After President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer complained on Monday that the media does not adequately cover terror attacks carried out by or inspired by the Islamic State, the Trump administration released a list of 78 terror attacks they say have been ignored by the press.



White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said later on Monday that "these terrorists attacks are so pervasive at this point that they do not spark the wall-to-wall coverage they once did," according to the Washington Post.

“If you look back just a few years ago, any one of these attacks would have been ubiquitous in every news outlet, and now they’re happening so often — at a rate of more than once every two weeks, according to the list we sent around — that networks are not devoting to each of them the same level of coverage they once did,” she said, per the Post.

However, the list includes several attacks that did earn a lot of media coverage, like the San Bernardino shooting in 2015, the shooting at the Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas in 2015, and the November 2015 attacks in Paris.

    There are actually power holders in this administration that see those attacks as justified and honorable

    I'm almost willing to bet that the vast majority of those incidents were probably not even confirmed as terror attacks by the local authorities and I'm also willing to bet some of those charges are straight 🤬 created out of thin are so that the police could justify their 🤬 .

    Kellyanne Conway: Some Terror Attacks Did Get 'Wall-To-Wall' Coverage

    Despite what the White House has claimed, top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway acknowledged on Tuesday that some terror attacks on a list released by the administration did in fact receive "international coverage and wall-to-wall coverage."

    "What the President, I believe, is saying, Bill, is that the ones you're pointing out we had a high number of casualties, of course got international coverage and wall-to-wall coverage, as well they should have," Conway said in an interview with Fox News' Bill Hemmer.

    She claimed that other attacks "lead to mass casualties but still don't get the attention."

    "It tells you that we're becoming inured to some of these attacks that don’t, thank 🤬 , lead to mass casualties, but still don't get the attention," Conway added. “Anybody who thinks that this is just an issue and a movement of terrorists fading into the background is just wrong. I think the President just wants to shine a light on that.”

    During a speech on Monday before American troops at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, Trump claimed that the media is not reporting on terrorist attacks, though he did not explain why.

    "It's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it," he said. "They have their reasons and you understand that."

    White House press secretary Sean Spicer later denied that Trump meant attacks are underreported to make him look bad.

    “He felt members of the media don’t always cover some of those events to the extent that other events might get covered," Spicer told reporters on Air Force One. "Protests will get blown out of the water, and yet an attack or a foiled attack doesn’t necessarily get the same coverage."

    The Trump administration on Monday night released a list of 78 terror attacks it said have been ignored by the media. However, the list included several attacks that did earn widespread coverage, such as the San Bernardino, California shooting in 2015 and the attack in Nice, France in 2016.

    A lot of those, I recalled off the top of my head.. Plus, wtf did you think was going to happen at the Draw Mohammad event in Garland, Tx? My main take away from that list is Germany and France keep it poppin. Egypt had other 🤬 going on if I recall correctly. It's not like they were living in peace and terrorist mufuckas just came and blew 🤬 up. They had just over thrown President Morsi and charged him with war crimes. That's not no peaceful 🤬 , I'm sure people died in the american revolution and civil war. Since we talking about omitted news and 🤬 , I did notice that Seneca Village was left off, tho.

    Yesterday in Tampa, Donald Trump complained that the “very, very dishonest press” purposely ignores acts of terror around the world. When pressed for examples, the White House last night released a list of 78 incidents it called terrorism that it says were overlooked by U.S. national media. That list—one full of puzzling spelling errors like “ATTAKER,” “DENMAKR,” and “BERNADINO”—included an attack the L.A. Times won a Pulitzer for covering in depth.

    In the above video, you can see 75 of those incidents being covered by U.S. national media—despite many of them fitting a very questionable definition of “terrorism.” In some cases, investigating authorities have directly ruled out terrorism while in others the acts are more akin to being direct warfare than terror. Regardless, only three of the items on Trump’s list did not earn broad coverage from the U.S. national media:

    EL GORA, EGYPT

    October, 2015

    TARGET: No casualties; airfield used by MFO attacked with rockets

    ATTAKER: Unidentified ISIL-Sinai operatives


    We were unable to verify that this incident actually happened. Several minor attacks at the El Gora (or El Gorah, or Al Jura, or Al-Jurah) airport appear on Trump’s list, but this incident only exists on the Internet in reports yesterday of Trump releasing this list.

    MALMO, SWEDEN

    October, 2016

    TARGET: No casualties; mosque and community center attacked with Molotov cocktail

    ATTACKER: Syrian national


    This was an instance of arson that was barely reported on even in Sweden, and injured no one.

    N’DJAMENA, CHAD

    November, 2016

    TARGET: No casualties; attacker arrested after opening fire at entrance of US Embassy

    ATTACKER: Chadian national


    A man from Chad drove by some police officers and shot them with a BB gun. It drew little local or regional attention.
