Don’t use Paris as an excuse for racism and war!’ – anti-CNN protesters

16 November 2015

Protesters gathered in front of the CNN headquarters in New York City to speak out against what they see as a biased use of the media when reporting on recent Paris and Beirut attacks, as well as the Russian plane that was downed in Sinai.

The alleged Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) attacks in Paris last Friday have been seized upon by the Australian political and media establishment to justify the country’s involvement in the US-led wars in Iraq and Syria and the abrogation of democratic rights at home that has taken place on the pretext of combatting terrorism: here.

In the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, Germany’s media has shifted sharply to the right.

    “Last Friday’s terror attacks in Paris have triggered an international media campaign aimed at inspiring panic and justifying an escalation of the wars in the Middle East and the assault on democratic rights within the US and Europe”. The media coverage of the Paris attacks was, and still is, in overdrive – total overkill, compared to coverage of other events. Whipping up hysteria (and anti-Muslim prejudice). That is a dangerous thing to do.
