haters on fox news all the time. because that sells to their audience. there was a study two years ago which showed of all of the networks, fox news has the most negative view of islam. that's what they give them. they give them all the time. even fox news red eye, they had on, attacking huma for being a muslim brotherhood. no one challenges. on the panel. people do not challenge. they hate being spewed on fox news. that feeds the beast. that's what their people want. >> stephanie: by the way that, whole reattack on huma. how much trickier can you be than to marry a jewish pervert if you're trying to go deep undercover in the muslim brotherhood. >> it is genius. this is homeland stuff.

after the boston bombing. like a month ago, they had something on nigeria on fox news and the liberal guy, the guy who is the alleged liberal on fox was like we should not let more muslims in this country. he gets a high-five from other people on the panel. i'm not kidding. this is how ridiculous it's gotten. if fox news was around years ago when anti-semitism was part of mainstream, i have no doubt they would be anti-semitic and pro segregation. they just feed to the worst element of our society and thankfully, their viewers are dying off. >> stephanie: they would probably still be in black and white if they could. wouldn't even be in color just to prove a point. >> just white. >> stephanie: you know, what's interesting though, clearly, she just read the title because the title is zealot, the life and times of jesus in nazareth. as i explained about what the book is about, he doesn't mean that in a bad way.
7:14 am
he means people called him a zealot. >> he's a political figure. but here's the other thing i think a lot of people don't know. in islam, jesus is an important, important prophet to us. he is as important as mohammed and abraham and moses. these are all of the major prophets of islam. mohammed -- if you're muslim, you know, mow hamed was the last prophet who gave the last word of god. but jesus is just as important. and i have friends who have come to shows where comics talk about moses in a negative way like smoking pot or something like that. muslims angered by that going how dare you make fun of moses. people don't realize the real practicing muslims, jesus, mohammed, moses are all on the same level. we don't worship mohammed in any way whatsoever. it is about god. the reason people get upset is they don't want you to worship mohammed. it is not that mohammed is sacrosanct. don't make him like jesus.
7:15 am
just pray to god. >> stephanie: right. dean, i don't know if you saw the other -- really bad analogies edition that green quoted a critic, a muslim writing a book about jesus would be be like a democrat writing a book about why ronald reagan wasn't a good republican. he had a great response. he said it would be like a democrat with a ph.d. in reagan who had been studying history for two decades writing about reagan. he said i think the fundamental problem here is you're assuming i have some sort of faith-based bias. i right about hinduism and christianity and islam. my job is a scholar with a ph.d. is to write about religion. >> one of the preeminent muslim scholars who is catholic at georgetown university. everyone loves him. you're catholic. how can you talk about islam? i was at a function where he spoke. he's great. he's more knowledgeable about muslim than i am and i'm muslim.
7:16 am
he's critical of terrorism. he knows the faith. no one says you can't speak on islam. if you're an educated person, you can. and there's flaws in your theories or views, you'll be held to task for it. he's like i encourage people to have an academic discussion on the issues i raised. >> stephanie: dean, i love the final little bit of dollop of journalism that lauren greene did on fox. she accused him of hiding his faith. even on several programs and never disclose that you're a muslim to which he responded his biography is on the second page of his book. >> his name is riza aslan. he was born in iran. is he hiding his faith? at one point, he became a christian. he was an evangelical christian in his teens. he found jesus then returned to islam, i don't know why. he made a choice to do that. he has a great respect for jesus. which is -- you know, this guy
7:17 am
seems -- he's well-educated, well-spoken, wrote a great book. i'm glad it is becoming a big hit. weird to see this politicized. i don't see any other religion like this where there's pro and con on a political spectrum where conservatives are anti-muslim. go on twitter, there are people who say anti-muslim and islam. and tcot hashtag and conservative and tea party. so there are actually people -- imagine if you put i hate jews on your profile, i hate black people. you would never do that because in society it is not accepted. still on the right it is accepted to demonize muslims so fox news people defended this interview. people with a brain don't. i think the amoeba brain-eating creature they talked about on cnn last night, which i think ted cruz has -- >> stephanie: ted "an amoebaate my brain" cruz. >> i'm glad people are standing up saying this is ludicrous.

immediately in the 24/7 cycle of most made up news stories not to mention the source was a zimmerman friend on the same sanford police department that tried to get him away without being arrested or tried for pursuing and murdering a child. initial report was that zimmerman was coincidentally driving by. right near where he shot trayvon martin. just weirdly for a p.r. angle. he leaped out of his vehicle, fire extinguisher in hand to rescue the family of four. pulling them to safety. that was followed by the claim that the family rescued him planned to thank george zimmerman in a press event but they canceled due to threats from trayvon martin supporters. it appears they may have canceled it because they did not want to be part of a fraud when the story was not precisely true. what i'm reading in this piece is what did occur, an accident occurred when a car slid to the median. people called 911 which went to the seminole county sheriff's

>> 100. >> stephanie: okay. by the way, my good friend, michael tomasky of the "daily beast" wrote a piece called it's your moment, obama, don't blow it. the president is at last sounding aggressive about progressive policies namely enough to save the country and the middle class. it is not rocket science writes tomasky. my favorite presidential sentence in quite some time, uttered by barack obama, "the new york times" interview that we talked about. he said i want to make sure all of us in washington are investing as much time and as much energy and as much debate on how we grow the economy and the middle class after we spent over the last three years over how we reduce the deficit. of course, that's not going to happen not with this congress but if obama keeps up with the aggressive progressive posture, he could refrain about austerity and inequality for the past 30 years. that's right. it is because republicans never shut up about -- they think -- these policies do not work. the austerity policies. they just keep saying it and
7:43 am
think it will -- anyway. tomasky -- because we're now in the age of sequestration and severe cuts, there is no broad recognition -- there is broad recognition that austerity has hurt the economy. take it from ben bernanke who keeps begging congress to do something to help the economy. fiscal is restraining growth. grand bargain talk is dead. he's pushing not only an agenda but an alternative theory of economic growth. obama may not get any bills passed but he can spend the next three years hammering home key points that will help shift the debate in ways that will be beneficial to president hillary clinton should that come to pass and who knows, maybe win one or two of the upcoming fights with house republicans. he says the first point, you grow an economy not by investing in the top 1% but by creating as large a goods consuming middle class as you can possibly build. he was saying democrats should talk about this. talk about how inequality is bad for the economy, growth and capitalism. >> and getting rid of the post office is a hugely awful idea.
