What Stewart misses - and what Caton has failed to adequately enunciate - is that the Imam featured heavily in the program is a terrorist-supporting extremist. Husham Alhusayni supports Hezbollah and the reality about how he runs his mosque in Dearborn, MI is far different from how he is portrayed in the television program. The argument is not that TLC is refusing to play to stereotypes. The argument - and the truth - is that it is portraying radicals as moderate.
There will be much more on Alhusayni coming out in the next few days.
