‘Fill-in-the-blank’ news report on honor killing

Jim Brown – OneNewsNow –

CNN recently aired a news report featuring a woman in the United Kingdom who was kidnapped, tortured, raped, and murdered at the order of her Muslim father. Although the CNN segment documented the rise of what are called “honor killings” in the U.K., reporter Paula Newton not once used the words “Muslim” or “Islam” in the story.
Seton Motley, director of communications for the Media Research Center (MRC), says the CNN report was “politically correct on stilts.”
“Clearly the fundamental element in this story is the person who did this honor killing,” states Motley. “How can you talk about honor killings without mentioning Islam?” he asks, “because that’s where it happens.”
The MRC spokesman points out there are no honor killings in Judaism or Christianity — certainly not to the degree that it is in Islam. “So you’re really not reporting the story intentionally if you leave that out,” he argues.
Motley remarks that if one is looking for a more politically correct entity than the major media in the U.S., he suggests visiting a college campus.
