<p>On Monday, the <em>CBS Evening News </em>ran a full story about fears of continued Islamophobia in America following the terror attack in San Bernardino and turned to none other than the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) for help, but neglected to mention CAIR&rsquo;s extremist tendencies and how an official recently blamed the United States and the West for the spread of terrorism.</p>

<p>After the lead story was dedicated to Donald Trump&rsquo;s call to ban all Muslims from entering the United States, anchor Scott Pelley used that as a jumping off point to assume that Americans have turned away from Muslims: <strong>&ldquo;Well, Muslim-Americans are already feeling the divide in their communities here at home.&rdquo;</strong></p>
