    A group of Christians in FL burns the Koran.
    A group of Muslims in Afghanistan riot, burn things, kill people, etc.
    The media focuses on the extremism of the Christians, ignores the extremism of the rioters.

    A group of Muslims fly airliners into buildings in NYC and DC
    A number of Americans rail against the Muslims who perpetrated said act.
    The media focuses on the extremity of those Americans and goes out of its way to paint Islam as a religion of peace.

    Why does the media do this?

    If you were familiar with blowback, you might have a better understanding of why there are Islamic extremists that attack the United States. There is also a lot of history to be learned.

    I'll tell you this; Islamic extremists dont attack America because we are free. Islamic extremists are also not the whole of the muslim community. in fact, quite the opposite. Sort of like radical fundemental christians that bomb abortion clinics and kill doctors who perform abortions.

    Your question suffers a series of incredibly dichtonomic fallacy.

    When an ideology such as Islam has the ability to control and enslave billions of people, all with lies, it's no wonder the progressives admire it. So they will defend it.

    You are avoiding the issue - why don't you take a stab at addressing the OP?

    The message you (and the media) send here:
    Don't offend the radical Muslom loons, they might get mad and attack us.
    Don't take offense to what the radical Muslim loons do, they might get mand and attack us.

    Your original question asked why the media doesn't focus on radical islamist. On the contrary, "terrorists" and their performed acts are all over our media. Both domestic and foreign. Hence its incredible level of fallacy.

    Should the media attack them for their acts?
    Do you think if the media did do such a thing, it would make any difference?

    The media shouldn't give any of these lunes ANY attention at all. If the media didnt report on Christian nut job in florida, the likelihood of the extremists even knowing about it would be nill to none.

    So, yeah, the media should STFU on putting any of these people on the screen.

    It does only harm and absolutely no good.

    I'm so happy religion is declining so rapidly in america. Hopefully soon enough we no longer have to have these silly discussions because people will replace a faith mindset with a fact mindset.
