Katie Couric made waves with her statement that the U.S. needed a Muslim version of “The Cosby Show” to familiarize people with Islam and counteract anti-Muslim bigotry. On Wednesday, Couric hosted an hour-long webcast about Islam in America and raised the subject again.
One of Couric’s guests was Zaib Shaikh, a Candian actor who stars in a television show called “Little Mosque On The Prairie.” As she introduced him, Couric noted that the show “is sort of like a Muslim ‘Cosby Show.’ Who knew?”
Later, she asked Shaikh to talk about the show. In doing so, she brought up her opinion that culture can change peoples’ attitudes.
