NYT Skips That Boko Haram Targeted Girls Because They Were Christians

April 11th, 2018 10:06 PM
The New York Times has published an April 11 article about over a hundred of the women who were kidnapped as girls by Boko Haram in Nigeria in 2014 and who have subsequently been returned.

July 21st, 2014 2:44 PM
Dear Guardian, thanks for making this easy! Rarely are a media outlet’s prejudices and blinkered sense of moral equivalence more in evidence than in two stories on the left-wing British newspaper’s site. Exhibit A: A 461-word July 19 story picked up from the AP. Boko Haram killed more than 100 people when the Islamist group entered a town in North Eastern Nigeria on July 20. They “attacked…

ABC, NBC Reluctant to Name Nigerian Kidnappers as Muslim

June 16th, 2014 10:32 AM
Well, ABC and NBC are acting to type, ever reluctant to call evil by its name when doing so is politically incorrect (and possibly dangerous). Consider both networks’ reporting on the story of the school girls kidnapped last month in Nigeria, and a second, smaller group kidnapped last week.

May 8th, 2014 11:10 AM
Despite Hillary Clinton's current condemnation of Boko Haram for kidnapping hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls, when she had a chance as Secretary of State to designate it as a Foreign Terrorist Organization she failed to do so as reported by the Daily Beast.

May 1st, 2014 4:38 PM
ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning and evening newscasts have yet to set aside any air time to a mass abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from a school in northern Nigeria on April 16, 2014.
