The media is fairly selective in the stories it chooses to run. This story seems to be buried and part of a larger pattern. Some of what gets chosen in the media is on the basis of moving papers. So if a pretty female is missing it will run for days. Thus aspiring criminals who are publicity shy should steer away from attractive female victims.
Some of the media's attention is directed at political stories. Imams acting unusual on airlines will
get media attention. However, where is the media coverage of the Paris hate crime? Where is the coverage of the Seattle office hate crime trial?
The media will report certain hate crimes even if they did not occur such as the Duke Lacrosse team snafu or the Columbia noose idiocy. The reason for that is all of us should object to KKK types of racist hate crimes. That type of story fits into America has not moved past its racist past mindset of Bolshevik media clowns fed diets of Marx, Chomsky and Menchu at an academic gulag.
The media will do several stories on gunmen shooting up schools. The stories will last for days
but those are often gun culture stories. Interestingly, the media never seems to do similar stories when a Muslim soldier kills his fellow Americans or a Jewish office is targeted in Seattle.
