Islam influence on todays media? Speech help.

So I have a speech due, but after considerable research, I'm still having trouble developing my points. My topic is about the Islamic influence on media today. I derived the topic from an article read about how Pakistan accidently shut off Youtube from the world for about 3 hours. So I have a couple instances of this for my speech but if anyone has exprience with this topic or could help me wth just a few points. This isn't a very long speech but I don't like my topic and I can't really change it now. Thanks for the help

Well I'd like to point out that Pakistan did not intentionally kill Youtube for the world. The world outage was a mere side effect of their own incompetence when trying to block Youtube just for Pakistan.


If you want to know about Islam's effect on the media, ask TwoKaySix.

that's random, kind of tangential but not on point.

Wikipedia has fewer errors per page than microsoft encarta. The main reason I was given for not citing wikipedia is because you shouldn't be citing any encyclopedia article after about the 6th grade anyways.

While I hate to pursure an off topic thread this early in a post, I have to disagree here.

The problem with Wikipedia has nothing to do with the quality of it's information but rather the percieved lack of qualifications of the contributers.

As far as Islam's influence on today's media, I'd say it's relatively limited as a first order of effect, at least in western media. There are secondary effects, seen in instances such as the Danish charicature of Mohammad, but even instances such as these are somewhat rare.

You should rent or watch the documentary called "Control Room". It's a behind the scenes look at the number one news outlet for all Muslims, run by Muslims, Al-Jazeera.

You should look in how the Saudi Royal family owns considerable shares in American media outlets.

The 3rd most listened to talk radio host in the country Michael Savage is being sued and trying to take him off the air for his views of Islamic extremists by CAIR ; Council on Islamic-American Relations

Research CAIR and you'll find abundance of corruption. The federal government, in fact, recently named CAIR, based in Washington, D.C., as an unindicted co-conspirator in an alleged scheme to funnel $12 million to the terrorist group Hamas.

A much better topic would be Protestantism's influence on today's media.

Hamas is listed as a terrorist organization by Canada,[7] Israel,[8] Japan,[9] and the United States,[10] and is banned in Jordan.[11] Australia[12] and the United Kingdom[13] list only the militant wing of Hamas, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, as a terrorist organization.

Stated pretty quickly in the first link I googled. I don't know and don't really care if they are, but apparently some people have decided they are.

"Various Hamas elements have used both political and violent means, including terrorism, to pursue the goal of establishing an Islamic Palestinian state in place of Israel. Hamas activists, especially those in the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, have conducted many attacks—including large-scale suicide bombings—against Israeli civilian and military targets. In the early 1990s, they also targeted suspected Palestinian collaborators and Fatah rivals. HAMAS increased its operational activity during 2002-2003 claiming numerous attacks against Israeli interests. The group has not targeted US interests—although some US citizens have been killed in HAMAS operations—and continues to confine its attacks to Israelis inside Israel and the territories."


Where have you been?
