Islam vs. Islamists: Trailer Online

For those of you who are interested in seeing the trailer for the documentary about moderate Islamists that PBS axed, click here...Hot Air has it.

Titled Islam vs. Islamists, it was intended to be a part of a Federal project named Crossroads, which is supposed to "enhance public understanding of terrorism, homeland security and other crucial issues in the post 9/11 era." (See this Newsbusters post for more background.) Apparently, there are some "cruicial issues" that don't bear closer scrutiny in the hallowed PC halls of PBS.

PBS is funded by our tax dollars. The makers of Islam vs. Islamists received a federal grant to help them produce it. PBS execs, who complained just a couple of years ago that they were being forced to "toe a more conservative line," evidently doesn't see a problem with this decision. We deserve not only to see a film we all helped produce, but PBS needs to know that its purpose is not to serve as an echo chamber for the liberal elites who populate it. Nor is its purpose to avoid a timely topic just because it might make special interest groups like CAIR throw a hissy fit.

Contact PBS by either using this contact form, or by sending a letter to:

Public Broadcasting Service

Arlington, VA 22202

Frankly, I think it's time for PBS to be cut loose from the government's apron strings and try its wings in the free market. Until that happens, we can at least let them know when we're unhappy with how they are spending our hard-earned cash.

Public Brainwashing Service?

Why would they show the truth? Better to keep people in the dark so they don't realize the true nature of the threat posed by Islamo-fascism.

I can't remember how much PBS gets from the government, but it is less than I thought at the time that I looked it up. Regardless of the amount, they should either be unbiased (impossible for "journalists" of the liberal bent) or refuse all tax money.
