CBS Edited Out Harsh Critique of Obama, U.S. 'Militarism' by Muslim Focus Group

Newsbusters:

Zaid Jilani of the leftist website The Intercept is taking apart Friday’s CBS panel discussion on Muslims in America: “two Muslim Americans who took part in the group complained that CBS edited out parts of the discussion where they raised their own concerns — including critiques of U.S. militarism, surveillance and entrapment.”

They also said that Frank Luntz, “the right-wing pollster who led the focus group, silenced members of the group when they criticized discriminatory U.S. government policies.” They ripped into Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but CBS wanted its own tidy narrative of patriotic Muslims who have no problem with this president.

The focus group went for about an hour, and only four tightly edited minutes were aired on Friday. On Face the Nation on Sunday, they ran another four minutes -- some of it the same. What was different was Luntz demanding people use a phrase to describe Trump. "Worse than Voldemort," said one. "Psychopath," said another. This is what CBS wanted to show.

When Luntz asked the group how they respond to attacks such as the recent one in San Bernardino, New York City activist Amelia Noor-Oshiro (pictured above) told The Intercept she asked Luntz “Why don’t you ask that to people who actually commit acts of terror? Why don’t you ask that to White America who are responsible for a majority of domestic terror attacks?” That leftist talking point didn’t make it on air. (Noor-Oshiro was the one spouting CAIR statistics on air.)
