On April 15, 2004 PR Newswire reported, " A prominent national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today announced a new campaign designed to counter anti-Muslim hate on radio talk shows. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said the campaign, called 'Hate Hurts America,' is based on the premise that the increasing attacks on Islam by conservative talk show hosts nationwide is not only offensive to Muslims and other people of conscience, but also harms the United States by creating a downward spiral of interfaith mistrust and hostility.,, As part of the "Hate Hurts America" effort, Muslims will be given step-by- step instructions on how to monitor local and syndicated radio programs, report anti-Muslim hate, file FCC complaints, and contact advertisers to register their concerns."
