Does the media CAIR?

I know there a lot of things to keep track of in this complicated world, but you'd think the U.S. news media would make at least a token attempt to keep up with events.

This week, the terrorist linked group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) put out a report on alleged discrimination against Muslims and the Chicago news media, including the Chicago Tribune, ABC 7 Chicago, WBBM-radio and others portrayed the report as if it was written by the PTA.

Not a single media outlet mentioned that CAIR is so suspect that even liberal U.S. Senators like Dick Durbin, Barbara Boxer and Chuck Schumer know to stay away from it. It's not just Illinois media. Ohio reporters failed to cover the Ohio governor's recent overture to CAIR.

To recap, here's what Durbin and Schumer have said about CAIR:

Durbin: "[CAIR is] unusual in its extreme rhetoric and its associations with groups that are suspect."

Schumer: "we know [CAIR] has ties to terrorism"รข€¦"intimate links with Hamas"
And, if that wasn't enough, the U.S. government just named CAIR as an unindicted co-conspirator because of its link to the terrorist group Hamas.

I don't know what the problem is in newsrooms across America. This stuff is all on the Internet. Terrorists are those people who want to kill all Americans and non-Muslims and take over the world. Shouldn't the news media be labeling these people?News outlets don't hesitate to label conservatives.
