Christian rioting erupts in Belfast

Remember that LGF headline from last month?

Neither do we.

Last month some Unionists rioted in Belfast. Some of them used petrol and blast bombs, resulting in injuries to 80 police. But Charles decided that the religious mayhem in Belfast simply wasn't worth covering.

As opposed to the recent riots in a predominantly Muslim suburb of Paris, which have garnered such LGF headlines as "Fourth Night of Muslim Riots in Paris."

Leaving aside the fact that the riots weren't in Paris at all (how would Charles like if it a riot in Watts were reported as being in El Segundo?), why would he choose to ignore the Belfast riots and focus instead on those other riots in Clichy?

(I think we all know the answer to that one.)
