ABC Affiliate Gives Airtime to Rep of Group Promoting David Duke and Hamas
Wilfredo Amr Ruiz is a lawyer for two prominent US-based radical Muslim organizations. One, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has numerous terrorist ties, including ties to Hamas leadership. The other, the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA), promotes white supremacist David Duke on social media and conducts rallies for Hamas. Given this, why would WPLG Local 10, an affiliate of ABC News, give Ruiz airtime to spout his views? But that is exactly what happened, earlier this month.
On March 13th, WPLG Local 10 news aired a segment criticizing Florida Governor Rick Scott for going on a TV talk show and refusing to answer a question regarding a statement Presidential candidate Donald Trump made about Islam. The piece featured South Florida attorney Wilfredo Amr Ruiz being interviewed by WPLG reporter Bob Norman. On it, Ruiz said that he and others "felt betrayed" by Governor Scott for not speaking out against Trump.
