    Post's 'sick and repulsive' headline calls al-Baghdadi a religious scholar

    Washington Post is run by idiots. Its something Terb's brotherhood would say.


    Hannity hits Washington Post's 'sick and repulsive' headline that called al-Baghdadi a 'religious scholar'

    The Washington Post's headline calling ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi an "austere religious scholar" is "sick and repulsive," Fox News host Sean Hannity said Sunday, following the confirmation of his death at the hands of U.S. special forces.
    Al-Baghdadi, who took over as the head of ISIS after his predecessor Abu Omar al-Baghdadi was killed in 2010, was said to have detonated a suicide vest as U.S. special forces closed in. Troops were sent to attack a compound in northern Syria where al-Baghdadi was located, according to a U.S. defense official.

    No U.S. Special Operations forces were harmed or killed during the mission, and Trump claimed the operation had been in the works for several weeks.
    Hannity called al-Baghdadi an "evil SOB," whom the might of the American military finally defeated. He wrote that The Washington Post needed to be "educated" about the horrors he perpetrated upon innocent people.

    "An 'austere religious scholar'? 'Dead at 48'? No — he was cornered by the greatest toughest best military heroes on earth!! How about we killed the evil SOB. This is exactly why America will never trust these mainstream corrupt fake news outlets ever again," Hannity tweeted.
    "Let me educate The Washington Post. Al-Baghdadi was the leader of ISIS. The terror organization that is responsible for killing hundreds of thousands of people," he continued.
    Hannity also claimed ISIS forces took pleasure in torturing their victims and shamed The Washington Post for trying to paint al-Baghdadi as anything other than a terrorist.

    "ISIS terrorists take pleasure in beheadings and burning people alive in cages," he wrote. "They use cars and trucks to mow down innocent people. To describe Al-Baghdadi as an 'austere religious scholar' is sick and repulsive."
    “Regarding our al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly," Washington Post Vice President of Communications Kristine Coratti Kelly told Fox News earlier.

    Here in Canada, the Post is the National Post. Even in the US of A, since many cities and towns — New York City for example — have newspapers with Post in their name, people who care about clarity use the full name in the first mention.

    Not everyone lives in the single focus world limited to Trumpian hate-objects.

    What progress?

    He earned a doctorate in Islamic studies. That made him an Islamic religious scholar. It is not an easy thing to earn a Ph.D., even for an evil mind.

    Doesn't matter, he's a terrorist that killed a lot of people, that should have been the headline, not making him out to be a scholar. The unabomber was a genius and harvard university grad, should that have been the headline. "Mathematics genius and Harvard grad gets arrested"

    More garbage from the Washington post

    Washington Post's Max Boot deletes sentence he says ‘unintentionally’ painted al-Baghdadi as courageous

    The Washington Post columnist Max Boot was forced to backtrack after initially declaring that President Trump was wrong to label dead ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi a coward.
    Trump announced on Sunday that al-Baghdadi killed himself as U.S. Special Operations forces raided his compound in northern Syria. Trump said the terror leader – who set off a suicide vest, immediately killing himself and three children – “died like a coward.” Boot, who is also a CNN analyst, was apparently offended that Trump criticized the ISIS leader.

    "The assertion that Baghdadi died as a coward was, in any case, contradicted by the fact that rather than be captured, he blew himself up,” Boot wrote in a widely criticized column.
    Boot became a trending topic on social media as critics lampooned his theory, but the Washington Post columnist eventually changed his tune and deleted the bizarre sentence.

    “An earlier version of this column included a sentence questioning whether Trump was right to call Baghdadi a coward because he blew himself up. The line was removed because it unintentionally conveyed the impression that I considered Baghdadi courageous,” Boot wrote in the updated edition.

    Boot added that al-Baghdadi’s “removal from this earth is good news,” after all.
    The Washington Post did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
    But Boot’s gaffe wasn’t the only odd moment in the Post’s coverage of al-Baghdadi’s death. Columnist Greg Sargent said Trump’s announcement featured “deeply sick and twisted” rhetoric and praised news organizations who were “very blunt and clear” about the president’s intentions.

    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s newspaper also faced an avalanche of criticism Sunday for including the phrase "austere religious scholar" in the paper's headline of a story on al-Baghdadi's death.
    “Regarding our Al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly,” Post spokesperson Kristine Coratti Kelly said in a statement on Sunday.

    “Given how the Post headlined Baghdadi's death, it's safe to assume they really don't want Trump to have any victories -- even if America also has the victories,” Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News.

    The Washington Post is the political paper of record in the US, you know that, your just being a cunt.


    At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy, is the little man, walking into the little booth, with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper - no amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of the point.

    As it's the Washington Post owned by Bezos, yes it matters.
    I endorse Senator Bernie Sanders for President in 2020.

    It is my hope Tulsi Gabbard becomes his running mate.
