DEAR AMERICA: According To ‘The Media’, When A MUSLIM Kills Shoppers, Blame It On ‘HISPANICS’

Do you remember when the ‘Media’ used to report facts? Oh, those heady days gone by! Now it’s all ‘agenda politics’ and rushing for the scoop… even if it’s WRONG.

ClashDaily asked the question.

(Isn’t ‘Hispanic’ more of a liguistic term?)

With social media, the revolt is well underway:

A controversy began brewing Friday night when Mount Vernon police described the suspect in the Cascade Mall shooting as a Hispanic male in his late teens to mid-20s with a close-shaved haircut.

By Saturday night, when police arrested Turkish immigrant Arcan Cetin in connection with the crime, it had reached a full boil on Twitter.

Some observers were angry that police had wrongly put out the word to look for someone who was Hispanic and that many media outlets — including The Seattle Times — repeated the description.

Laura Martínez tweeted, “BREAKING: Cable networks realize ‘brown mall shooting suspect’ is not Hispanic after all.”

Others suggested that officials and the media were trying to cover up the possibility of terrorism inspired by or sympathetic to ISIS.
