Journalists Advance Deception

The lamestream media told you:

Islam is the religion of peace.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

It's not clear how or why America's "news" media so uniformly jumped onto that promo line right after the 9/11 Muslim jihadi attacks on America, but the newspeak game has not gone away, and is being promoted anew from an unlikely quarter.

The Society of Professional Journalists, in their latest online newsletter, is promoting an Arab-backed website that helps journalists define words. SPJ reports that the website's creator says, "madrassa" is "little more than the Arabic word for school." The newsletter goes to more than 10,000 journalists primarily in the U.S.

The typo-laden site also notes that the word "jihad" has been hijacked by media extremists (and jihadis) to help promote hate. If SPJ keeps such dubious contacts coming it can quit wondering why the mainstream public no longer trusts the lamestream media.

Dozens of SPJ staffers and brass have been personally notified by The Uninvited Ombudsman of the questionable reference source. None have responded. Go figure.
