HOST MEGYN KELLY ASKS CAIR REP TO COMMENT ON RADICAL ISLAM, WHILE NEGLECTING CAIR'S OWN TIES TO RADICAL ISLAM
(New York, NY) On Friday, May 7, 2010, Fox News' show America Live featured a representative from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that was founded by Hamas operatives and has been named by the U.S. government as a party to the financing of Hamas.
During the show, host Megyn Kelly asked CAIR's National Legislative Director Corey Saylor to comment about radical Muslims who threatened the creators of the cartoon South Park with violence. Kelly neglected to mention that CAIR, itself, is associated with radical Islam.
Various CAIR representatives have made a number of appearances on Fox News shows as guests without mention of the group's ties to Hamas or terrorist financing.
Chairman of Americans Against Hate (AAH) Joe Kaufman stated, "It is apparent that Fox News and its shows' hosts wish to legitimize CAIR by giving the pro-terrorist group a forum to speak. This has happened too many times in the recent past to be given a pass as a small error in judgment. If Fox wishes to be considered a station of integrity, it will end this dangerous trend immediately."
