Oh the double standard! Will the media report? No way!!

As many as 50 Muslim villagers armed with clubs and axes recently attacked a showing of the 'Jesus' film near Sargodha, Pakistan, injuring three part-time evangelists and four Christians in attendance.
Two of the evangelists were said to be seriously injured. The Muslim hardliners also damaged a movie projector, burned reels of the film and absconded with the public address system and donations from Christian viewers in Chak village, about 10 kilometers northeast of Sargodha.

Officers at the Saddr police station refused to register a case against the Muslim assailants, sources said....

The evangelists said a Muslim cleric instigated the Muslim villagers, who were armed with clubs, spades and axes.

We get instead... 

TIGER Woods' decision to withdraw from professional golf due to a sex scandal has raised questions about his future as a magnet for corporate sponsors, with US phone company AT&T saying it was evaluating its ties.
The phone and wireless operator was among the first to respond to the star athlete's admission of marital infidelity and his announcement that he was taking an indefinite hiatus from the sport.

This happens so often anymore that for many it has become "ho hum."

This is how Muslims act in Muslim lands. 

This is what happens when a religion rooted in 7th century Arabian ethics is forced upon the modern world. But think for just a moment. What if there was a "Muhammad" film? Would you expect to hear of Christians with clubs and axes attacking villagers and burning copies of the film?

And if such a thing did happen, what would be the response?

Riots in the streets, if the Danish cartoons were any indication.
Burning buildings and the like.

But will the state-run media point these things out? No, they sit in silence, focused upon Tiger Woods. The double standard is striking.
