The Learning Channel (TLC) recently launched a program titled “All-American Muslim.” Whether what is profiled in the series is indicative of all, most or some Muslims in America is open to debate.
According to various news reports, the show’s launch was welcomed with favorable ratings, which then began to decline with every passing episode, to the point that one could reasonably say the show’s ratings were “in the tank.”
Lowe’s Home Improvement was one of the initial advertisers of the show. As the show’s ratings plummeted, Lowe’s made the decision to pull its advertising. This is not an unusual business decision for a company like Lowe’s. After all, the whole idea of advertising is to reach viewers. If there are no viewers, what’s the point of spending the advertising dollars?
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism trial ever in the history of the U.S. and a Muslim Brotherhood front group connected to the terrorist organization Hamas, responded with fury to the Lowe’s decision. According to CAIR, such a decision could only have been motivated by anti-Muslim sentiments.
