The Nov. 28 attack at Ohio State was among 78 attacks White House officials released on a list Monday evening in an effort to support President Donald Trump’s claim that the media under-reports or ignores terrorism related to Muslim radicals.
Earlier on Monday, Trump accused the media of not wanting to cover terrorist attacks related to Muslim radicals, without providing examples or reasoning as to why the media would pursue that route.
“It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported, and in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it,” he said at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida.
To date, The Lantern has published at least 35 articles either about the attack or referencing the attack.
The White House partially walked back his statements, later providing a list of incidents — not all of which have been declared terrorism, but have been referenced as such by the White House — that the administration says didn’t get enough coverage.
At OSU, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, a third-year in logistics management, injured about a dozen people with a knife and a vehicle before being killed by police.
Artan was Muslim, though the FBI has yet to call the event terrorism, or radical-Islamic terrorism. The story dominated local and national news cycles, made front-page news across the country, including in The New York Times and The Washington Post, and received devoted airtime from CNN, ABC and NBC, among others.
The articles are listed below, in chronological order.
