The host of aFox News show on Sunday told the Muslim community not to burn people alive and set off bombs if they want a better portrayal in the media.
Fox & Friends Weekend was discussing comments made by actorMandy Patinkin, who said his show Homeland would try to be part of the cure by offering a more positive portrayal of Muslims. In an MSNBC interview, Patinkin noted that this seasons storyline would show that maybe its the… white men in the government and the military establishment that are the bad guys, not the Muslim community.
In a clip posted online by Media Matters, Fox News host Pete Hegseth complained that Homeland was trying to ram political agendas down our throat.
Do we remember who the bombers of the Boston Marathon were? cohost Jon Scott asked.I mean, just an aside to the Muslim community, if you dont want to be portrayed in a negative light, maybe dont burn people alive and set off bombs and things like that.
Hesgeth added: Yeah, and point out the radicalism, and say thats not me.
The comments didnt sit well with many on Twitter:
