    @Draculya yeah media watch is a good idea aye.

    @Jake Justus, this style of reporting is used around the globe, only rarely do you get to see the other angle.

    For what it matters, the Media goes out of its way to "protect" the sensibility of Muslims. You will often read articles that don`t mention the world Muslim or immigrant where it might be relevant. To use one example, this was true in some riots in Sweden earlier in the year, where they called them "Swedish youth riots", but all the youth happened to be from immigrant families.

    @MrOrange, in that case, they may use the term "thug" or "idiot", but the gist is the same - they`re trying to get a rise out of him to have a news story. Most people just keep walking and don`t engage, if they`re smart.

    This is such a non-story. "News Media Sensationalizes the News!" Wow, what a scandal! The only reason this guy takes the time to point it out is that these are Muslims, the only overly-protected group left out there other than Communists and Barack Obama (oops, sorry to be redundant).

    Thankfully we still have news shows like this in the World that can show the truth behind the media machine. Typical Conservative B.S. to provoke someone, call them a terrorist and then show them as evil when they fight back. If the right wing media wasn`t putting a spin on things like this, image how normal and everyday regular Muslims would seem?

    Nice to see someone showing how it is done. It is indeed so common as to be not noteworthy - apart from the fact that the editing done ends up grossly misrepresenting the truth, and sadly many people believe what they are shown after the final edit...

    Ah yes, Journalists. Just slightly higher than Lawyers on the "Scum Scale" as far as I`m concerned.

    "Tell me, are you still beating your wife?": First question of journalism school, there`s no right answer. Wankers.

    patchouly: "Typical Conservative B.S. to provoke someone.."

    Assuming a bit much aren`t you? That was a local news crew and YOU assume they are "Conservative" just because they provoked them?

    As Davy said, the first lesson of journalism school is to ask asinine questions to provoke a reaction.

    Btw, most journalists are liberals. And I`ve heard quite a lot of really disgusting accusatory questions from liberal journalists over the years.
