Terrorism and terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe
have “gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported.”
— Donald Trump on Monday, February 6th, 2017
I was surprised by that, since MSM exists to publicize things like terrorism, mass murder - except of course, for the massacre of Christians in the Middle East and Africa. So what was Trump talking about? The Bowling Green Massacre?
Later in the day, I came across a comment on Charlotte Was Both that may answer my question. The post is about narratives - the narrative we are told, and pretty much the narratives we invent and retell - kinda, sorta. Within his comment, Bill Bannon mentioned that:
There’s been 145 terror murders in the US in 50 incidents since 9/11 and the media never reports the host of small ones in that figure…local papers probably do…two decapitations never reported in big media because it counters their pretty picture narrative. - BB"That's it!" I thought. That must be what Trump meant when he said, it's “gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported.”
I think I feel better about Trump now.
