I was blown away by this special comment. In light of all the fuss that has stirred up since word of the construction of a Muslim ‘Mosque’ was spread, the mainstream media was business as usual, i.e. not getting the accurate facts out to the public.
It’s not that hard, really. Watch Keith do it here.
There isn’t going to be a mosque near ground zero, because of two main facts which Keith brought to light. First, the group which purchased that property is going to build an Islamic community center, very different from a place of Muslim worship. Secondly, the property is nowhere near ground zero; it is a couple blocks over, and view of ground zero is blocked by buildings if one stands at that property.
It is hard for me – and I’d like to think for many – not to be jaded to see the media be so politically-driven and convoluted with their facts. In recent months we’ve seen the debacle with Shirley Sherrod and now this. My fingers are cross that at least some news commentators can get things right.
