Our news channels have been dominated by the shocking scenes in Kenya and other more mundane events in the past few days. However, there has been an atrocity perpetrated against Christians in Pakistan as they left church that has hardly had a mention in the news, in which more lives have been lost than in the attack in Kenya. It is almost unbelievable that this murderous attack on Christians in which at least 81 lives have been taken has received little or no media coverage!
It was rather bewildering that news channels would devote blanket coverage to one terrible event in Kenya but no media coverage to a more brutal attack on innocent people in Pakistan. Maybe the lives of Christians in Pakistan are of less value than the lives of shoppers in Kenya in the eyes of the media?!
This article, the reasons for this selective news reporting are examined – Massacring Christians in Pakistan – who cares?
