White House Releases ‘Unreported’ Terror Attacks And Digs Its Hole Even Deeper

White House Releases ‘Unreported’ Terror Attacks And Digs Its Hole Even Deeper

COMMENTS

The news media took a hit from President Trump, accusing them of failing to report terrorist attacks.

The president recently spoke to troops at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida about the dangers of "radical Islamic terrorists." He said, "It's gotten to a point where it's not even reported, and in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't even want to report it."

"[They] have their reasons, and you understand that." Actually, we don't. At least the nonexistent "Bowling Green Massacre" got some great coverage, courtesy of Kellyanne Conway.

Afterward, onboard Air Force One, the president couldn't cite examples of failed media reporting. But Sean Spicer commented that the terrorist attacks, "Aren't exactly covered to a degree on which they should be." He said that a full list of examples would be released.

In response, the White House compiled a list on Monday night of 78 terrorist attacks that happened, both domestically and overseas, since 2014.

However, the list had some discrepancies.

The list that the media allegedly didn't cover included incidents that were covered around the clock, like the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL, and the attack in San "Bernadino," CA, the latter of which didn't go through a spell check in the White House's official release report. (It's San Bernardino.)

The social media peanut gallery of the Twitterverse had some things to say in response to the list.
