UK: Exteme Islamophobia - Newspaper: "Muslim plot to kill Pope"
Blink and you'll miss it
20 September 2010
Remember the 'Muslim Plot to Kill Pope' front page of Saturday's Express?
Yesterday, it was announced that every one of the six men who had been arrested had been released without charge.
Did the Express put this news on the front page? Not quite. Here's page nine of today's paper:
Still can't see it? It's here:
So the Express falsely labels the six men 'Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic terrorists plotting to kill the Pope' on the front page on Saturday, but only mentions they have all been released without charge in one easy-to-miss sentence at the bottom of page nine on Monday.
The Express' owner (Richard Desmond) and editor (Peter Hill) should be ashamed.
