In reviewing most of the Mainstream Media headlines regarding the Nairobi Mall attack in Kenya, most if not all seemed to shy away from inserting the more descriptive words involving who was responsible for the attack.
Fox News did publish one account accurately representing "Al Qaeda linked" in the headlines.
Further, the word "gun" appeared only in the NY Times and Reuters headlines. Below is the gist of the article from Fox:
Dozens of hostages are being held in an upscale shopping mall in Kenya's capital following an attack by suspected members of an Al Qaeda-linked Somali militant group on Saturday that left at least 59 dead and 175 injured.
There are between 50 to 200 hostages and most of them are hiding in various places inside the mall, Fox News confirms. They are not being held by the hostage-takers. There are between 10 to 15 militants currently inside the mall, with at least one being female.
Somalia's Al Qaeda-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the Saturday attack in which they used grenades and assault rifles and specifically targeted non-Muslims. The rebels said the attack was retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into Somalia and threatened more attacks.
The Mainstream Media’s attempt at political correctness, in not immediately reporting who is mostly responsible for such deadly attacks, represents a media seeking to soften the effects of violent Islamist-Extremism, despite a world increasingly embroiled in the religion's legacy of mayhem.
