ISIS is operating training bases just across the US southern border according to a report last week in Judicial Watch. Specifically the base is about 8 miles from the Texas border near Ciujad Juaraz in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Mexican officials found documents in Arabic, schematic plans for the US Army’s Fort Bliss, and Muslim prayer rugs.
One would think this would be important news. A Google News search however showed this story was being ignored by the mainstream media. The coverage rather was by Fox News, Western Journalism, World Net Daily, Newsmax, and the Washington Times, representing more of the alternative, than the traditional media.
Instead the mainstream media is busy chasing Hillary Clinton’s campaign van, acting like a gaggle of preteen girls chasing Justin Beiber. Is this what passes for journalism these days?
Why aren’t journalists more interested in the ISIS story? Will ignoring the story make it go away?
If I were a journalist, I would be quite concerned about ISIS in my backyard. ISIS recently beheaded a Japanese journalist. Last year an American journalist suffered the same fate. Do the journalistic sleuths at the NY Times or CNN believe they would be exempt from a similar fate at the hands of ISIS?
The media provided weeks worth of coverage to a small Indiana pizzeria that was asked a hypothetical question about catering a same-sex wedding. Or to Rand Paul’s trumped up “war on women” for daring to stand up to a pushy interviewer. Yet ISIS is of little concern. What about the ISIS war on gays and women?
