'Big Three' ignoring murder linked to domestic terrorism - why?

Major television networks have refused to report on what clearly appears to be an act of domestic terrorism committed by a self-proclaimed homegrown jihadist.

As of late last week, Fox News Channel and CNN had been the only television networks to report on the brutal murder of New Jersey college student Brendan Tevlin. Ali Muhammad Brown, who was arrested on July 18, told authorities that he committed the murder to avenge U.S. military action in Iraq and Afghanistan. Prosecutors say Brown is a devout Muslim enraged by U.S. military intervention in the Islamic world, which he referred to as "evil." It remains unclear if Brown, who was once linked to a suspected terror financing scheme, was a "lone wolf" inspired by jihadist rants or part of a larger plot.

Media Research CenterGeoff Dickens, deputy director of research at the Media Research Center, questions why the ABC, NBC, and CBS haven't been reporting on the murder.

"Is this a terrorist act or is it not?” he asks. “And if it is, clearly it should deserve to have network stories. So far we haven't seen any stories on Brendan Tevlin's death on any of the [broadcast] networks."

While the two cable networks have been covering the story regularly, Dickens says the lack of coverage on the broadcast networks points to the same old politically correct mindset of liberals. 

"This is where the political correctness almost becomes really dangerous,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Because if it's not being properly reported, then how are you going to possibly defend against it?"

Dickens says with the suspect's background and his confession, it is difficult to understand how the networks are not all over this story as an act of domestic terrorism.

More offensive content = more basis for cable choice

A conservative critic says a network's decision to renew the low-rated "Dating Naked" program serves as yet another reason that TV consumers need the power to choose what they want to pay for on cable.
