Trump’s list of ignored terror attacks “includes widely reported terror attacks”, it also includes ignored terror attacks…

OK, good headline, let’s read the story…

It also included many strikes overseas that received limited media attention in the U.S., including killings in Dhaka, Bangladesh; Parramatta, Australia; and Zvornik, Bosnia.

The White House said “most” of the attacks on the list haven’t received adequate coverage, explaining it included both well-known and lesser-known strikes to illustrate the frequency with which they occur.

“Since ISIS declared its caliphate, there has been a major attack targeting the West executed or inspired by the group more than once every two weeks,” the White House said.

Officials distributed the list to reporters hours after Trump accused the news media of downplaying coverage of terrorist attacks directed or inspired by ISIS.

“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” Trump said at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla. “And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it.”

Also, we can’t ignore that the reasoning for all these attacks are constantly downplayed by the media.

The president implied journalists have ulterior motives for burying coverage of the threat posed by terrorist groups. “They have their reasons, and you understand that,” he said.
