NBC plans to create the news. Michelle Malkin reports on an e-mail she received which shows that NBC is looking to create a story. Dateline wants to video tape muslim men as they attend sporting events, such as a NASCAR race, to document the reaction of those around them.
Nice. NBC’s and Dateline’s objective journalists seem to think there are a lot of bigots at NASCAR races and are expecting to hit pay dirt with examples of anti-Muslim, anti-Arab behavior.
