NPR's Shockingly Honest Report on Islamic Terrorism

It appears the left, despite all their efforts has become, to use their term has been woke to terrorism. I mean after all the daily attacks are hard to ignore.

MARTIN: So Shankar, what would these researchers say to someone who sees these headlines time and time again over the years and the perpetrators are either Muslim or are acting in the name of Islam? Is it unreasonable for them to assume a connection?

VEDANTAM: No, I don't think it's unreasonable at all, Rachel. Many of the reasons driving these disparities in coverage are driven by fairly normal psychological processes. Kearns finds, for example, that Muslims are responsible for a disproportionate number of terrorist attacks in the United States.

They're about 1 percent of the U.S. population, but they carried out about 12 percent of the terrorist attacks that occurred between 2011 and 2015.

After all even if you just count the US the average Muslim is 825 times more likely to commit an act of terror than the Kuffar.

Which answers the question about why the coverage of 12% of attacks is 50% of media. It's because of that 825% aberration from the normal expectation.
