<p>Time magazine managing editor Richard Stengel appeared on the
September 27 Morning Joe to give viewers a preview of the latest issue
of the magazine, the cover story of which is devoted to Mitt Romney's
Mormon faith. At the tail end of the segment, teasing other articles in
the issue, Stengel plugged Bobby Ghosh's interview with Mohammed Abdel
Rahman, the son of Omar Abdel Rahman, the "blind sheikh" serving time in
a federal prison for his role in aborted 1993 bombing plot targeting
the World Trade Center.

"We have a great piece by Bobby Ghosh, who's been on here before about
the rise of the Salafis, in the Middle East, they're the Tea Party of
Muslim democracy, and that's a fantastic, insightful story as well,"
Stengel noted. Neither Joe Scarborough not co-host Willie Geist threw a
penalty flag at Stengel's unnecessary roughness, comparing the Tea Party
to radical advocates of stringent Sharia law.</p><div style="overflow: hidden; color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; border: medium none;">Read more at <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/ken-shepherd/2012/09/27/morning-joe-times-…; target="_blank">NewsBusters.org</a>.</div>
