To combat anti-Muslim sentiment.

The true story of an American soldier who recently became a Muslim and attacked American soldiers is newsworthy and should be told. But, since the broadcasters also have a directive from the Federal Government to provide a community service, I felt the story should have been followed by a story or thought about all the Arab American Muslims who are fighting for America against Al Qaeda and Saddam.

Wouldn't pairing a story with the first one have been doing a public service and being in the public interest? Or, does that fall under the interfering with freedom of speech and a free press idea to suggest this precaution against stirring up anti-Muslim feelings?

What's your feelings? Remember, the broadcasters had no legal mandate to run a positive Muslim thought after broadcasting that awful story about the traitor.

    Sometimes on Fox, during the chit chat conversation between or after a news story, one of their people said Muslim clerics should stand up and say Al Qaeda is wrong.

    Well, they have. And they even have in Saudi Arabia. They probably do assume that people know better Toadborg. But it wouldn't kill them to mention the Muslims putting their lives on the line...especially regarding Iraq.
