The US media covered 75 of the 78 attacks on the list, according to a report Tuesday by Deadspin.
And in some of those 75 cases, investigators have ruled out terrorism while in others the incidents are more like acts of war than terror attacks, according to the NY Post.
President Trump complained to military personnel on Monday that the “very, very dishonest press” deliberately downplayed or even ignored terror attacks — his latest salvo in his war on the press.
“They have their reasons and you understand that,” he added cryptically.
The three that were not extensively covered by the American media include:
- An October 2015 rocket attack on an airfield in Egypt that caused no injuries.
- An October 2016 Molotov cocktail attack on a Swedish mosque by a Syrian national that caused no injuries and was hardly covered by Swedish media;
- A November 2016 attack in which a native of Chad opened fire with a BB gun at cops near the US embassy that injured no one and got little local attention.
He did not elaborate on the purported “reasons” journalists had for minimizing coverage of terror attacks by ISIS and other radical groups.
