Well, if you count the Huffington Post in the mainstream….
With reporting like this from outlets like HuffPo, it will become harder and harder for the media, especially Fox News, to continue to ignore the metastasizing Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the US government story.

Here is the Huffington Post yesterday spinning the story by using the word “plotting” in the title—as in Frank Gaffney is plotting not the Muslim Brotherhood plotting!
WASHINGTON — If Frank Gaffney gets his way, Grover Norquist won’t be at a high-profile conservative gathering known as the Conservative Political Action Conference in October. Not only that, but the anti-tax crusader and his allies will be totally discredited and branded as supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Gaffney is head of the Center for Security Policy and committed to raising the alarm about what he sees as the growing influence of Islam in American politics. Most recently, his work inspired Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and four other conservative lawmakers to write to federal agencies and ask them to investigate whether the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the U.S. government.
But long before he was going after top State Department official Huma Abedin, Gaffney was targeting two men connected with CPAC: Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform, and Suhail Khan, a former official in the administration of President George W. Bush. Both are board members of the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC.
“Grover Norquist is credentialing the perpetrators of this Muslim Brotherhood influence operation. … We are in a war, and he has been working with the enemy for over a decade,” said Gaffney in a January 2011 WorldNetDaily op-ed.
Read it all! It is very detailed reporting although you can tell the reporter and/or editor is very conflicted. You know the Left would like nothing more than to bring down Norquist and his Republican allies, but if Gaffney is correct (and I believe he is!) just the thought of our government, especially the State Department, the Justice Department and the Pentagon, having been compromised by enemies of our country is incredibly frightening to say the least. And, I think that is why everyone seems to be out to ‘get’ Gaffney. It is that old saw—fearful of the message? Kill the messenger (figuratively!).

*In interviews Norquist has cited an obscure book, ‘I led three lives,‘ by Herbert Philbrick as one of his favorite books—any significance? Just asking!
