What can you tell us about Hispanic Muslims?
At the 2003 Emmy Awards, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show
showed the audience various news clips of anchors asking
experts about monkey pox and dirty bombs.
He wanted to show the audience how ridiculous real news can be.
He said that cable news stations should get some kind of award
for their use of fear and speculation.
The news clips were capped off with
NBC News’ Chris Jansing seriously asking an expert,
“What can you tell us about Hispanic Muslims?”
Afterward, Stewart paused then asked,
“What can you tell us about Hispanic Muslims?
Are they nocturnal? Carnivores?”
Who are Hispanic Muslims?
Who are Muslims?
What is Islam?
