Bernie Goldberg Says if Hasan was "White Male Christian" his Religion Would be Top Story - Video 11/6/09


Here is video of Bernie Goldberg saying that if Fort Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan was a "White Male Christian" instead of a Muslim, his religion would be the top story in the mainstream media. But because he is Muslim, most of the mainstream media refuse to even consider that his Islamic beliefs are central to his commit a terrorist act.

I think if Nidal Malik Hasan was a "White Male Christian" instead of a Muslim, then also he will be committing such type of crime.

I have to disagree. Don't you think, "Authorities say that Hasan, a white male Christian, opened fire on fellow US soliders at Ford Hood..." would be a really strange news story? We'd ask, "What does his being a Christian have to do with anything," and maybe even think it was some sort of attempt at bashing Christians.

Don't get me wrong -- if there's any evidence that he carried out the attacks BECAUSE of his religious beliefs, then it should absolutely be reported. But so far the news I've heard has suggested that he snapped and didn't want to be deployed, which even a Christian could have done. His motives should be examined, for sure.

Let's not cry wolf about media bias with things like this, so that when the media really does show its bias, people will listen.

I think Hassan's religion is most definitely part of the story. Perhaps it isn't the lead b/c it's much more obvious that a muslim would feel a certain stress, given we are at war in the middle east, than a white christian would. We would have to search more for a reason were the shooter a white christian male.

I know the general consensus is that this soldier was a Muslim intent on jihad. I, however, am one of the growing population who think that one must first evaluate this man for psychological problems before labeling him a terrorist. There are plenty of serial killers in American prisons who have done plenty more killing than this soldier.
