The mainstream media are either stupid or evil – or both.
That is the only reasonable conclusion you can reach from the Daily Beast’s articleThursday that exposed the identities of Pamela Geller’s four daughters and the subsequent decision of major and minor newspapers and magazines throughout the Western world to re-run the story.
As far as media stupidity goes, it’s possible that Daily Beast “reporter” Taylor Lorenz, who outed Geller’s daughters, is too dumb to understand that she put their lives in danger by exposing their identities.
It is possible that the Daily Beast, the Washington Post, the New York Post, Cosmopolitanmagazine, and all the rest have no idea that there is a direct link between the fatwa – or Islamic ruling — published by the Islamic State on May 5, 2015 calling for Geller to be “slaughtered,” and ISIS’s attempt the next month to behead her. A Boston court sentencedtwo area-based ISIS terrorists to prolonged prison terms on December 17, 2017 after finding them guilty of conspiring to behead Geller in June 2015.
