ISIS beheadingsA media watchdog says ISIS and its brutal successes dominated news in 2015 despite the best efforts of the media to downplay it.  

ISIS, or the Islamic State, was named the top story of the year after The Associated Press polled U.S. editors and news directors.

Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center says that top ranking shows conservatives are right when they insist that Islamic terror is a dominant issue.

Gainor, Dan (MRC)"That no matter how much the media try to manipulate the news, and try to make it about something else," says Gainor, "when it's a big enough topic they can't change that. It is a reality." 

In fact, five of the "top ten" stories cited by The Associated Press are related to Islamic terror, including the San Bernardino attack and the flood of Muslim migrants into Europe.

If there are more terror attacks in 2016, Gainor predicts that will make the issue a big one in the presidential race.

"And that does not play well for liberals," he says.
