Articles: I Saw Something, So I'm Saying Something
On the media right of this debate is the broad notion that Islam is a violent religion, on the media left is the agenda that the the right wing thinkers are uneducated and insensitive racists, there for they should have the government and the elite think for them. The lefty media will attack any association of terrorists and Islam as racism, the righty media will fall right into the trap, then counter with "the lefty media is trying to control how you think and speak".
Our media has gone as far to push all three agendas, the left, the right and the terrorist's agenda. Every time the media generates terror and then associates the terrorists with Islam (on the right) or a part of Islam not like the rest of those fun loving Islamics that you should love or your a racist (on the left) the terrorists win.
These terrorists have created terror and then had their cause legitimized by the media as a whole as being a voice for Islam, whether "radical Islam" or "Islam".
When Aum Shinrikyo sarin gassed it's subway it didn't read in the headlines "radical Buddhists killed people". When the Branch Davidians had their standoff with the ATF the headlines didn't report "radical Christians shooting at ATF agents". In all these articles it referred to these groups as "cults".
It's a much better definition
A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object.
A relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister.
It implies the truth, that these people are evil and sick in the head. It takes away any legitimacy of an organisation or their beliefs by declaring them crazy. It makes people think to stay away from them and stop them at all costs before they kidnap and brainwash your children. It makes people weary of any flyer handed out to join a meeting or a group, no matter what the flyer is proposing as the savior.
