The soundbites in much of the news and opinion centers allow bashing of not just Muslims but Catholics.
At least the BBC usually has the Islamic version for you to judge (also on youtube), but the Brits (and by extention many US intellectuals) still spout only bad things about Catholic. This ignores a lot of subtle things (as an Asian, all the nonsense about the terrible Christian wars ignore that many of the worst Mass murderers were Asians like Mao, or those who are hailed as conquerers, like some of the Chinese emperors or Genghis Khan).
I ran across this on an education site, but it's also on youtube.
a lot of this is just pointing out facts found scattered in other history lectures, but not in the popular culture.
