Media Silence Surrounds Muslim Massacre of Christians | Breitbart https://t.co/VK6G3SsPDC via @BreitbartNews

The bizarre aspect of the coverage was not, in fact, the attention paid to a heinous crime committed in New Zealand, *but the absolute silence surrounding the simultaneous massacre of scores of Christians by Muslim militants in Africa.*

As Breitbart News alone reported among major news outlets, Fulani jihadists racked up a death toll of over 120 Christians over the past three weeks in central Nigeria, employing machetes and gunfire to slaughter men, women, and children, burning down over 140 houses, destroying property, and spreading terror.

*The New York Times did not place this story on the front page; in fact, they did not cover it at all.* Apparently, when assessing “all the news that’s fit to print,” the massacre of African Christians did not measure up. *The same can be said for the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Detroit Free Press, the LA Times, and every other major paper in the United States.*

*The news shows from the three major television channels did not mention the story, and nor did CNN or MSNBC.*

There are several possible explanations for this remarkable silence, and none of them is good.

Since, in point of fact, Muslim radicals kill Christians around the world with alarming frequency, it is probable that one more slaughter did not seem particularly newsworthy to the decision-makers at major news outlets. *Muslims being killed, on the other hand, may strike many as newsworthy precisely because it is so rare.*

Finally, the story simply does not play to the political agenda that many mainstream media would like to advance. How much mileage can be gained from Muslims murdering Christians, when Christians in America are often seen as an obstacle to the “progress” desired by liberals? The left sees Christians in the United States as part of the problem and seeks to undermine their credibility and influence at every turn rather than emboldening them.

*Anti-Christian bias has been rightly called “the last acceptable prejudice,” one that few bother condemning.*

Christians are by far the most persecuted religious group in the world, but the mainstream media routinely ignore this fact as if it were unimportant or uninteresting. As a result, many people do not even realize how widespread the persecution is or that *75 percent of the victims of religious persecution around the world are Christians.*
