MRC’s Dan Gainor: AP Coverage of Muslim Shooter is ‘Propaganda’

Written by  Julia A. Seymour

MRC Vice President of Business and Culture Dan Gainor called out the media for downplaying an Islamic connection to a recent shooting in Fresno, California.

Kori Ali Muhammad, a black Muslim allegedly gunned down three white individuals and shouted “Allahu Akbar” when he was arrested.

However the Associated Press tweeted the phrase in English as “God is Great.” The story only admitted later the Arabic phrase was uttered and the gunman was Muslim.

Intelligence Report anchor Trish Regan asked Gainor on April 19, if this was “another example” of the media wanting to cover up certain issues.

Gainor told Fox Business Network viewers, “Of course it is. This is exactly what President Trump said when he said the media didn’t cover terrorism well. They cover it up, they don’t cover it. You look at how they’ve done this, whether it’s the alleged Muslim travel ban, they do everything that CAIR — the Council of American Islamic Relations does. It’s a pressure group, but ends up meaning that the media produce propaganda, not news.”

Regan asked why the media do this and he replied, “What they’ve done is turn a religion that has 1.6 billion people into a victim group.

The media, without Obama, continues the lie that Islam is a religion of peace and the" killer" [read, Islamic terrorist ] was mentality challenged. I take exception to describing a muslim as mentally challenged when it would appear the media is mentally challenged.
