US media ‘complicit in mass murder of Muslims’: Kevin Barrett

The media in the United States is helping to create mass murder of Muslims by hiding the shooting deaths of three American Muslim students in the country, an American political commentator says.

Kevin Barrett, founding member of Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Wednesday, while commenting on the murder of three Muslim students in a shooting incident in the US state of North Carolina.

The incident has not been given coverage “worldwide or here in the United States as Charlie Hebdo incident,” Barrett said because “the media here is complicit in the mass murder of Muslims.”

He added the media is “actually helping to create more such incidents.”

The incident happened in an apartment near the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus on Tuesday.

The victims are Deah Shaddy Barakat, his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and her sister Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha.

“They are simply the latest victims of anti-Muslim genocide which has been created by elements that own most of the media here in the United States,” Barrett said.

The shooter, identified as Craig Stephen Hicks, is being held in the Durham County Jail. He is charged with three counts of first-degree murder.
