How many media outlets ignore the shouting of "Allahu Akbar" on plane? (UPDATED)

A ton of them:

Interesting.  You'd think that most of these media outlets were reading from the same script.  Dude rushes the cockpit while yelling the jihadist war cry and yet most of our beloved and objective local news stations fail to mention it.

And it doesn't end there.  Other outlets are suggesting that perhaps the guy simply had to use the bathroom... badly.

And so the meme continues, truth be damned.

With props to Family Security Matters and Bookworm for the fodder.

UPDATE: Tom Elia has joined the Bathroomers:

... in the original AP article on the story, AP's writers helpfully informed its readers, "Authorities do not yet have a motive."

Further on in the article, in the 13th paragraph, AP attempted to shed some light on the man's intentions by quoting a relative of the man who helpfully suggested, "He might have seriously mistaken the cockpit for the bathroom.... He's only been on three planes in his whole life."

In paragraph 15 and 16, AP 's writers remember to explain that the man was yelling "God is great!" or "Allahu Akbar!" as he charged up the aisle.

Clearly, this was a 'bathroom emergency' of some immediate urgency.

Thank goodness for the Associated Press and its fearless reporting!

Remember, bathroom emergencies are nothing to laugh at...

So now you know how bias works in the media - some media outlets left out the claim that he was "shouting" and that he "rushed the cockpit" - perhaps because it didn't happen...

...but you claim he "rushed the cockpit" and there's no evidence of that, so you're just making up lies.

Nice demonstration of bias. I especially enjoyed the comment from the moron in #7 above who suggest the man should have been shot.

Kinda like taking Rick's word that this man "rushed the cockpit." The reality is that nobody, not even the un-named witness, claims that the guy "rushed the cockpit" but there it is - bullshit ready for you to embrace and hug.

You're right. The video doesn't claim he "rushed the cockpit", instead it says "He was acting strange even before accounts of him storming the cockpit door."

Rick you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself. Your phrase was inaccurate, you should correct the post to accurately reflect the video. He did not "rush the cockpit", instead "he stormed the cockpit door while acting strangely."

Umm... Dick... there are numerous reports suggesting that the man rushed the cockpit:

Larry Wright, 54, of San Mateo, said he had earbuds in when he heard a scream behind him and saw the suspect, 28-year-old Rageh al-Murisi, run past him saying "Allahu Akbar," or "God is great."

Wright followed al-Murisi to the front of the plane, where crew members and other passengers had brought him to the ground.

But I guess that dude is "embracing bullshit"... as I guess is this dudette:

Al-Murisi, described as a burly man, got up from his seat near the back of the plane and "walked briskly" toward the front, where he began yelling and tried to open the cockpit door by turning the handle, police and witnesses said.

"He was walking very fast all the way up to the front," said Angelina Marty, 35, of San Francisco, a passenger on the plane. "He kept walking faster and faster and faster. He was screaming something, and the lady in the row across from me who had spoken Arabic said, 'That's Arabic,' and she had translated it and said it was roughly, 'God is great.' "

So... one witness says run... the other says walking faster and faster... and I say rushed... and I also say that Richard is a buffoon... and there's as much evidence to prove that...

Sheez... freakin' idiot.

'Maybe he was looking for the bathroom': Family defends Yemeni passenger who stormed cockpit, shouting 'Allahu Akbar' as plane came in to land at San Francisco


Why did you post that outright lie RichardW. Not used to someone checking your bullshit?

"The Yemeni man who was wrestled to the floor after pounding on the cockpit door of a plane approaching San Francisco may have mistaken it for the bathroom."

Damn Dickie boy. he must have had to use the bathroom AWFULLY BAD.

The maths teacher, who was heard yelling 'Allahu Akbar' as he allegedly battered the door, had also only been on three planes in his life and would have been unfamiliar with the layout.

Gee there is an account of what he was yelling Dickieboy

Passengers on the flight have given terrifying accounts of how Almurisi was heard to shout 'Allahu Akbar' - or 'God is great' as he hammered the cockpit door.
One, Angelina Marty, said: 'I kept saying to myself, "What's he doing? Does he have a bomb? Is he armed?".'

Ms Marty, 35, said she and other passengers were stunned when Almurisi started walking down the aisle. She said a woman in a row across from her who speaks Arabic translated that he said 'God is Great'.


Gee Dickie, seems like more than one passenger heard him and he scared the shit out of a bunch of them.

Gee Dickie. The headline of the newspaper article said he STORMED the cockpit door. Yet you say that a conservative is making it up.

What's the matter Dickie? Cant read?

The video includes testimony from from one of the passengers, a fellow named Andrew Wai. How do I know his name? Because the video shows his name and identifies him as a passenger. So he is not an un-named person. Were YOU there to dispute what he said happened?

RichardW:

The guy tried to get through the cockpit door, that's a given. "Storming the cockpit door" is a description for what the guy did at the door.

And the 1200 plus news articles Rick convenitnetly ignored when he wrote this article that do mention the guy's "chant" were all written more recently, so that came out later.

Okay, comments 12 and 13 are a hoot. In comment 12, RichardW is saying that it is bullshit that the suspect yelled "allah akbar", and THEN in the very next comment talks about 1200 news articles that mention that the suspect yelled "allah akbar".

Another conservative moron at work. Here's what I wrote in 12, Eric.

"Kinda like taking Rick's word that this man "rushed the cockpit." The reality is that nobody, not even the un-named witness, claims that the guy "rushed the cockpit" but there it is - bullshit ready for you to embrace and hug."

I didn't claim "it is bullshit that the suspect yelled "allah akbar"" you cretin. Go read it again - I was talking about the bullshit rick wrote that the guy "rushed the cockpit" - which I point out as an example of the kind of unsourced, undocumented, factless bull that passes for "news" around here - especially ironic when Rick then bullshits through his entire article claiming the news media ignored the facts.

He comes to the debate with a head full of mush, doesn't bother to look at the evidence, makes a bunch of ignorant comments so that his arguments fall flat on the floor making him look like a fool. As a result, he lashes out and poops on people by calling them bad names.
Basically, just like my 11 year old.

Anyone, reading his comments would see that his arguments are weak and childish. Childish and weak arguments don't win debates. Our arguments are stronger in comparison to them rather than compared to silence.
