What does a murderous jihadist terrorist have to do to get some recognition for his cause? You hack a British soldier to death in broad daylight on a London street while shouting "Allahu akbar" and then "swear by the almighty Allah" that you'll never stop fighting, and the U.S. broadcast networks still can't bring themselves to utter a word about Islam.
True, the ABC CBS and NBC evening broadcasts called the attack "terrorism," but for all the information they gave viewers, the attackers might have been Basque separatists or animal rights zealots.
On "Nightly News" NBC anchor Brian Williams said the attackers allowed "people to take video while they vent their message about religion and politics." Correspondent Michelle Kosinski said one of the attackers "made a long political statement, weapons still in his blood-covered hands."
