1. 16-year old Pakistani girl Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by the Taliban for her critique of religious fundamentalism and her defense of girls’ education. Her heroic struggle instantly made her an icon of secular liberals across Europe and the US, earning her a place on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show and a private audience with President Obama. But, for some reason, a very important part of Malala’s political message (including her critique of Obama’s drone strikes in Pakistan) is systematically filtered out by the selective hearing of the liberal Western media.
