completely ignored the other.
The leading story of the night was the attack on the Canadian Parliament building and the War Memorial in Ottawa. A shooter who was described as a recent convert to Islam went on a rampage first killing a soldier guarding a war memorial, before the man hijacked a car, drove to the parliament building and began shooting there. Police eventually shot and killed him.
The networks rightly gave the Canadian terror attack story plenty of attention. Yet none of the evening news broadcasts mentioned an attack that occurred at the same time in Jerusalem.
