Fox Business Chyron: “Close All U.S. Mosques?”
Fox Business' Charles Payne Gives “Unscientific Poll” To Viewers On Whether U.S. Should Close Mosques
During a segment on Fox Business' Making Money with Charles Payne, a chyron (or on-air graphic) was displayed asking whether the U.S. should close all mosques.
In the wake of the November 13 Paris attacks, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he would “strongly consider” closing U.S. mosques as a response to the attacks.
Discussing Trump's statement on the November 17 edition of Fox Business' Making Money, host Charles Payne introduced a segment with a chyron questioning whether to “Close All U.S. Mosques?”
Payne polled viewers on whether they agreed or disagreed that “closing all mosques would 'gut our core values.'” Payne claimed that a majority of his viewers believed that closing mosques would not “gut our core values” and argued that the American people “just do not see a compatibility between the Islam that they know and America based on Christian-Judeo values.”
CHARLES PAYNE (HOST): Visceral or not, it has touched something, and like I said I was shocked at the -- this is obviously an unscientific, informal poll, but it was consistent throughout the day. And people not only voted, but they gave me their reasons why. And they just do not see a compatibility between the Islam that they know and America based on Christian-Judeo values.
