The examples just keep coming... Dutch Newspaper Office Hit By Flaming Truck in 'Deliberate' Attack per Breitbart

This Breitbart report starts scarily enough:

'A van was driven into the offices of a right-wing Dutch newspaper in Amsterdam Tuesday morning, bursting into flames and causing significant damage in what is being called an attack on the news organisation.

The Dutch police said the strike was a "deliberate action" and revealed a manhunt was underway after a suspect managed to escape the scene.


Security footage of the attack released by the newspaper shows the van driving into the glass wall at speed, but only causing limited damage.

The driver of the van then appears to reverse the truck away to make another attempt to ram the building, stalling the vehicle in the process. After his second attempt to ram the vehicle through into the building, the driver disembarks, wearing a heavy hooded coat and carrying a plastic bag. Igniting some form of explosive in the back of the truck, the man then flees on foot. No arrests have been made.

No one was injured but flames reportedly rose to 50 feet high and there is "considerable" damage to the building which houses the country's best selling paper.'

Why would the Netherlands' best selling newspaper be attacked, and by whom? 

'The paper, which has a conservative and populist style, has previously published images of the Islamic prophet Mohammed after the Danish cartoon scandal and received a bomb threat in 2006 after doing so.' 

Ah, now it makes sense. 

Look in vain for coverage of this truck attack and attempted bombing on the BBC, not newsworthy enough? 

At the end of the Breitbart report I found another shocking piece of news that the BBC decided wasn't worthy of reporting:

'Just last week, an Amsterdam building housing two other publications, the Panorama and Nieuwe Revu, was attacked with a rocket launcher. A 41-year-old man was arrested for that attack, in which no one was injured.' 

The BBC disgust me on a daily basis. They have decided that reporting the news is less important than pushing certain narratives and consequently suppressing news that goes against their agreed narratives.
