UPDATE: I just did this highly contentious show and found out that it wasn't that NPR had any integrity, it was that CAIR refused to appear with me. Typical. I hope to have the podcast soon. This was a wildly biased, particularly vicious attack fest. I must find this online: you have to hear it in order to understand what we're up against.
I was scheduled to appear on NPR tomorrow to debate Hamas-CAIR's Zahra Billoo on our AFDI bus campaign and the Hamas-CAIR jihad propaganda barrage, but the CAIR rep, in their typical Islamic supremacist fashion, demanded that they not be challenged, questioned, or debated. Their Big Lie had to stand alone. This was too much even for NPR, which finally got Dr. Jess Ghannam, a local professor who is also a board member of the National Association of Arab Americans. He has agreed to be on the entire program with me (so we can have a real discussion, from 12:30-1 pm Eastern).
The format will go this way: City Supervisor David Chiu will join us for a few minutes to talk about the city’s official stance on the ads, then they’ll let him go and the host Michael Krasny will turn the discussion to Jess Ghannam and me. Since it's a live show, they may also take (pre-screened) listeners’ calls and emails to get listeners’ feedback.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 — 12:30 AMAnti-Jihad Ads Return to SF Muni Buses
For the second time in a year, San Francisco Muni buses are featuring
ads critical of Islam. The latest ones feature pictures of and quotes
from Osama bin Laden and the Times Square car bomber. Local officials
and Muslim groups have denounced the ads — but the city has refused to
pull them on free speech grounds. We talk to critics of the ads, and the
woman behind the campaign.
The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
