PBS Cans Documentary

From the Washington Times:

    A 52-minute documentary film exploring the struggles of moderate American Muslims at the hands of their radical brethren has also become a showcase for the struggles between right and left in the news media.

    The producers of “Islam vs. Islamists” say their taxpayer-funded film has been shelved by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in “an ideological vendetta,” and because the production team includes conservative columnist Frank Gaffney Jr., founder of the Center for Security Policy.

The Times piece also points out this:

    Mr. Gaffney, who is columnist for The Washington Times, also had a recent scrape with media-borne complications after he erroneously attributed a quote about the boundaries of wartime treason to Abraham Lincoln in a Feb. 14 column. The quote instead came from Michael Waller in a 2003 article in Insight, a publication of The Times.
