More of that special kind of "understanding"
Well, He-LLOO FAUX News, home of the bottomless cup of stupid!
This time it's a film on TEH ISLAMONAZIVIK MENACE that was too je nai ce quois for PBS to air:
The documentary, originally titled "Islam vs. Islamists," was produced by ABG Films with $675,000 in public funds from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was originally slated to run earlier this year as part of PBS' "America at a Crossroads" series.
The film follows moderate Muslims who have challenged the "Islamists" who espouse a more radical view of their religion. The film shows the Islamists advocating, among other things, the imposition of Sharia law on Muslims in the West, the stoning of women who commit adultery, and even violence and terrorism.
"Islam vs. Islamists" will be seen in its entirety as part of an all-new FOX News Channel special. The 90-minute FOX program, called "Inside Islam: Faith vs. Fanatics," includes interviews with "Islam vs. Islamists" director and producer Martyn Burke and executive producer Frank Gaffney. It will be broadcast at 9 p.m. ET on Saturday, Oct. 20.
Burke and Gaffney told FOX News they didn't set out to make a conservative documentary, but rather one that portrays the plights of some moderate Muslims since Sept. 11.
Oh, I'm sure, in Mr. Burke's case, they didn't, but Frank Gaffney?
Neo-con, signer of the original PNAC document, author of War Footing: 10 Steps America Must Take to Prevail in the War for the Free World, and a guy who was evidently too ideological for Grover Norquist, which is saying a lot.
And the (as FAUX describes him) "Islamism expert Alex Alexiev", who also contributed to the film?
Yet another one who has that special understanding of Islam, evidently, given his work for National Review Online, Middle East Forum, and Frontpage Magazine, and his contributions to the Family Security Matters website with titles like "If Liberals Win, America’s Islamists Will Have Reasons to Celebrate" and The New York Times: Shilling for the Islamists?.
Plus, he's the Vice President for Research at the Center for Security Policy - of which Frank Gaffney just happens to be the President.
No, I'm sure those two "didn't set out to make a conservative documentary", nope, nuh-huh.
(BTW, I don't pretend to be a "journalist" looking stuff like this up. I'm a schmuck with a Blogger account and a copy of Google.
And that's my point - if I can search on Teh Gazoogle for 45 frickin' seconds and come up with evidence that "Islamism experts" and "Web sites that analyze terrorism" are little more than extensions of the LGF/Crazy Pammy/101st Keyboarders axis, why the hell can't CNN or FAUX do it?)
