The shooting of three Muslim students yesterday in Chapel Hill, NC is horrific and tragic and awful and just about any other adjective you might think of to describe a triple-murder, but there‚Äôs one thing that‚Äôs clear: It‚Äôs not at all comparable to the terrorist attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris last month.
But not according to Sally Kohn:
Readers quickly schooled Kohn on where she went wrong.¬†First up, on her¬†criticism of the media‚Äôs coverage of the event, which is now quite extensive:
Heh. Maybe she needs a time machine to accurately judge the media‚Äôs coverage?
And secondly, let‚Äôs point out the obvious: there‚Äôs no ‚Äúremotely comp coverage for shooting *OF* Muslims right here @ home‚ÄĚ because the two stories aren‚Äôt remotely comparable. At all:
Great job, Sally. Except for the number of killers and victims, the weapons used, terrorist ties, multi-day search, multiple terrorist attacks, a police/military stand-off, world solidarity marches and¬†millions of Muslims angered by cartoons, these stories are remarkably similar.
