Americans and Muslims

CBS thinks it would be alright to do a show on how ordinary Americans are "nervous" around Muslims.  I wonder what they're getting at here.  Is there some reason to paint Americans as racists to prove that the current war effort is projecting badly on the American people?
The thing that strikes me about this whole thing is that they are advertising on CraigsList instead of just walking around on the street and asking people what they think.  It implies that there aren't that many people who are unnerved by Muslims in their community that they would have to PAY people to be on the show.  How many deadbeats do you think would accept money from CBS just for saying that they feel a bit "queer" around middle eastern folk?
