Fox & Friends: Ground Zero Mosque
by How to Watch Television `

In his essay on Fox & Friends in How to Watch Television, Jeffrey P. Jones shows how that program turns the morning talk format on its head, performing an "ideological, often hysterical view of the world" that, he argues, impacts and transforms our world in the process. Here Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the organizer of the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque" is pitted against a 9/11 firefighter in an adversarial framing, despite the fact the two are sitting on the same couch.
