NBC Plants Muslims at NASCAR
April 06, 2006 09:31 AM EST

By Sher Zieve – NBC’s Dateline is reported to have planted Muslims at a NASCAR event, in order to uncover anti-Muslim sentiment. The NBC action is said to have been a “sting operation”.
NASCAR, who confirmed with NBC that it had purposefully sent “Muslim-looking men” and a camera crew to the race in an attempt to see if there would be ‘racist’ activities, said it is “outraged” at this attempt by NBC to create the news. NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said Wednesday: "It is outrageous that a news organization of NBC's stature would stoop to the level of going out to create news instead of reporting news." There are no reports that anyone bothered the Muslim-looking men.
