Since Howard decided to cutoff Michael before he could respond to that dope Cenk, here is Michael's appropriate response:
On a recent CNN appearance, I confronted the obscenely foolish liberal argument that insists that contemporary Christian terrorism represents even more of a threat than Islamic terrorism—citing the shameful slaying of a handful of abortion doctors as proof.
First, the incidents of murder in the anti-abortion cause brought fewer than a dozen deaths in the last three decades, while victims of Islamo-Nazi terror—most of them Muslims, by the way—can be counted in the tens of thousands. Second, no nations or prominent church groups promote or applaud violence in the name of Jesus, but several nations and many leading voices in Islam endorse violence in the name of Allah. Radical Islam stands alone among contemporary religious sects in suggesting that the slaughter of innocent women and children in suicide attacks will bring you closer to God.
It's too bad Howie's weekly so-called critical look at the media chooses to focus almost exclusively on Fox News and MSNBC, which are, of course, CNN's chief cable competitors. The program would be so much better if it looked at all media outlets – ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS – and, most importantly, CNN itself. Another improvement would be to select guests who are themselves observers of the media and not participants. Academics and analysts like David Folkenflik and David Carr, people whose job it is to analyze and critique the media, would be much more insightful guests than opinion talkers like Cenk Uyger and Michael Medved.
Cenk Uygur got schooled during this segment. Micheal Medved smacked him down with some real truth to power. I saw that Howard had to put the clamps down on all of his guests before it turned into a donnybrook. Then in the next segment, Uygur sounded rather bumbling and incoherent. I think that first segment seriously neutered him.
So abortion doctors being murdered aren't killed because of a religious ideology? I don't understand your point. You said you agree with Michael but provided no evidence...
