    Dear Ms. Green--

    I am curious to know, after seeing the recent interview with author/researcher Reza Aslan, whether you personally developed the interview framework or if you followed some sort of template provided to you by the Fox news network.  As a graduate of Northwestern's prestigious Medill school of journalism and your extensive journalistic credentials, you must be an extremely accomplished journalist and therefore aware of the complete (and frankly, humiliating) ignorance demonstrated by those interview questions.  To be honest, I have never seen anything like it.  Can a Jew not write about Mohammed?  Is there something wrong with a Christian writing about Moses?  From your interview, it appears that either you (or the network) are entirely unfamiliar with the entire concept of 'academia' and 'research' and are incapable of understanding individuals outside of the hyper-simplified lens of whatever prejudices their ethnic/cultural/religious groups (in this case Muslim) happen to raise.

    I would rather place the responsibilty for this failed on the network rather than think that you are this shockingly unaware of people's ability to research, explore and--indeed-think-- for themselves.  

    I don't necessarily expect a response, but I would be keen to know exactly what you--or the network--were thinking.  Have you watched the interview yourself? Please do.

    All the best,

      What a complete tool.  Or, is it just fool?

      End the wars! Single payer now!
