You mean why does CNN not amplify something you found on the Breitbart black/Muslim/immigrant crime section?

Muslim Terror Attacks Get 357 Percent More Media Coverage Than Those by Other Groups: Study

Quote:
In a study published in Justice Quarterly, researchers at Georgia State University and the University of Alabama found that terror attacks by Muslims receive an average of 357 percent more media coverage than those by other groups.

Not good enough you want it higher?

So you have things like 9/11 and the Boston bombing etc. compared to things like a pro-choicer letter bombing pro-lifers and a black man shooting white cops as revenge for cops shooting black men.

Hardly surprising when Islamic terrorists court publicity.

I suppose it's a shocker the NZ shooting is in the news a lot after it was livestreamed (which I guess wouldn't be classed as a terror attack if in the US either - all so confusing ).

Re: Official MSNBC/Fox/CNN/cable news containment thread

Why do you care though? If you're interested in bias in reporting its a bit odd to start with something so ill defined as coverage levels of terrorist attacks. The fact that you approached the topic in the manner you did makes your motivations entirely suspect.

The study period was between 2006 and 2015, so "like 9/11" doesn't cut it. The study also used the Global Terrorism Database which includes the Dylann Roof shooting and the study actively references the Roof shooting in its final report so "apparently incidents like Dylann Roof's shooting aren't classed as terror attacks" also doesn't cut it.

The report also claims that if they excluded high profile attacks such as Fort Hood and the Boston Marathon that their findings were actually strengthened (pg 24) so "you have things like the Boston bombing compared to things like a pro-choicer letter bombing pro lifers" also just doesn't cut it.

Except both resulted in 5 deaths and your own article says number of deaths is a huge factor. In your time frame:

13 islamic
6 unknown motive
14 islamic
6 white supremacist killed sikhs
5 islamic
5 islamic
5 black man killed white cops

And you can add Dylann Roof for 9 as that was 2015.

The four non-islamic attacks are also all lone wolf attacks so that's four people vs a global network.

Interesting. So what’s the explanation for all this?

This is all both very funny and not a little sad. You first claim a news station (and others) are "covering up" a story despite them subsequently covering it and the story being widely available in other national outlets since it occurred. You then claim that the study provided by Rep will not cite incidents like Dylann Roof when it explicitly does and will include incidents like 9/11 when it doesn't. You go on to assert that they only get their results because the Boston Marathon is being compared to some letter bombs despite them saying that specifically excluding events like the Boston Marathon strengthens their results. Literally all your initial claims have been shown to be untrue.

To add to this you now make two broader claims - 1: that the results of the study failed to control for number of deaths and 2: that when drawing its conclusions the study failed to discern between lone wolf attacks and the fruits of global terror networks. Lets go to the tape:

1. And you needn't have gone further than the study's abstract

Quote:
Controlling for target type, fatalities, and being arrested, attacks by Muslim perpetrators received, on average, 357% more coverage than other attacks
2. You had to look a bit further here (pg 26):

Quote:
Surprisingly and contradicting previous scholarship (Weimann & Brosius, 1991; Weimann & Winn, 1994), there was no difference in the amount of coverage for attacks connected to a larger group versus those without this connection. While attacks connected to larger groups automatically have name recognition, our results show that this does not drive coverage.
Now I'm sure you can eventually find some real weaknesses in this study's methodology and interpretation of the data, but that's not really the issue. What's most illuminating is that you move to dismiss the study based on outright fabrication of its content and only then move to more nuanced (but still largely incorrect) criticisms once the ineptitude of your initial responses are revealed.

Trump fans are openly coordinating terror attacks on message boards, but some of them are chin incels and some are wrist incels so it's unfair to paint them as a singular terror network

That all kinds of arguments could be made about substantial groups of Americans being slaves since black people could no longer be publically owned, is of no importance.

I am sure we will never see another major upheaval where one side of the country digs in extreme views, the other half capitulates and massively compromises and it is still not enough.

Obviously they are two of the WOAT people. I was curious what the hell Dinesh means by "What happens to her? She is kicked out of journalism." The clip doesn't explain it.
