HBO’s John Oliver Slams Fox News For “Reduc[ing] The Migrant Population” To A Terrorist Stereotype

mediamatters.orgFrom the September 27 edition of HBO’s Last Week Tonight:

JOHN OLIVER: And here in the U.S., some in the media have chosen to reduce the migrant population to one simple stereotype.

KRISTIN FISHER: A new video sufaces online showing why some are worried Europe is opening its doors to potential terrorists. Those are reportedly Muslim refugees on a train in Europe, chanting “Allahu Akbar,” or “God is great.” Now, to be clear, we’re not saying that any of those people are terrorists or in any way affiliated with a terror group, but it does highlight just how many of these refugees who are fleeing violence in Iraq and Syria are Muslim.
