White House List Contradicts Trump Claim That Terror Attacks Go Unreported

Spicer lashed out at the story, headlined "Trump and Staff Rethink Tactics After Stumbles" as "the epitome of fake news". "They have their reasons and you understand that", Trump told a group of military leaders and troops during the visit to the Central Command.

These remarks were followed by footage of Cooper reporting on attacks in cities such as Ottawa in 2014, Paris and San Bernardino in 2015 and Orlando in 2016.

"I think he feels confident, just like in the ruling in Boston, that we're going to prevail on this on the merits of the case because it is done so in a very lawful way", he continued. Those perpetrated against Westerners and white people count far more than those against Muslims and brown and black people.

In his first appearance as Press Secretary, Spicer said the media deliberately tried to paint Trump in a negative colour, Xinhua news agency reported. This was a month after I reported on the carnage in Paris, where terrorists killed 130 people and wounded many others. Only one bears inclusion on Trump's list - a suicide bombing on a bus carrying guards who worked at the Canadian embassy.

The document also includes spelling mistakes such as "attaker" instead of "attacker" and "Denmakr" instead of "Denmark".

Notice the similarities? A suggestion of nefariousness without any evidence to back it up.

In that same year, 2015, Nigeria experienced almost 600 separate terrorist attacks, which led to the deaths of more than 4,800 people.

In addition, many attacks are perpetrated by right-wing or left-wing extremists that have nothing to do with jihadism. Each attack got wall-to-wall coverage because they're newsworthy.


CBS news anchor Scott Pelley opened his evening program Monday night with a rather passive aggressive message for Trump.

In fact, almost three-quarters of all terrorist deaths in 2015 occurred in just five countries - Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Syria, and Pakistan.

The BBC produced a list of all 78 attacks, linking to its own coverage of the incidents.

President Trump has never publicly acknowledged that attack.

Trump has always been critical of media's coverage, particularly of him and has often alleged that the media distorts facts and portrays him in a negative light. High profile attacks that received massive amounts of media coverage.

That same day, Spicer appeared on ABC and again mentioned Atlanta.

Though the president's criticism of news media is nothing new, some also see the comments as signaling a shift in his relationship with the press as he tries to cement himself as a "tough on terror" president.

As he did when he first addressed the C.I.A., Donald Trump used his first speech before US service members as an opportunity to malign "dishonest" members of the media, whom he accused, without evidence, of not covering terrorist attacks in order to advance a political agenda. If anything, we should be talking less about terrorism. From 2014 through the end of past year, you were 63 times as likely to have died in one of the White House's terrorist attacks than you were to have died from the Ebola virus. But there's no reason for the rest of us to play along.
