CBS Covers The Beheading In Buffalo

I hadn't even finished my first cup of coffee this morning when a discussion of this story came onto the television screen, courtesy of CBS Morning News.

One person interviewed - I believe that she was a supporter of women's rights - stated that using the defense of "cultural differences" will backfire because America doesn't any ideology promoting such violence against women.

A crack in the media's whitewash of Islam? Maybe.

Of course, the story was truncated and didn't address the concerns it should have.

The story of last week's beheading in Buffalo was also covered last night on the NBC Nightly News, though not coming nearly as close to condemning the misogyn of shari'a law and its Islamic origins.
