Has it been a slow week at the Buddhist Channel?

Has it been a slow week at the Buddhist Channel? Truth be told, I'm not sure what would constitute a "slow week" over there, but a recent article just posted caught my attention in a way best described as déjà vu:

Déjà vu, from French, literally "already seen", is the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has been experienced in the past, regardless of whether it has actually happened --- well, in this case, it actually has happened before because this article is just a rehash of a previous one from 2013:

The author's name is Raymond Ibrahim and he's made a living decrying media bias in the Western press, that it's pro-Islamic, ect., but the man is no stranger when it comes to being on the receiving end of similar accusations himself, that he's equally bias in what he says and what he fails to mention:
