#4 Fox covers the story too.

From their story:
Muzzammil Hassan, who founded Bridges TV in November 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes, surrendered to police Thursday. Hassan touted the network as the "first-ever full-time home for American Muslims," according to a press release.

"Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a 'Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'" Hassan said in the 2004 release. "But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell."

"As you can see, my story is the former. The latter are mostly fiction."

#7 The local Buffalo news reported that that Mr. Hassan lived in Orchard Park, which is an upscale suburb in the southwest side of the city. What they didn't report because everybody their knows it, is that it is not far from Lackawanna, home of the famous Lackawanna Six terrorists. Of course, he and his wife hail from Pakistan, whereas I believe the Muslims in Lackawanna are almost exclusively Yemenis... many of whom conform to a great many of the negative stereotypes Mr. Hassan hoped to disprove.

Separately, it seems the Buffalo authorities were trying to contact the Hassan family in Pakistan, presumably to take responsibility for the four children, who I'm sure will not at all appreciate being returned to the ancestral home.
