I am a fairly new listener to your station and usually enjoy each segment. During this morning's piece on the Muslim couple who are to appear in a reality series on TLC, I was shocked to hear some of the questions put to the guests;
1) "We won't meet any of your terrorist cell friends?"
2) "So, we won't see anyone in a cage?"
3) "So, you guys discuss Israel?"
I found these questions to be rudely stereotypical and completely disrepectful of both the guests and your listeners.
For the record, I am neither a Muslim, a terrorist-cell member, a cage dweller, nor currently engaged in a conversation about Israel. I, too, am an American and prefer to think that a station which is currently doing a fundraiser would do better to not insult its listeners' intelligence with such insulting rhetoric.
