Media Underreports Army Recruiting Center Murder

Posted: Jun 02, 2009 2:21 PM

I'd only just read today the scary story out of Middle America involving the seemingly politically-motivated killing of a law-abiding citizen.

No, I'm not talking about the murder of George Tiller, I'm talking about the underreported shooting at an Army Recruiting Office that Greg blogged about yesterday.

In the midst of watching the hysterics fly on various MSM platforms yesterday over the Tiller murder, this story seemed to get lost in the shuffle. Why aren't media outlets condemning Code Pink and Berkeley public officials and various campus organizations across the country for creating a hostile environment for military recruiters?

These are two sad incidents in which innocent Americans were murdered and the perpetrators deserve condemnation. Neither should speak to an inherent violence of either the pro-life movement or anti-war movement. But the mainstream media's double standard is showing.
