Salem-News Report Referenced in Story About Spike in Muslim Killings in BurmaSalem-News.com
It is a dubious honor to have your agency referenced internationally over stories of widespread killing.
(SALEM) - Our Boston Bureau Chief, Agron Belica, caught this video on YouTube and sent it to our newsroom today. It leaves me with mixed thoughts about what we do.
There is no question that the media inevitably is a component in all of this unrest. Of course if more media in the U.S. followed the story and also issued reports, none of it would be taking place.
It is about a report we published referencing a visit from the wife of the Turkish Prime Minister to Burma where she saw pitiful cases from this outcast population continually being attacked by Rakhine Buddhist monks who operate with a mob mentality and have been burning village after village where the Rohingya Muslims have lived for generations.
This is the description accompanying the video that was published roughly five weeks ago as the number of dead even by conservative estimates was crossing 1000.
