    God is great” in Arabic … Like clockwork, the media rushes to protect the world from hearing the actual words of jihadis. Yesterday’s suspected terrorist reportedly shouted “Allahu akbar” while carrying out the attacks. The AP Stylebook says on page 106 of the 2015 edition, “If such a [foreign] word or phrase is needed in a story, place it in quotation marks and provide an explanation: ‘ad astra per aspera,’ a Latin phrase meaning ‘to the stars through difficulty.’” That didn’t stop CNN from omitting the Arabic phrase on its chyron yesterday. Here, watch.
    Further Down

    As if on cue, reports started pouring in about a “truck” that drove through people yesterday. These included CNN, Now This, BuzzFeed, The Hill, and surprisingly, the conservative-leaning Washington Examiner. This is something the media does: It blames inanimate objects instead of the person controlling them, whether it is a gun, car, knife, or, in this instance, a truck

    What CNN and the others overlook is that most people in the world, when they hear of attacks like this, assume Islamic terrorism until they hear otherwise. I hold up the Las Vegas massacre as an example.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
    Psalm 55:22
