New York Times Can’t Figure Out ‘What Led Salman Abedi to Bomb the Manchester Arena’

In an attempt to build up its already "We'll never really know why they did it" file relating to Islamist radicals who have taken innocent lives, three reporters at The New York Times composed a 1,900-word report Saturday evening (for Sunday's print edition) about Manchester bomber Salman Abedi's family background. The reporters provided very little hard information about Abedi's motivations, despite the fact that readers who saw the paper's tweet which promoted the article were led to expect it: "What led Salman Abedi to bomb the Manchester arena?" But they did push hard the news that Abedi called his mom before he carried the attack.

CNN’s Hosts CAIR to Blame Trump for Anti-Muslim Violence in Oregon

IBRAHIM HOOPER, CAIR: I think this is just rep of unfort of the overall rise in bigotry in our nation within the last months and the year partic curing teh presid campaign and since the elctin in November. we've seen minorities increasingly targeted with violence and hate speech. American Muslims have been targeted. Mosques have been targeted but also African-Americans, Hispanics, refugees, immigrants.

CBS Bizarrely Frets Over New Laws to Protect Police from ‘Hate Crimes’

On CBS This Morning Saturday, as the show covered proposed new laws to protect police officers from hate crimes, correspondent Tony Dokoupil and anchors Alex Wagner and Anthony Mason all oddly seemed to worry about whether it was appropriate to call it a "hate crime" to attack a police officer. During the report, Dokoupil even asked if the term "hate crime" would be "cheapened" if police offers came under hate crime protection. And in a short discussion after the pre-recorded piece concluded, after Wagner mused, "It really calls into question the definition of 'hate crime' and bigotry," Dokoupil injected: "It can be a hateful act, and yet not a hate crime."

NY Times Poses Muslim ‘Feminist’ Sarsour as Target of Right-Wing Hate, But Skips Her Own Hate

Muslim “feminist” Linda Sarsour has gotten criticism from conservatives for her vulgar, sexist, intolerant remarks about Muslim apostate Ayaan Hirsi Ali (still the target of death threats), as well as her blandished descriptions of Sharia law and public appearances with convicted terrorists. Eli Rosenberg profiled her before her controversial commencement address at the City University of New York, slated for June 1. The Times went all out to make her a martyr: “A Graduation Speaker Raises Ire Before Taking the Podium — Threats and Messages of Hatred Flow As Sarsour Plans to Speak at CUNY." The caption under a flattering photo of Sarsour: “Linda Sarsour said she became a target of far-right conservatives after the Women’s March. ‘I’m everything they stand against,’ she said.”

Andrew Sullivan: Trump a ‘Monster’ Whose Beliefs Are ‘The Antithesis of Christianity’

“Between Donald Trump and anything resembling Christianity,” there is only a great void — a “vast, empty, and dark space,” declared gay Catholic pundit Sullivan in a Friday column for New York magazine. Sullivan described Trump as “neither religious nor irreligious. He is pre-religious. He is a pagan. He makes much more sense as a character in Game of Thrones, a medieval world bereft of the legacy of Jesus of Nazareth, than as a president of a modern, Western country…I will never understand how more than half of white Catholics could vote for such a man, or how the leadership of the church could be so terribly silent when such a monster stalks the earth.”

CNN Claims Kushner Was ‘Treacherous,’ Later Admit He’s Not a Target
