“Fox network to balance anti-Muslim slant of ’24’,” from AP, with thanks to all who sent in this and similar stories:
In response to the portrayal of Muslims on Fox’s hit show, “24,” the network is offering its stations two public service announcements that show Muslims in a positive light.
The announcements were produced by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, with whom Fox representatives met Wednesday. The 30- and 60-second spots showcase a diverse group of individuals, who in turn share personal descriptions and identify themselves as American Muslims.
Each announcement ends with the statement: “Muslims are part of the fabric of this great country and are working to build a better America.”
What does “working to build a better America” mean? Would CAIR care to define it? Might it have anything to do with Sharia? Why is Fox caving in to an organization that has seen three of its officials arrested on terror-related charges? Why is Fox kowtowing to a group founded by former members of the Islamic Association for Palestine, a Hamas group?
This WND story (again, thanks to all) on the Fox dhimmitude gives some of the background on CAIR: “CAIR presses Fox TV on Muslim terrorists.”
