“Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s official religion of America”
Ben Stein has an interesting and troubling observation in his latest column titled, "Something Is Wrong" ...
Don't look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM's official religion of America.
Now, it's not just that no one bats an eye at the amazing truth that the United States is beaming TV ads all over Pakistan apologizing for a derogatory Internet trailer for a nonexistent movie demeaning the being that Muslims call "The Prophet Mohammed." No one in the MSM even slightly hints that doing the kowtow in the same country that sheltered Osama bin Laden to a group that reveled in, delighted in the terrorism against American civilians and still provides the framework for the terrorist Haqqani network, might be humiliating and an insult to the memory of the great Americans who were murdered just last week in Libya.
No, we just take it in stride that our President and our Secretary of State will apologize to the people who hate us and want us dead. That's not what I am referring to.
I am referring to something worse: Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it's just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.
I see this in other news outlets and on TV, too. Sober-looking newsmen and newswomen mention Mohammed as The Prophet Mohammed. No ifs, ands or buts. I hear it on the BBC World Service, too.
Now, if Muslims want to believe that Mohammed is The Prophet, God bless them. Fine and dandy. If anyone wants to believe that, good luck to him or her. But why does our mainstream media here in the USA, an overwhelmingly Christian country, refer to Islam's prophet as "The Prophet"?
Have you ever seen any major newspaper here in the USA refer to Jesus Christ as "The Son of God, God Incarnate, The Lord Jesus Christ"? Can you imagine the New York Times running a story about a crucifix resting in urine at an "art gallery" as an offense against "The Lord Jesus, Son of God"? Can you imagine any large newspaper in this country running a story about the Pope and referring to him as "The Holy Father, The Bridge Between Heaven and Earth"? Or about Mary, as "Holy Mary, Mother of God"? It would never happen.
But somehow, probably because the people writing the articles and editing them or the producers on TV news shows fear being beheaded -- and who doesn't? -- we have adopted in our media the Muslim assertion that Mohammed is The Prophet while giving other religious figures the back of our media hand.
This is frightening. We are not supposed to be doing obeisance to a religious group that has many adherents who want us dead. We are not, as journalists, supposed to be labeling anyone as "The" Prophet. But somehow, it's happening. The MSM has become a voice for Islam.

Hmm, this might partly explain the MSM's resistance and reluctance to criticize the prophet Obama.
Get it? Muslims have no personal responsibility for their actions/behavior, so we have to outlaw pissing them off. And as for Al Jazeera's praising of Obama and his UNGA speech, this is the part of the speech that wiped out what was selected for the above video clip, ‘The Future Must Not Belong To Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam’...
The man habitually speaks out of both sides of his mouth. He supposedly defends free speech, and in the next breath dictates against it. Free speech is not only what you deem acceptable, or that which you agree with. Nor does it give you the right to snuff-out or obliterate the free speech of others. (Note to woman in the video - Vandalism is violent protest.) This same grandiose speaker right now is stomping on the Catholic bishops, and through them the Catholic religion centered in the Vatican, by mandating they provide something that goes completely against their faith and convictions.
