As a mainstream news outlet, I was shocked to see images of a dead gay man with blood on the pavement, and another image of a gay man falling to his death, blindfolded. I didn't think mainstream news outlets showed such things, as all of the beheading videos made by ISIS were not shown and the still-shots were carefully chosen with no blood or gore.

These days we need evidence of the horrors - the story is not enough. It's not just pics or it didn't happen - it's pics or I can't feel like it really happened

More interesting to me is how ISIS manages to concentrate heavily on the western hot-button issue of gay rights, like that is what ISIS believes is the root evil inside Islam.
Its not that interesting when you understand the tenants of their extremism....No gays, no adultery, no apostates, convert or die, or die anyway if you are muslim and extremist enough....
Theyve video taped themselves killing people that fit into every single one of those categories...
So they arent "focusing" on anything for the west, they are video taping how they deal out death based on their own belief system...
Its not rocket science to figure out that eventually they would release videos of what they do to gay people
This isnt for Americas hot buttons, this is to show the world they will kill for what they believe....
dont make it too complicated
