This propaganda is on the Council on American-Islamic Relations' watch list. Because, that's why.

What Do The Dallas Morning News and the Weekly Reader Have in Common?

Less than two weeks after kicking off its "nationwide discussion of 'Islamophobia'" in Dallas, the Washington-based nonprofit Council on American-Islamic Relations held a similar event yesterday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. But a reporter from The Washington Times was asked to leave the shindig, because CAIR has identified the paper as being "anti-Muslim," according to David Keene. He's the chairman of the American Conservative Union, which blames CAIR itself for anti-Muslim sentiment around the country. Also on CAIR's shitlist, according to The Times' story:

The Dallas Morning News, the Tampa Tribune, the New Republic magazine, U.S. News & World Report, and the Weekly Reader, a popular newspaper for schoolchildren.

We know why CAIR has it in for The News. Two words: "Rod" and "Dreher." But the Weekly Reader? C'mon, Highlights we could understand -- Goofus and Gallant are a couple of fear-mongering xenophobes. --Robert Wilonsky
