Newspapers Deliver Millions of 'Terror' DVDs to Subscribers -- In 'Swing States':

"NEW YORK The arrival of tens of millions of DVDs of a controversial DVD on doorsteps around the nation -- but almost exclusively in election 'swing states' -- via newspaper home delivery continues this weekend, with explanatory articles and subscriber feedback appearing on some of the papers' Web sites. "

"The DVDs of the 60-minute film, made in 2005, and titled 'Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West,' arrived today with, among other papers, the Charlotte Observer and the News & Observer in Raleigh, with delivery with the Miami Herald and other papers set for Sunday." (To watch a clip see link below.)

"It was shown on Fox News just before the 2006 mid-term elections, and conservative activist David Horowitz screened the film on college campuses during 2007. An article at the group's site,, all but endorsed John McCain this past week, then was pulled down."

You can address your comments to the group paying for the 'Campaign of Terror in America' here: The Clarion Fund, 255 West 36th Street Suite 800 New York, NY 10018

And please, feel free to contact the papers distributing the DVD. In the article, they proclaim they must not be biased. But exactly how biased is the 'advertising' they are carrying? It doesn't take a rocket scientists to see the content, the placement and the timing are ALL geared toward creating and developing bias. The only reasonable thing a paper could do in this case is require equalizing counter advertising or refuse the account altogether.
