Gplex: I have to agree, that was a very good Bill Maher clip. Thanks for posting it. He is a little too snarky on occasion, but I almost always agree with what he says.

I don't think that's true. Particularly after 9/11. there were a lot of Muslims speaking out against the excesses of radical Islam.

I heard almost nothing along those lines, although I don't doubt that the media would disregard anything positive to say about Muslims, especially after 9/11.

It may have something to do with location. In the NY/NJ metro area, there are a lot of Muslims, and of course there was more coverage of the different aspects of the attacks here than there was in other parts of the country.
