<p>In covering the failed terrorist attack at a Prophet Mohammad cartoon event in Texas, NBC neglected to describe the two gunmen on Monday evening as <strong>&ldquo;Islamic extremists&rdquo; </strong>or<strong> &ldquo;terrorists&rdquo; </strong>while all three English networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) prominently touted the Southern Poverty Law Center&rsquo;s (SPLC) description of AFDI as an<strong> &ldquo;anti-Muslim&rdquo;</strong> or <strong>&ldquo;anti-Islamic&rdquo; &ldquo;hate group.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>NBC Nightly News interim anchor Lester Holt declared in a tease that<strong> &ldquo;gunmen&rdquo;</strong> had<strong> &ldquo;opened fire at an anti-Islamist event in Texas&rdquo;</strong> and later before correspondent Jacob Rascone&rsquo;s report that &ldquo;<strong>[i]t happened at a Dallas suburb where a group the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled an anti-Islamic hate group was holding a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest.&rdquo;</strong></p>
