It has been an interesting couple of days. Recently, while terrorists have been infiltrating and destroying spots across the globe, the media has been pretty quick to cover these incidents. However, as Piers Morgan pointed out when on Fox News’ Tuck Carlson Tonight, virtually no US reporters seem to care about providing coverage on the horrible incident in Egypt.

The following are the key points Morgan and FOX Host Carlson noticed:
CARLSON: “You sent out a tweet right after this [bombing in Egypt] saying: ‘This will not get the attention of massacres is Europe, but it should.’ Why won’t it—do you think?”
MORGAN: “I think, unfortunately, if it happens in the Middle East, this kind of atrocity—it just does not seem to attract the kind of media attention in America that it would if it happened as we’ve seen with the attacks in Sweden the last few days—in London two weeks ago. I was there for that—huge attention in the American Media. In Paris, in Nice—these get huge attention. And yet, what happened in Egypt was unbelievably significant.
If you look at what ISIS really stands for, what they are carrying out now in the Middle East—and in Egypt in particular—is a kind of genocidal attack on Christians and Christianity. They want Christianity eradicated. They want to convert all Muslims to their crusade; they want it to be a holy war—they want Christians gone. And I don’t think that narrative is getting the attention it should get in the American media…”
CARLSON: “What’s so strange is the West is primarily Christian—predominantly. I mean, that’s what makes it the West. And yet, there’s this sense that it’s somehow wrong to root for the home team. When something happens to Christians abroad, it’s somehow—I don’t know—impolite to mention it because it’s self-interested. Have you noticed this?”
MORGAN: “Right. ISIS couldn’t be more transparent. After the attack in St. Petersburg last week, they made it absolutely clear that this is a war against the Cross. They said that. That was what the statement said. They are at war (in their heads) with Christianity. Not just with Christianity, they’re at war with all other religions as well. But they have been singling out, in increasingly virulent terms, that their real war now is against Christians and the Cross…
I think this is a huge story. This is the kind of story that ought to be dominating cable news in America; it should be dominating headlines around the world. The press in America should be full of headlines about this. This narrative, to me, is very straightforward. ISIS has declared war on Christianity. I’m not seeing that being covered enough.”

While Carlson and Morgan scratched the surface, they didn’t quite break into the icy truth of why Middle East Christianity gets little-to-no media. There are actually a couple, primary points to call out here.
A. As Piers Morgan lightly commented, that area always sees brutality—the usual.
B. But the biggest thing is the media being bias in their narrative—re: why they dismiss Muslim terrorists killing off mass amounts of Middle East-based Christians (possibly any Christians).
Upon any Islamic-terrorist incident, journalists always flock to “What could have motivated this attack?” They proceed to slather that inquiry with something along the lines of “We’ve yet to determine the cause—if even possible.”
The media majority doesn’t dare give credence to Islamic terrorism, as it would derail the amazing fantasy they’ve going that ultimately celebrates liberals and the Democratic Party. They adhere to a general, fantastic guideline—something like: conservative Christians instigate conflict with mediocre Muslims via pontificating on every time jihadists incite terror.
Upon any Islamic-terror incidents, the falling action must meet certain criteria so liberals can perpetuate their fantasy and financially collect on it:
–Dismiss or feature vague articles on the incident at hand.
–As a knee-jerk reaction, conservative outlets jump on the story, justifiably assigning responsibility on radical, Islamic ideology.
–Leftist-news reporters do a quick sweep with featuring the studio folks pushing the idea that “not all Muslims are terrorists” (that’s not necessarily the case in most instances). They slap conservative-news assessments with the “overreaction” stick, which supposedly promotes Islamophobia. Don’t forget to pontificate on how that instigates racial violence against moderate Muslims.
–Media majority then highlights a couple instances of people hating on moderate Muslims—those go viral across all news platforms.
–US citizens suddenly become tight lipped out of fear for being portrayed as evil, or they embrace the liberal-designed fantasy.
–In the end, liberals are portrayed in a heart-warming light, as they’ve saved a minority from the evil, conservative Christians who’ve banded together in an effort to single out one person—or small group.
–Add some new characters and settings, then repeat the formula.
With the above formula, liberals attract followers who view them in a sympathetic light. Due to the left’s doctrines lacking any real substance, they hide behind the façade of sympathy. For them, the superficial system goes a long way.
Again, liberals feel compelled to fight the “evil band” of conservatives—most of the latter are Christian. Therefore, liberals view the validation of Christians suffering or killed via Islamic terror as enabling the quasi-villains.
The liberals value and depend on their fantasy of Christian conservatives inciting an unnecessary fear of moderate Muslims and instigating Islamophobia, so in no way would they lend a public eye to and denounce Christian genocide via the jihad. Rather than doing anything that would possibly show people the true nature of Islamic activists, liberals turn a blind eye and stick to their functional fantasy.
