This is a textbook example of why so many people don’t trust the media. When Trump says something they ridicule him. Then they come back later and report the same thing seriously without apologizing for what they said before.
Over a year ago, Trump talked about increases in crime in Sweden due to the refugee population. The New York Times mocked him for it. Now, they’re reporting the story.
The Daily Caller reports:
NYT Gets Around To Reporting On Sweden’s Immigrant Crime Problem, Leaves Out A Few Key Details
The New York Times published a report Sunday on Sweden’s growing problem with immigrant gangs — more than a year after the paper chided President Donald Trump for calling attention to the same worrisome development.
Entitled “Hand Grenades and Gang Violence Rattle Sweden’s Middle Class,” the report examines how weapons of war and clan-like violence have accompanied an influx of immigrants from certain parts of Europe and the greater Middle East.
The story centers on the death of a man in the town of Varby Gard, a once tranquil Stockholm suburb that is now the home base of an increasingly destructive immigrant gang. He was killed in early January when he picked up a mysterious object lying in the street that turned out to be a live hand grenade. The device exploded when he touched it, killing him instantly.
It was one of more than 100 incidents involving military-grade explosives in the Stockholm metro area that police have attributed to an “arms race” among immigrant gangs, reports TheNYT. There were only a few such incidents in Sweden until 2014, but since then, the number of explosions and seizures of grenades has shot up and remained worryingly high.
Last year, when Fox News and Trump noted Sweden's immigrant crime problem, NYT pushed back. Now, NYT reports on Sweden's immigrant crime problem. https://t.co/Wo753MCjtd and https://t.co/aPz5IKKMYo pic.twitter.com/H0pHXfNefc
