She first made waves after asserting the United States needed a “Muslim version of ‘The Cosby Show’” to help fight off Islamophobia. The Blaze then joked that Couric’s dream show was actually airing in Canada, a show called “Little Mosque on the Prairie.”
On Wednesday, Couric doubled down on her assertion, however, inviting a cast member of Canada’s “Little Mosque” to join her for a web episode of her “@KatieCouric” webcast focusing on Islam in America.
“I’m assuming [the show is] educating people or at least normalizing Islam to a lot of people who are unfamiliar with it,” Couric said. “That was sort of the point of my suggestion, that popular culture can be incredibly influential in just making things less a novelty, and less something to be feared or less of the unknown.”
