Topic: NewsBusters

Media Matters highlights how NewsBusters' Tim Graham attacked Comedy Central's Jon Stewart for being "shameless" in criticizing conservatives' freak-out over the Islamic community center planned near the former site of the World Trade Center when he works for a network that "mocks Jesus and Christians relentlessly, but censors whenever the radical Muslims threaten them." Graham seems to have forgotten that NewsBusters praised Stewart for criticizing Comedy Central's refusal to air a "South Park" episode centered on Muhammad.

UPDATE: Graham responds in a cowardly fashion by refusing to let the name "Media Matters" cross his lips, bashing Keith Olbermann for repeating the story by "playing rip-and-read from certain Hillary Clinton-founded Fox-and-Rush watchdogs." Graham also insists that Stewart, on the "South Park" issue, "lightly made fun of the bosses, and then lightly mocked the Muslim death-threateners with Jewish-deli-and-Frisbee jokes." And the singing of the "F-You" song actually "mock[ed] Gospel choirs," not censorious Muslims.
