Theresa Corbin, CNN, and the Myth of the Muslim Feminist
Whenever there’s a series of particularly violent jihadist attacks, CNN rushes to defend Islam, typically by telling us over and over again what a wonderful religion it is. I suppose the administrators at CNN mean well. They’re probably thinking to themselves, “We need to protect peaceful Muslims from being associated with these violent extremists, and the best way to do that is to tell our readers and viewers that Islam is a religion of peace, tolerance, human rights, freedom, and democracy.”

What CNN ends up doing in their rush to defend Islam, however, amounts to proselytizing for Islam. Some of the articles sound as if they’re actually trying to convert people. Moreover, since CNN obviously doesn’t bother to check the facts in the articles they post (doing so might be thought “racist” or “Islamophobic”), the network is being used to spread outright deception.

CNN’s latest attempt to convince us that Islam is the ideal choice for Western readers is Theresa Corbin’s “I’m a Feminist, and I Converted to Islam.”

In this video, I examine Corbin’s claims.
