Fox News has a long history of Islamophobia and ginning up outrage against Muslims. It's also no secret that they are not fans of The New York Times.
So it's no surprise that Fox News leapt on an op-ed published last week in the Times with the title, "Don't Fear Islamic Law in America." The op-ed argued that recent efforts by certain states to outlaw Sharia, or Islamic law, "fosters a hostile environment that will stymie the growth of America's tolerant strand of Islam."
Fox News, however, interpreted the op-ed's conclusion as the Times' calling for "America ... to embrace Sharia law," as Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy said. On today's show, Doocy invited conservative blogger Pamela Geller to bash the Times op-ed and fearmonger about pending Sharia doom.
