Selective fairness: Fox News on Egypt
CAIR-Chicago | December 11, 2012
There is actually some truth to the claim that Fox News is “Fair and Balanced.” The catch though, is that such treatment only is given to those who subscribe to the network’s right-wing ideology. Anyone else is going to find themselves out of luck.


Actions speak louder than words: The West’s role in international arms trade
CAIR-Chicago | December 10, 2012 | William von Schrader, Government Affairs Intern
In recent memory, the West, led by the U.S., has intervened in several cases to rid a country of an authoritarian government and put in its place a more democratic system. However, there is also a long track record of propping up regimes, for strategic and economic reasons, that embody everything the West claims to stand against.


Letter to the Editor: USA Today, what’s in a name?
CAIR-Chicago | December 10, 2012 | Dartunnoro Clark, Communications Intern
In a recent article titled “Israel warns against Palestinian U.N. bid,” dated on November 29th, 2012, USA Today failed to administer a culturally sensitive report, which I find reprehensible by way of lazy journalism.
