The media always misses the big stories of historic proportion. Only years later do they reluctantly admit it.

Here are some examples of globally-significant stories that the anti-Christian mainstream media deliberately lost in the shuffle. The stories have to do with events in Egypt during the last few years—events that I am very familiar with.

It is impossible to ascertain whether they refuse to report these stories because of their anti-Christian bias, or because the stories run contrary to the narrative propagated by the current White House. Either way, the omissions are no accident.

The Egyptian Revolution of January 2011 was fully covered—every media outlet had reporters on the ground in Tahrir Square. It was a story that executive producers in New York and London could embrace with gusto: Masses of people demonstrating against a secular dictator.

The White House believed that Mubarak should be replaced by an Islamist, and the media fell right in line. The State Department had long felt that an Islamist government was inevitable, so they might as well support it now by supporting the uprising. Even the European Union, to pacify its burgeoning Islamist population, got on the bandwagon.

But we all know the results now:

§ The Obama Administration got its wish and Mubarak resigned.

§ An Islamist, Mohamed Morsi, ran for president, even though he was in prison at the time of the revolution and illegally broke out.

§ Through a series of campaign lies, Morsi was elected, despite only receiving 11 million votes out of a population of 90 million.

§ The Muslim Brotherhood members who advised President Obama propagated a message of “democracy in our time” to the Western media.

§ The media ran with the story: “The First Democratically Elected President in Egyptian History.” That sounded good to the uninformed.

Then soon after Morsi get into office, he declared himself a dictator and above the law. Did we hear even the softest grumble of opposition from the White House or other Western capitals? No, not a word.

Within twelve months of Morsi’s reign, Egypt was brought to its knees economically, socially, and politically. A result far more disastrous than anything its secular predecessor could have possibly accomplished.

But the media covered up that disaster. Why? It didn’t fit the narrative. The White House and its aligned media executives believed Islamists would be good for Egypt and good for the Middle East.
