Media Admits Ignored Mass Killing Killer Didn't Use Guns

USA TODAY ran an opinion piece admitting that the mainstream media ignored a horrific mass killing in Japan because the killer did not use guns, and thus, they could not use the atrocity to demonize gun ownership.

Earlier this week, USA TODAY ran the headline “Kyoto Animation arson killings didn’t get much attention because we couldn’t demonize guns”, admitting what conservatives have suspected for years: The media only cares about mass shootings because they can use them to push back against the Second Amendment.

USA TODAY reported:

In terms of the death toll, this was Japan’s worst mass killing in nearly two decades, sending shock waves throughout the island nation. Globally, the impact was deeply felt within the anime community, including those attending an international anime convention held in San Diego. Beyond that, the reaction was hardly commensurate with the horrific nature of the crime.

The limited attention here in the United States cannot be explained away on account of distance. Compare the coverage with that of the mosque shootings last March in Christchurch, New Zealand, a location even farther from our shores. U.S. newspapers and wire services featured the Christchurch massacre five times as much as the Kyoto mass murder.

On July 18, a man stormed into a Japanese anime studio, doused the building in a flammable liquid, and shouted “You die!” He then set the building ablaze, murdering 33 workers within.

As USA TODAY noted, the mass killing was the worst in Japan’s history.

The AP reported:

Thirty-six others were injured, some of them critically, in a blaze that sent people scrambling up the stairs toward the roof in a desperate — and futile — attempt to escape what proved to be Japan’s deadliest fire in nearly two decades. Others emerged bleeding, blackened and barefoot.

The suspect, identified only a 41-year-old man who did not work for the studio, was injured and taken to a hospital. Police gave no details on the motive, but a witness told Japanese TV that the attacker angrily complained that something of his had been stolen, possibly by the company.

The fact that over 60 people were injured, some fatally, without the same type of national uproar as the Christchurch shooting, shows the media’s bias. If a gun is used, the story becomes national news and an excuse to justify stripping Americans of the Second Amendment right to defend themselves, but if a gun is not used, the story quickly fades from the national stage and becomes background information.

It is a rare moment of honesty for the fake news media, but USA TODAY finally admits what conservatives have suspected for years: The mainstream media is a propaganda outfit for the left wing.
