For now, everyone knows the sonorous name and cherubic face of 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos. She's the littlest known victim of Monday night's jihad attack in Manchester, England. Her doe-eyed image spread as rapidly across social media as the #PrayForManchester hashtags and Twitter condolences from celebrities.

Appearing as a guest on Monday's CNN Tonight, CNN host Fareed Zakaria indicted the "religious establishment" in some Arab countries for fomenting terrorism in a way that would have liberals accusing him of bigotry or profiling if uttered by a more right-wing analyst. After remarking that the concert attack in Britain was "radical Islamic terrorism -- let's call it what it is," he went on to complain that Arab states have "funded, financed and encouraged" the ideology, and that the "religious establishment" in their countries "has encouraged this kind of violence, these kind of views about Westerners and any nonbelievers."

By and large, the news media remained calm, collected, and hesitant to speculate on Tuesday night following the terrorist attack in Manchester, England at the Ariana Grande concert. That being said, the evening was not without notable comments, including some from MSNBC’s All In host Chris Hayes.

With President Trump visiting Israel Monday, the media have been pushing the narrative that President Obama was Israel’s protector, literally (see headlines below). On Tuesday, CNN political analyst David Gregory and global affairs analyst Tony Blinken were eager to assert that President Obama was Israel’s greatest ally in regard to security.

On Thursday, at the World Summit for the Defense of Persecuted Christians, Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) warned of the growing threat to religious liberty worldwide and the lack of government and media action taken to confront it. Hosted by The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Lankford joined global politicians, faith leaders and victims of persecution in the first-ever international summit to address the most pressing issues facing Christians abroad. In a press conference, the senator stressed the importance of awareness, calling the media’s reticence to use the word genocide “very disheartening.”

Once again, ABC’s Matthew Dowd has proved that even Twitter can’t keep him from saying something so stupid in so few words. Responding to FNC’s Shannon Bream tweet announcement that she was going to be talking to Franklin Graham about the increasing persecution of Christians across the world, Dowd bitterly brought up anti-Muslim “persecution” in the United States as the real issue we should be talking about.

On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence condemned the horrifying “atrocities” committed against Christians “under siege” worldwide by “radical Islamic terrorists” as “genocide.” But will the broadcast networks report his comments – and, if so, will they finally use the word “genocide” themselves?

On Tuesday's New Day, during a discussion of the legal battle over the Trump administration's efforts to implement a travel ban targeting several predominantly Muslim countries, CNN co-host Chris Cuomo claimed that there was "BS" in the administration perceiving more danger from illegal immigrants and Muslim immigrants, and claimed that Trump had "called all Muslims bad people." And, even though CNN and other dominant left-leaning media sources are in the habit of cherry picking examples of black suspects being killed by police officers while ignoring the many more white suspects who are also killed by the police, -- leading many, including some journalists, to believe most cases involve blacks -- Cuomo accused President Donald Trump of "cherry picking" cases of illegal immigrants committing crimes to exaggerate the danger.

The showrunner of ABC’s Quantico said they would be “substituting Trump for terrorism” but in the May 5 episode, titled “RAINBOW,” they manage to combine both. A character with a name almost identical to real life President Trump supporter and tech mogul Peter Thiel is used in a terror plot to hijack airplanes using a money sharing app.

On Monday's New Day, as CNN's Christiane Amanpour informed viewers of the French presidential election results, she twice tagged defeated conservative candidate Marine Le Pen as "extreme" and "far right," and also charged that she campaigned on "fear and hatred and loathing." She also made sure to bring up the anniversary of Europe's victory over Nazi Germany, and relayed to viewers that the government of Germany -- "of all places" -- is concerned that Le Pen could be elected next time if Emmanuel Macron fails as president. Amanpour: "Now, today is V-E Day, which is obviously the celebration of European victory against the Nazi war machine. It comes one day after the extreme far right candidate herself was defeated."

As devastating as Egypt’s Palm Sunday bombings were, the country’s Coptic Christian community is bracing for further violence to come. On Friday morning, Newsweek reported that an ISIS leader had ominously cautioned Muslims to stay away from Egyptian Christian meetings.

Although the networks have given ample airtime to “marriage equality,” “anti-gay” religious freedom bills and transgender bathroom policies, they’re hardly covering the truly grave oppression of the LGBT community in Chechnya. In this predominantly Muslim Russian province, gay and bisexual men are living on borrowed time. According to one report, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has vowed to eliminate them by the end of May. It has been one month since Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta first published a report on the government’s violence toward the Chechen LGBT community. Yet, stunningly, the evening network shows have given the human rights violations little coverage, devoting only one NBC Nightly News segment to the oppression.
