CAIR exposed. Media without excuse ~ By Joseph Farah

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah By Joseph Farah Posted: January 25, 2010 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2010 When WND Books published "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," a devastating expos√© of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, my company was quite certain of a couple of things:
  • the book would almost certainly result in some sort of frivolous lawsuit by CAIR in a desperate attempt to salvage its reputation as a "Muslim civil rights group";
  • the thoroughly documented book based partly on a daring undercover operation inside CAIR would finally result in making the media and public aware of the group's standing as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator and U.S. front for the Muslim Brotherhood;
Well, we got our frivolous lawsuit. But never in my worst nightmares about the timidity and political correctness of the establishment press could I have imagined the way every co-called news organization in America would collectively run and hide – ignoring the book's explosive and meticulous research and keeping critical national security information from the public. Even though Glenn Beck of Fox News was a target of CAIR, he ignored the book. Even though Bill O'Reilly was a target of CAIR, he ignored the book – and, even worse, kept inviting members of the group to appear on his top-rated show without confronting them on any of the material. Not one Fox News show has to date shown any interest in the book or the monumental First Amendment suit it inspired. Not one CNN show has acknowledged the book or the lawsuit. Not one NBC, CBS or ABC news show has touched on it. The Associated Press has ignored it. The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times and every other newspaper in America has failed to report on it. Out of fear or journalistic compromise, the media have taken a collective powder. It's a scandal almost as big as what the book itself has revealed. We don't have a free press in America. Apparently, we don't even have the vestige of a free press in America. That's my only conclusion. But it gets worse. Since the publication of the book, the lawsuit filed by CAIR has resulted in some dramatic developments and new disclosures. Last week, WND (and only WND) reported that 12,000 pages of internal CAIR documents captured by researchers during their investigation and sought by CAIR in the lawsuit were instead turned over to the FBI, which deemed them significant enough to subpoena them after a U.S. judge ordered they be returned to the group. Did that stir any curiosity by the media? No. READ FULL STORY >
