Anyone who reads alternative media on a regular basis knows that the mainstream media routinely airbrush Islam out of any news story where Muslims do bad things. It’s a given. And if a violent perpetrator has an obviously Muslim name, news outlets will withhold it for as long as possible (or never release it at all, which is generally what happens in Scandinavia).
But who is responsible for this sanitizing of the news? In many cases it’s the media outlets themselves, who understand the new rules implicitly and apply them voluntarily, without being told. They know very well you don’t mess around with JIM.
However, the following story about an attempted “honor killing” in Newfoundland was originally broadcast by NTV with the Islamic angle front and center, totally uncensored. Then, within two days, all mention of JIM was systematically scrubbed from text versions of the story, and the original news video disappeared down the memory hole.
Vlad Tepes was alert and noticed the changes. The CTV report that came out later had dropped all references to religious belief, but Vlad had screen shots of the original, plus the original video from NTV (an affiliate of CTV). He made this before-and-after video to demonstrate the sudden and dramatic change in the account of Khalaf Alshaek’s attempt to kill his daughter for marrying a non-Muslim:
Who ordered the changes in the story, and why?
Vlad had this to say when he first discovered the bowdlerized account:
(This is very important. The video in this story is, as the expression goes, ‘The damnedest of lies’, meaning of course a lie with just enough truth in it to be effective, and hence pernicious. The original story we posted here some days ago, had the father stating clearly that his daughter was involved with a non-muslim and therefore he needed to attack her and possibly kill her for it. Now they have massaged the islamic angle totally out of the story, slipping in some details of the truth while interjecting aspects of it that anyone might think is motive for anger. “cultural differences, honour changes to husband” and other total bits of informational sleight of hand to take the islam, the real motive for all of this, out of the story. Both the video and the article here have been sanitized. Here is the link to the article from Monday this week. It appears that link has been sanitized as well)
On March 24 (give or take 24 hours) A Canadian TV station broadcast a very specific story about how a Saudi man attempted to choke his daughter for marrying a non-muslim man in an honour crime, as they call it.
On March 26, CTV broadcast the results of a brief trial in which the father was expelled from Canada for his actions but the story was very fundamentally changed. Also the first video, which I had downloaded, had been deleted from YT leaving the usual message of:
“This video was removed by the user”
Now often YT will remove a video and leave that message as I recall, but either way, the original story had been sanitized from the net and there is pretty much no history of it that can be found on the original channel’s webpage either, although it does say something about religion.
