Accuracy in Media

Oh, the poster child for the Islamophobic “no-fly” list policy is now arrested by Turkish authorities for being a part of a terrorist cell:

A man who in 2013 became the face of a movement to portray the U.S. government’s no-fly list as discriminatory against Muslims was arrested earlier this month along with members of his family in Turkey for being part of an Islamic State cell, according to an article from PJ Media.

Saadiq Long’s view of the governmental policy was widely promoted by certain elements of the media, including Chris Hayes of MSNBC and Mother Jones, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations legally represented him while helping to spread his message.
