MRC's Graham Unhappy That CNN Employs A Muslim
Topic: Media Research Center

An Aug. 9 NewsBusters post by the Media Research Center's Tim Graham essentially boils down to a single complaint: CNN hired a Muslim.

Graham starts off by grousing that a CNN guest who spoke about Ramadan was a CNN employee, booking director Maria Ebrahimji. Graham claims that Ebrahimji "has embraced her role as a Muslim advocate inside CNN" and further complains that she "serves on several boards" inside CNN: "Vice Chair of the CNN Diversity Council and on the Turner Broadcasting Corporate Responsibility Council and Green Task Force."

The rest of the post is excerpts from other CNN appearances by Ebrahimji and a quote from the website for a book she wrote "compiling stories of Muslim-American women." Aside from an incorrect claim that Jews "sacrifice for Christ," Graham doesn't contradict or criticize what she has to say.

The only important thing here is that CNN hired a Muslim, and that's apparently too much for Graham's right-wing sensitivities.
