"At this time last year, as the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks approached, the country was gripped by a pernicious debate over a 'mosque' (really, an Islamic cultural center) near Ground Zero in New York City. Pushback against the project actually began months earlier and was led by a group called Stop Islamization of America, which launched 'Campaign Offensive: Stop the 911 Mosque!' in May 2010. The group’s founder, Pamela Geller, charged that 'this is Islamic domination and expansionism. The location is no accident.' ... Geller and Spencer’s cause was loudly trumpeted by large right-wing media outlets, notably the New York Post and Fox News Channel, both News Corp. properties." (08/29/11)
