And it was all because this one liberal actually had the nerve to speak the truth!
It seems that for the mainstream media as long as you are spouting and sticking to the party line you are welcome in the club. But, once you tell a truth that they don't like, no matter what the facts say or how well your thoughts are corroborated, you will be persona non grata.
This is the story of Eric Allen Bell who is a documentary filmmaker and former contributor to progressive publications such as Daily Kos. The work in question was examining the building of a 50,000 sq. ft. mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for a user base that in no way justified that type of size. Unless of course it was being constructed in anticipation of a huge influx of members.
In any event Mr. Bell was a huge proponent for the building of the mosque UNTIL he went down there, filmed for 300+ hours and in addition read a book written by expert and scholar on Islam, Dr. Robert Spencer.
When Mr. Bell subsequently became an opponent of the building of the mosque he suddenly was no longer welcome by the liberal media. This long-time liberal filmmaker was in fact then shunned by this group of "journalists" for being what they termed a right-wing zealot.
In other words, regardless of the facts, the Left knows only the truth as they want it portrayed (see Obamacare).
From an article at Atlas Shrugs by Pamela Geller, here is the story of Eric Allen Bell!
"Eric Allen Bell has been peeling back the layers of the monster mosque in Murfreesboro ..... and, I might add, at great personal risk. He comes to this issue from a unique place. Bell is a documentary filmmaker and had been following the story early on for a pro-mosque film which painted mosque critics as racistislamophobicantimuslimbigots. He was a fixture at court hearings and protests over the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro in 2010. Here some background from Bell..."
