CNN media shills are “scratching their heads” over President Trump‘s claims that they under-report Islamic terrorist attacks.
Jim Acosta said the White House gave him a list of 78 terrorist attacks that the media inadequately covered. But clueless Acosta said he doesn’t understand why Trump criticized the coverage.
“There are 78 attacks listed on this list, and … it’s a head-scratcher,” Acosta said. “It’s puzzling as to why the White House would include these attacks on this list when they were covered for days on end.”

The controversy erupted after President Trump told Central Command in Florida that the media under-reports radical Islamic terrorist attacks, choosing instead to cover protests 24-7 or look for “gotcha! moments in an attempt to embarrass him.
“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported,” Trump said. “And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.”
White House press secretary Sean Spicer agreed, saying the media gives wall-to-wall coverage to anti-Trump protests and bogus hate crimes while ignoring violent attacks against Trump supporters and the growing threat of radical Islamic terrorism.
“Protests get blown out of the water and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn’t necessarily get the same coverage,” Spicer said.

Citizen journalists on the ground, especially in Europe, agree that the media underreports terrorist attacks.
In Sweden, there has been a daily barrage of arsons and violent attacks on police by Muslim refugees and migrants that their liberal press largely ignores. And when they do report the crimes, the media never mentions that the perpetrators are Muslim or Middle Eastern.
There’s a similar sort of media censorship in Germany and England, where Middle Eastern criminals are referred to as “Asian” because the press is afraid to be called Islamophobic.

In Marseille, police disguise themselves as Muslims to arrest drug dealer (because they'd otherwise stand out). https://t.co/agn1S0VsVM

Fox News host Jesse Watters blasted the media hypocrisy, saying they gave Obama a pass when he slammed Fox News for 8 years, but are going after Trump with a vengeance because he called out CNN’s biased reporting.
President Obama attacked Fox News for eight years. Media yawns. But now media flips out when Trump hits CNN? Got it

One insightful Trump supporter pointed out there’s a method to Trump’s madness. And it’s brilliant:
Trump's use of psy-ops is LEGENDARY
