Say this for Peter King’s hearings this week on “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and that Community’s Response;” it is certainly generating the guy a lot of press coverage.
King himself has a full run-down of the positive press coverage on his website, and he just posted onto his Youtube page a medley of sorts of his responses to the negative press coverage.
The whole thing is worth watching to the end, but one point gets made early on that has been overlooked: King apparently has been given extra security detail after receiving what he termed threats from overseas.
Meanwhile, the watchdog group Media Matters for America is out with a report detailing what they say is Fox News’ cheerleading over the radicalization hearings, including pundit and former George W. Bush press secretary Dana Perino saying on air, “if there was a hearing on radicalization amongst Christianity,” there “would have been no protesters yesterday in Times Square, for sure” and saying that all of the domestic terror attacks of the last 15 years have come from Muslims.
