Between 2006 and 2015, terrorist attacks carried out by Muslim extremists received 357% more press attention in the U.S. than those committed by non-Muslims, reports The Guardian.

Why it matters: A study conducted by the University of Alabama found that attacks by Muslims spurred an average of 105 headlines — especially in national news outlets — compared to just 15 headlines for non-Muslims.
