French media bans terrorists’ names, photos — but they’re lying about the reason

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The major French news media have imposed a publication ban on themselves, not to name or show pictures of Muslim terrorists.

The media say they don’t want to glorify the murderers. I get that.

But really? I mean, these media love naming and showing every other sort of content. It’s what sells newspapers. How many thousands of times did every liberal newspaper in the world publish the pictures of an atrocity committed by U.S. soldiers in Iraq, at a terrorist prison called Abu Ghraib?

Yet now the very names of terrorists will be banned. Is it really so as not to incite copycats?

Of course not.

It’s to hide the identity of the terrorists as Muslim. We even saw that in Canada last week, when the Globe and Mail called the Munich terrorist “David,” instead of his given name, “Ali.”

The Wall Street Journal reported on the pressure put on French media, from the government itself:

“Could one imagine a stronger vector for terror?” 40 members of the French parliament wrote to the head of France’s media regulator last week. Four days later, TF1, another major French network, published selfies of the rampage suspect grinning next to the 21-ton truck he used to commit his massacre. “Could one imagine more powerful glorification?” the lawmakers wrote, urging the regulator to remind media outlets of the need for prudence.

What a disgrace that France has a “media regulator”. But then again, don’t we — through the CRTC, and the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council, and our kangaroo court human rights commissions?

Yeah, I think it was both, though: journalists not wanting to report the truth; and politicians not wanting them to, either.

I don’t know why anyone would ever buy that newspaper again, other than for the bottom of a birdcage.

This is just the next step in the New World Order program.
If you look at the CBC and the rest of the Media Party in Canada, they have been ‘colouring’ the news with spin, misinformation, outright lies and the sins of omission. As this program of deceit has escalated they have also been censoring the commenters who don’t promote the MSM’s pro-Islam narrative to the point now where there are very few of the large Media Party entities who even have comments sections available anymore – anyone else notice that?
So even though civilization has been blessed with the tool to be informed outside of the mainstream news liars – the Internet – which has thrown a big wrench into the works of the handful of corporate disseminators of mainstream ‘news’, we have come full circle now with the Media Party where they can disseminate any lie or just hide the truth by being mute about it, and no one can challenge it…just like before the Internet! This includes Canada’s public broadcaster, taxpayer funded at a $Billion and a half per year – CBC! How is that even legal?
And all those dumb-f**k sheep out there lap it all up without question.
exempli gratia,
D. – “Islam is the biggest threat to all the people on this planet!”
P. – “You’re a racist and a bigot!”

Here is a modest proposal. Maybe the rebel can publish all the real names of terrorists for everybody to see.

This has happened in Canada as recently as this week. Imagine not reporting a @&$&ing beheading … And the. Doing so grudgingly. Sickening. Would like to see a protest or two but I won’t hold my breath.

Western Media Censoring the People. When Saddam was in charge of Iraq, there were few car bombings ect.. He controlled terrorism by hanging sometimes 200 a week.
If the MSM wishes to Censor the people that indirectly pay their wages, shouldn’t they expect some bad reprisals ? The people could start off by egging them, and if that does not work?? Unlike our Politicians, the media knows exactly what they are doing to us.

Al Rose:
I agree.
The problem with not naming them is like the boy who cried wolf. When an murder takes place that is not terrorist related, no one will believe the media.

They are hoping, in time, by reducing the information, eg name and background on these individuals, the less the public can relate to these murders and events, the more desensitized the public will become.

The media/government is doing this simply to cover up their own mistakes.

Great job Ezra!! Keep up the great work.

We all know what happens to appeasers in the end. They will get what’s coming to them. And I’ll bet that they will cry like babies, when reality hits them upside the head! It’s too bad that there won’t be anyone left to help them, as they face the very same fate, that they are imposing on those of us who wish to live in peace.
commented 2016-07-29 16:30:18 -0400
I predict that this move will eventually backfire on the press. It will soon get to the point that every act where the offender is not named or identified is simply assumed to be a Muslim, whether he is or not. That would be the exact opposite of what they are trying to do.

I think it already happens here when unnamed individuals are described as being behind a driveby shooting or other similar violence: people just assume the shooter is black whether he is or not.

There is no free press/media in western Europe – it’s part of the globalist power structure, and when you see suppression of truth like this you know the Globalist control center in Brussels Paris and Frankfurt are cover up for their imported shock troops they are using to destroy European national borders, cultures and sovereignty.

This is cultural genocide in action folks just like 1933 all over again.

I don’t know who they think they are fooling. They must have a very low opinion of all of us that we are not intelligent enough to read into what it is they are up to. They refuse to identify the problem which is Islam and now they want to hide the fact that these savage crimes are committed by Muslims. Eventually some of these left wing traitors are going to be in the wrong place at the right time and suffer the depraved brutality of one of these Violent Muslim Thugs, maybe then the rose colored glasses will come into focus and they, or what’s left of them to act, will react accordingly.

The useful idiot media will learn the hard way, by then it will be too late. They are targets as well, there is not a magic barrier created by appeasement.

Paul Maurice good points, you cannot blame all the French, like you cannot despise all the people living under communism, they are forced to put up with it.

Is this kind of editing not already done by the CBC, the Toronto Star, Maclean’s, etc.? Right here in our Trudeaupian undemocratic republic?

Derek Harvie: Fuck France?
No! It’s not the majority of French who are at fault. It’s the French leftist liberals, socialists and the French mainstream media.
Let’s hope Marine Le Pen is voted into power in the next French election. Given the mood and reasoning of the average Frenchman at this time, I think she has a very good chance.
If you say “Fuck France”, Derek Harvie, you might just as well say: Fuck Britain, Fuck the USA, Fuck Europe, Fuck Canada, Fuck the Western World.

France needs Marine Le Pen!

PRESSITUTES , as some one aptly named them on this site
commented 2016-07-29 14:15:34 -0400
The only hope for France is the upcoming election. Perhaps they will have enough sense to throw that grubby little socialist, out of power. Remember he stated that the French people were just going to have to get used to Terrorism and dead body’s laying in the streets. It would be politically incorrect to punish the Muslims.
commented 2016-07-29 13:55:08 -0400
I’ve come to an unequivocal conclusion…

Fuck France. Let them rot in the mess they created and continue to support by way of their silence and lack of action.

Well if i was a terrorist ( ISIS ) and my goal is to fill the west with terror by committing brutal acts of terrorism and then watching the news with satisfaction to see how my fellow terrorist have blown up this or that, so i can then take responsibility for it, i would expect the terrorist to be named and not see the whole thing whitewashed.
I would think if acts of terrorism go unnamed and whitewashed and not attributed to ( ISIS) that would make them all the madder and step up act of terrorism.
Do they think if they don’t name it, it will go away. They can stick their finger in the dam for only so long. one day it will all come to a head .

Then again ,it is all part of a grand plan

So “freedom of the press” now in France is a figment of our imaginations? When the truth gets suppressed, anarchy is sure to follow.

“These extremely violent primatives who completely reject our ways are peaceful and benefit us.”
