Establishment news media bears the primary responsibility for Islamophobia

Establishment news media bears the primary responsibility for Islamophobia. Had they been doing there job, Americans would not be so easily manipulated.

Whether it is the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, the ravages caused by US covert actions, or the tragic events of September 11, 2001, establishment news media has failed to give us timely, truthful and balanced accounts.

Take 9/11 — arguably the biggest driver of Islamophobia, how many Americans know that 2000+ engineers, architects, military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and professors do not believe the official account of 9/11?

This opposition to the official account is unprecendented. Yet establishment news media have failed to report this, and to inquire why the official account is so discredited in both the US and overseas.

Of course, others — particularly Muslim leaders, are not blameless.

If you're interested in getting to the truth about 9/11, I suggest beginning with this account of what happened at the Pentagon.
