WND Throws Another Tantrum
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah seems to think that Fox News has an obligation to cover whatever silly stuff WorldNetDaily publishes.

Last October, Farah whined becuase Fox wouldn't cover the WND-published anti-CAIR book to his satisfaction, even though the anti-Muslim bias of the book's authors is more than clear to everyone, even Fox. Now WND is taking a more histrionic approach to said whining.

Farah gives it another shot in his Jan. 11 column, this time expressing anger and jealousy that CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper has been on Fox News while he hasn't, suggesting that this is because a Saudi businessman who has donated to CAIR is also an investor in Fox News' parent, News Corp. Because of this, Farah writes, "Fox just isn't the news organization many of you think and hope it is."

Thisis accompanied by an unbylined Jan. 11 article that begins this way:

Long a reliably patriotic media source in the war on terror, Fox News may now be among news outlets who have fallen under the spell of the Council on American-Islamic Relations' propaganda machine.

"We own the media," CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper privately brags, according to a source currently working inside the aggressive Islamist lobby group.

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly last week invited the TV-savvy Hooper on his show to debate passenger profiling, the second guest appearance by the CAIR spokesman in a month. At the end of the segment, O'Reilly thanked Hooper and called him a "stand-up guy," sending shockwaves through the conservative blogosphere.

So it's patriotic to give airtime to Muslim-haters?

Like a 2-year-old, WND likes to throw tantrums when it doesn't get what it wants. That's basically what's happening here.
