    What could go wrong?

    If were a conspiracy theorist, I might suggest that this is a brilliant way to force the Fairness Doctrine.

    I'm having a difficult time trying to detect your spin on this one.

    Well I'm not a conspiracy theorist. But it would not be too far of a stretch to predict there might be some anti-semitic propaganda in this programming. And if and when it is aired, there will be calls for censorship. And once that can of worms is opened...

    I've seen some of these Islamic "children's" shows. "Jews are apes and pigs" is a common theme. I'll see if I can find a youtube later.

    So are you in favor of censorship of these programs?

    Or are you a muslim-sympathizing anti-semite?

    I am in favor of decency - esp. when it comes to childrens television. Call it what you will.

    Do you have a problem with children hearing an anti muslim message?

    So you would prefer that Al Jazeera Childrens Television Network be banned from the airwaves?

    Would you advocate for a Federal banning, or state by state?

    Would it also be fair to assume that you don't trust that parents can make a decision about what their children are watching?
