As Muslims we have a problem of getting over-emotional when discussing issues of politics, especially with those who disagree. I want to bring to light an example of journalism in this country that shows how to make an anti-war point in a calm and respectful way. It is in a way that we should learn because it teaches us how to deal with people who are quite pro-war in the west. The irony of all ironies is that this excellent example of journalism comes from a Jewish comedian.
The Daily Show (and Colbert Report) to me has seriously become the only beacon of ‘normal’ news in America. They seem to be the only ones who can see through the Nazi like hatred of other ‘journalists’ like Papa Bear.
The first video is with Stephen Hayes, a biographer of Dick Cheney. The second is a video with Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard. Both show excellent candor in interviewing, and expressing your point without getting overly emotional and giving in to their propaganda.
