This case study draws into question if the media covers mass killings differently based on the whether the perpetrator is Muslim or non-Muslim. This paper examines the way media covers these incidents through comparrison of two separate shootings at Fort Hood less than 5 years apart. Both the similarities and differences among the media coverage are analyzed as some light is shed on this important discussion.
