About that Muslim demonstrator at a Trump rally . . .

. . . all is not what the mainstream media would like you to believe.  As Karl Denninger points out:

Who is Rose Hamid?

Let's start with Reuters, who correctly identifies her as a Democrat, that is, someone who has no intention of voting for Trump.  In other words she was there under intentional false pretense and that makes her a trespasser, for which she was escorted out once she identified herself.

But does Trump or anyone else owe her an "apology"?  Nope.

And here's why:

As President of the Muslim Women of the Carolinas, Hamid has consistently promoted anti-Israel propaganda and has excused Palestinian jihadi terrorism as “resistance” against “occupation.”  

“For anyone who wonders why Palestinians are resisting the apartheid, oppressive occupation of Israel, here’s one of the MANY MANY reasons,” she wrote in September 2014 on her Facebook page, following the summer war between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.....

Oh, so she's not one of those "peaceful, loving" Muslims we're all told about.  No, she's an advocate for Hamas and has repeatedly excused Palestinian terrorism!

And it gets better...

Hamid’s Muslim Women of the Carolinas group has in the past promoted an event with Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted coconspirator in the trial of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj, a 9/11 truther, has called for the creation of an Islamic state in the United States.

I see....

You have a right to free speech in this country.  You do not have a right to trespass on private property and disrupt an event, even silently.  I do not recall anyone telling Ron Paul during the last election cycle that he owed apologies to the strippers that "someone" hired to infiltrate his event in Tampa; they, like Hamid, were escorted out.

Since the media won't honestly report on who this jackal actually is and the positions she has taken in the past and neither will CAIR, it's time for the rest of America to BOYCOTT these media outlets, all of their advertisers (yes, that includes you CNN) and anyone affiliated with or associated with either.

There's more at the link, and he addresses the situation again in a later post here.

He's right, of course.  The bias of the media has never been more clear than in the current election cycle.  It's baffling to me how any American can even begin to imagine that they're providing the 'straight dope' on any political story or topic.  Chris Matthews' recent interview with Hillary Clinton is another prime example.  He failed to live up to the name of his program, 'Hardball', by softballing her at every turn, never challenging her, never trying to stop her evasions, never trying to get her to address the very real issues stemming from her past conduct.  It was an on-air love-in rather than an interview

I now get most of my news - including US news - from foreign news media that I access via the Internet.  I've learned the hard way that virtually all the major US news media are biased and untrustworthy.  (Yes, that includes Fox News.)

Remember the old "The only good indian..." quote? replace the noun with muslim and I think we might be onto something.

What non-USian news sources do you use?

I'm a fairly rabid anti-communist but I have profited on occasion from reading China's People's Daily (English edition). Their news is written by expat English majors, so no Chinglish, and it's blessedly free of the oh-so-clever editorializing, spin, and Pulitzer-begging found in NYT and WaPo.

Russia Today is pretty much worthless.

OAN (One America News) is pretty good, *IF* your cable/sat company offers it.
