ISIS execution of gays gets attention in social media but not major news coverage

The UK Independent reported a particularly graphic story today of ISIS throwing gay men off a tower, as well as stoning women and "cruficifying" men in "retaliation", story by Adam Withnall, here.  The story has gotten a lot of attention in my own Twitter and Facebook newsfeeds.  Curiously, the story wasn't mentioned on CNN tonight, as it got buried by stories of "No Go Zones" in Europe, in a statement by Bobby Jindal and other Republicans.  I was in Birmingham England in 1982 and noticed nothing unusual at all.

Update: Feb. 15

NBC News has a longer article interpreting this incident, here.
