Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


From a reasonable point of view, a racist attack on an RNC speaker should be more newsworthy than a racist attack on a nameless camerawoman. The complete lack of media coverage of the first event combined with extensive coverage of the second event reminds us once again that the media is not opposed to racism, it selectively exploits racism to promote its political agenda.
