My second critique will be on the coverage of the shooting in Ottowa Canada that left one Canadian dead. The shooter was a self proclaimed Jihadist who acted alone. Due to the fact that he was a Muslim radical the media coverage has been hugely focusing on whether or not he had ties with ISIS.

It almost seems that news outlets are jumping to conclusions or “speculating” about the individual who carried out the horrific crime.

I will be looking at the vernacular and overall style of how to different news sources are covering the incident. I am curios to see if the individual reports tag a unfair generalization on the Muslim faith.
