24 was great!

Reader comment on item: "24" and Hollywood's Discovery of Radical Islam

Submitted by Ernie (United States), Jan 10, 2005 at 13:21

It's not that far fetched to think that we have people in this country -- and not only Muslims -- planning things just like in the new episode of 24. It's just that Muslims are doing it all over the world without regard when it's reported on all news channels. Any Muslims against this type of behavior are being very quiet about what's going on. Or maybe they secretly support terrorism and can't stand seeing the end result portrayed on TV.

Bottom line is you can't have it both ways. If you support terror as a means to an end, then you get this type of representation in the media. Thats what free speech is all about.
