News and Society Bloggers are buzzing a┬ávideo from 2009, produced by an ABC News hidden camera team, called “How Muslims Are Treated in America.” The segment shows video shot by hidden camera, the video clip is the reactions of bystanders as two actors stage a racially charged scene, with one actor portraying a deli owner who refuses service to a hijab-wearing Muslim woman, also played by an actor. The video is making the rounds as a means of shedding light on the ongoing and increasingly ugly battle over the Cordoba center, called the “Ground Zero Mosque” by critics, which has┬ásince spread to a handful of nationwide protests against Muslim-American centers. Setting aside concerns about the morality of such hidden camera journalism, which some critics say tricks and emotionally manipulates innocent people, it provides a brief window into American attitudes towards Islam.
