Local Media Blackout On Religious Implications Of Heartland Terror Scare: Dangerous Kansas Muslim Convert Or Just Another Angry Internets Dude?!?!
Close readers of a recent Midwest terrorist bust story might have noticed but for the most part . . .
KANSAS CITY AND MOST MAINSTREAM MEDIA PLAYED DOWN THE "MUSLIM CONVERT" ASPECT OF THE RECENT WICHITA AIRPORT TERROR SCARE THAT'S RAGING ON CONSERVATIVE WEBSITES!!!
Now . . . While an Al-Qaeda connection isn't likely and this guy seems more like a typical angry janitor. However . . .
THIS TERROR SCARE BUST EVOKES THE QUESTION: WAS THIS A DANGEROUS MUSLIM CONVERT OR JUST ANOTHER INTERNETS D-BAG!?!?!
I know what you're saying . . . Why can't it be both?
Nevertheless . . . In this situation we're looking at an aspect of a story that's making international news and continues to generate headlines while Kansas City media would rather not delve into politically incorrect aspects of the story pertaining to faith or demographics in much the same way that racists usually lament no suspect descriptions in many crime stories.

In the final analysis . . . This is yet another interesting look at media segmentation in the digital era and how news in one niche doesn't even make the radar or rank above doggie stories in another.
