Adobo Chronicles Hosting Free Media Seminar on ‘Terrorism’

imageSILIC0N VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles ) – The Silicon Valley-based Adobo Chronicles is pleased to announced that it is sponsoring and hosting a free seminar for the media on the issue of terrorism coverage. The seminar will be held at the San Jose Convention Center on Monday, January 4, 2016.

The seminar will help media companies develop skills to be able to distinguish between terrorism and peaceful protests.

The Chronicles decided to sponsor the event after major news networks like ABC  and CNN  as well as the Associated Press (AP) reported on the take-over by armed militants of a federal building in Oregon to protest the conviction and jail sentence of an eastern Oregon ranching family for arson.

The media companies, who are quick to label any violent incidents, especially those perpetrated by people with foreign ties, as terrorist activities, have treated the Oregon incident as nothing but a peaceful protest.

Media companies interested in sending their editors and reporters to this free seminar are asked to register at AdoboChronicles.com

SAN BERNARDINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – When we think of “terrorists,” we think of men or women armed with guns indiscriminately shooting at innocent people.  But CNN and MSNBC displayed — on live television — a new kind of terrorism, shooting their cameras at the items that remained in the apartment of suspected San Bernardino shooting gunmen Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

The journalists sifted through children’s toys, household items and identification cards not just of the deceased suspects but of possible innocent individuals.

There were conflicting reports on whether or not the apartment landlord or the FBI allowed the reporters into the apartment. It is assumed that the apartment remained a crime scene at the time of the media terrorist attack.

It wasn’t clear whether the perpetrators were radicalized journalists or were simply clueless of journalistic principles and ethics..
