Update: Michael Graham suspended over Islam remarks

Washington, D.C., talk show host Michael Graham has been suspended without pay from radio station WMAL in the wake of a campaign by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who protested Graham's description of Islam as a terrorist organization.

The Washington Post's version, and Michael Graham's perspective. Oh, and CAIR's press release.

(For the record, I think Michael went too far in calling Islam a terrorist organization, though neither is it a "religion of peace". But I remain an avid Michael Graham listener, and hope the Post is right that "Graham is unlikely to be fired and will be back on the air after the current controversy cools down.")
