I just listened to ABC Radio News Network at the top of the hour. They (ABC) is now referring to Mr. Muhammad simply as Mr. Williams. When did we all agree on this? If the 'socialist democratic' movement in the US has taught me anything at all over the past thirty years, it is that folks ought to be called whatever they want to be called. Remeber the 'African' Family in the M.O.V.E. group in Philadelphia. So, if John wanted to be called 'Muhammad', then who are we to deny him that right? Besides, [b]'Muhammad and Malvo'[/b] just sounds so...I don't know...right?! So let's all continue to use John's chosen name! Eric The(OpenMinded)Hun[>]:)]

I know, [b]ArmdLbrl[/b], that's what I'm watching on TV! It was the ABC News Radio channel that kept referring to him as 'Williams' - even the reporter at the scene called him 'Wiiliams.' I think this will be a good gauge of which news organizations are on target, and which ones are simply in it for the ride, and to promote their agenda. FoxNEWS rocks, simply put!

CNN has even been calling him John Mohammed (or Muhammad or however he spells it) all day.

I dunno what WE ever agreed to it, but it appears that the liberal media wants to downplay the (not just possible, but likely, even) muslim connection. They don't want to admit it was terrorism, plain and simple. FOTBR

It was the sniper who changed his name to Mohammed. Why would the media start calling him by a different name? Are we also going back to "Cassius Clay" and "Lew Alcinder"? Suddenly the media does not respect the right of a person to use his Muslim name.

Cat Stevens is another entertaining piece of work...Peace Train... He called for the fatwa death of Salman Rushdie...my guess is after 09-11 he was partying down with the local immans

Just another example of the media setting the agenda and presenting the "facts" the way they'd like the sheeple to beleive them. I noticed in a press conference on Fox that they(the spokes people on scene) and the Fox news person were NOT calling him Mohammed. How PC. Glad to see they're so concerned with protecting muslim sensibilities and reputation. That idiot Sheppard Smith also wrapped up the news conference by saying the important thing is that the "gun" is now off the streets.[rolleyes]
