<p>[See <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/scott-whitlock/2015/02/12/nbc-ignores-mili…; for more.] NBC&#39;s Today on Thursday ignored the militant atheism and liberalism of a North Carolina man accused of executing three Muslims on Tuesday night. ABC&#39;s Good Morning America and CBS This Morning at least mentioned Craig Stephen Hicks&#39;s hatred of faith, but none of the networks highlighted the individual&#39;s affinity for programs such as the Rachel Maddow show.&nbsp; Today reporter Mark Potter noted that the sister of one of the victims &quot;insists the killings were religiously motivated.&quot; He added that &quot;this case has sparked international attention.&quot; Yet, Potter didn&#39;t offer viewers any explanation about Hicks&#39;s own religious beliefs. In contrast, Good Morning America&#39;s Tom Llamas asserted, &quot;But Hicks openly posted on Facebook his proposed solution to problems in the Middle East: Atheism.&quot;&nbsp; Over on CBS This Morning, Vincente Arenas alerted, &quot;Hicks&#39;s Facebook page includes rants about religions in general and he calls himself an ordained atheist minister who enjoys target practice.&quot;</p>
