Nytt

Historien om den hijabkledte Yasmin Zaweid, som ble angrepet av en Trump-tilhenger på subwayen i New York, gikk verden rundt sist uke. Men så viste det seg at hele historien var fabrikkert: Zaweid diktet opp historien for å dekke over at hun var på ulovlig date med en kristen gutt.

Men dét var ikke mediene interessert i. De foretrakk historien om «hvit mann angriper hijab-jente».

De samme mediene som kritiserer fake news, driver selv villedning av leserne. Når de fant en story som passer deres behov, ønsker de ikke å diskreditere den.

 

Zaweid var nok ikke klar over hvor stor oppmerksomhet den falske historien hennes ville få:

After her story made international headlines, it came out last week that a hijab-wearing Muslim who said she was harassed and threatened on a New York subway by drunk Donald Trump supporters actually made the whole story up.

But Yasmin Seweid doesn’t seem to be a cynical hoaxer; she apparently made up the story to avoid the wrath of her strict Muslim father over her being out late and having a non-Muslim boyfriend.

Faren hennes har barbert av henne hår og øyenbryn, viste det seg, da hun måtte møte i retten for falsk anmeldelse. Pjmedia.com mener hennes liv kan være i fare.

Yasmin forsvant da storyen hennes ble stor i mediene verden over. Det kan ha vært all oppmerksomheten som reddet henne fra en verre skjebne enn å miste håret.

She may not have been prepared for the media spotlight. Yasmin Seweid is just 18 years old, and perhaps didn’t realize she was giving the establishment propaganda media what it wants most in this world: a case that reinforces their narrative. She gave them a story of an innocent, pious Muslim being victimized by Trump-loving “Islamophobes.” She may have disappeared in a panic over the media attention for a story she knew was false.
