News networks continue covering the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy, and now are following Bill O’Reilly’s path with reports that New York construction workers are absolutely refusing to work on the proposed community center. Unfortunately they just can’t get any of them to say that on camera.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure that there actually are many, many construction workers who don’t want to work on this project for whatever reason. You have to admit though, that these are some fairly disappointing news reports. You can just imagine the Fox 5 news crew’s discussion where they realized they had to settle on the guy who noncommittally said “Ummmm…yeah, I guess” when asked if he’d refuse to work on the Park51 project. In fact, one of the only new pieces of information I got out of either of these reports is that there are currently Muslim prayer services going on at the location as we speak.
So, yeah, maybe news outlets can wait to cover the “Ground Zero Mosque construction” story until something actually happens.
