CBC's World_At_Six chose to make the top story about a Canadian
injuring a policeman at a US airport. Wow! But why was this the top
world news at six?

My guess. It furthers their agenda to hype "terrorism" stories and, in
this case, the criminal did utter "Allahu Akbar" thus getting in an
Islamophobia reinforcer.

With plenty of killings in the world today, a knife attack hardly
merits a mention at all in 30 minutes of news.

Have you noticed the media facination over whether a crime is declared
to be an act of terrorism? Shouldn't much matter should it? They are
crimes, period.

No, quite the opposite.
