The news stories covering the Muslim and christian faith depicts more violence, terrorist, and overzealous religious behavior and gets most of the attention because there is a larger audience for stories on such religions. I often find the coverage on other faiths such as Buddhism only appear when monks are protesting some government. Recently, the protests led by monks in Myanmar, the self-conflagration by monks during the Vietnam war, and the Tibetan independence movement have gain the most coverage. From these news stories i feel as though the Buddhist faith is constantly in a political struggle for rights and freedom. I also feel as though the media will only cover the Buddhist religion when there something shocking happens or if it involves someone famous.
