Social Media calls out Media’s political correctness in reporting Berlin Attack

Just as the world was coping with the on camera assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, news broke of another terrorist attack, this time in Berlin where an unknown attacker drove a truck through a busy street in a Christmas market killing 12 pedestrians and injuring 48.  The attacker in this case is being reported as a Pakistani refugee. This attack is eerily similar to what happened this July in Nice, France where a similar ‘truck’ claimed the lives of 87 people. Soon the media started coming out with headlines which implied that the truck caused this incident out of its own will and refrained from giving any inking that it was a terrorist attack let alone try find out if the attack had any links to a particular religion.

BBC was still hoping that it was all an accident:


Maybe from now on there would also be a distinction made between good trucks and bad trucks:


Finally CBS went so politically correct that it called the Christmas market where the attack happened as a ‘holiday market’:
