    The job of media- any media is too make as much money as possible. The media clowns are not out to get Muslims, Muslims just happen to sell nowadays. Do most of you know that fox news is owned by a saudi prince?? He is the second largest share holder, you really think they would be allowed to say all the stuff they say without his consent???

    Remember the ground zero mosque? Fox news made a huge fuss about "overseas donations" and who they might be coming from, guess what... it was their boss the same prince who writes their pay checks who was going to fund the mosque. :lol:

    This Chinese-trollagon continued his pointless bickering for some time and in the end he had this to say
    Which proves that the western media is leading people astray and thus the concerns of the OP are authentic.

    Exactly.

    The media in the West is not much different than the media in the rest of the world. They may be more seasoned, methodical, and have a long history of being in publication, however, they sell their stories to their fellow nationals, therefore it will always have that inherent bias.

    It is unlikely they will have a complete neutral objective viewpoint, case n point, Judith Miller and her Mushroom cloud story in the NY Times before the Iraq invasion in 2003.

    Tell me one Media which isn't Biased or Contradictory ?

    Media has been tool of governments and multi-national companies to condition large number of people. Its just another way of crowd control.

    It's not the content of the post that bothers me - conspiracy theories are a dime a dozen.

    It's my opinion that many regional language media in the Muslim world will carry this or a similar conspiracy theories as 'fact', thereby adding to the narrative of injustice and grievance.

    If someone with a muslim name commit rape will he be called islamic rapist?Or thief with a muslim name an islamic thief??NO...But the term islamic terrorist is applied because muslim terrorists base their fights on islam..And since it makes you uncomfortable to introspect why there are dozens and dozens of terrorists groups who base their struggle on islam and kill innocents in the name of islam,you are pathetically left blaming western media/kafirs..

    I took a look at what some of the media in the Muslim world were saying about Xinjiang...

    It's pretty bad. They were the same kind of things that Erdogan said (his specific words were "genocide").

    I didn't look again.

    It is the reality indeed, but I'm not sure what effective answer anyone can have to something like this. The conspiracy theory effect, if one can call it that, has severe and long term consequences for everyone, particularly if they're believed.

    Well you chose to base your rhetoric on your biased subjectivity....heres somethimg concrete to reflect my words.
    The PJ Tatler » San Diego Muslim man arrested for brutal murder of his wife was US Army Islamic cultural adviser
    I am not interested in wasting my time over convincing you......but proving your faulty perception wrong will just take a sec.....kindly tell me why an innocent Saudi man was rumoured as a suspect? And how about that Bangladeshi who was beaten up post boston blasts? Any person with an iota of reasonable mental agaility can tell that these two events are an emodiment of racial profiling being nurtured by the western media.

    I am not denying bias of some of western media against muslims..Media bias is everywhere be it in west or in muslim countries.
    My point is please dont use it as an excuse to cover up the massive role played by 100s of muslim terrorist organisations who fight and kill innocents in the name of islam,in creating a negative perception of islam and muslims..
    Racial profiling is the unwanted side effect of lot of extremist muslims getting involved in terrorist activities including latest boston blasts,and due to the presence of plathora of islamist terrorist groups all over the world..And i agree with you that the beating of bangladeshi man by hispanics is an utterly uncivilised act..Where i dont agree is where you put blame on western media,while conveniently ignoring the bigger role played by muslim extremists worldwide in creating islamophobia.

    @liontk kid if you do not know something, please ask but dont accuse or judge..I put that picture because I saw the thread getting off track....PLUS it was to cool the moods of someone...In no way do I support terrorist who blow up normal humans....Neither do I need to explain myself as you should have known me by now...I rarely go to such threads if I do, I post more than once but for this thread it was just to cool the situation....as some people were going off tangent...

    IF someone cant take a joke, they should not come out on a public forum...the forum is not a bashing place...it is supposed to be a place to exchange ideas....

    Sorry if this sounds rude but it had to be said...

    I just read my comment and I was totally out of line but understand that I was also trying to defuse the situation(my intentions were not bad), sorry if I sounded wrong but the debate was getting very heated and i have noticed that it is always same people and you know who that always start the whole thread deraling and the faith of islam is thrashed so I did not want them to even have one single second of satisfaction. I grew up here and when someone labels the whole religion'e de islam and says all muslims are secret symphatizers , it gets in my nerve and i end up making stupid remarks and that was immature on my part calling you a bigot, mere mazarat(don't have dictionary but i think it means sorry). :)
