The media is not that concerned with suppressing incidents. It is concerned with suppressing pattern awareness.

Real patterns are replaced with false patterns. Every Muslim terrorist attack is met with media chatter about an Islamophobic backlash. The backlash never materializes, but it doesn't need to.
The mere repetition of it does the trick and sets the pattern. It tells readers that the attack is the incident, but the backlash is the pattern. The attack is only an incident and not characteristic of Muslims while the backlash is a pattern and characteristic of our bigotry and intolerance. - - Sultan Knish: Patterns and Incidents

Sure were a lot of fake hate crime reports though. Every time there's a big terrorist attack there's a wave of fake muslim attacks and abuse.
