So this is the payoff? Yesterday at least 20-25 people commenting on part one of this non-story (likely people who otherwise despise and distrust the 'mainstream media') took it as fact that there WAS a Muslim terrorist training camp in TN based on this Nick Beres piece. So this fails as journalism in every way. Local TV news is usually pretty bad, but during sweeps month this is the kind of innuendo-driven malpractice we get. Final thought: why not investigate the producers of the dang video, which is spreading a lie about the people of Dover, TN???

What was all the "hype" on the television for? To get residents stirred up? It sure looked like there was a crumpled flag, grenades going off, and combat training in the commercials for this "investigative piece". Come on Channel 5, you sure gave the wrong impression to us viewers all weekend long. Thumbs down on the way the commercials portrayed your story.

Coverage for this, coverage for Palin, coverage for criminals being tried, but Benny Hinn was in town Thursday, Friday, and Saturday but got no coverage whatsoever. I attended it Saturday and it was very uplifting and spiritual filled. Thank God we are still able to have these things in America, but let it be a politician, movie or country star and the whole city goes ape over it. Idols!

Sweeps month folks. It's all about the ratings, so they come up with fake stories like this to get all the mouth-breathers worked up (and watch their station). WTVF is a joke.

This is disturbing and disgusting. As a journalism student, I've been taught to write and report the truth. Well, you at least did that, but the way you did it?

Come on... just because this place has the name "Islamville", people assume the worst: "Oh no! They're building bombs and they're going to corrupt our children!"

News flash: not all people of the Islamic faith are terrorists. Yes, there are extremists groups, but the majority of them are just regular people trying to live their lives - just like the rest of us.

News reports like this only further enhance the stigma attached to being a Muslim - that they're all bad and going to bomb us. Because of you, stereotypes are further entrenched and more and more people are being backed up in their ways of hate and bigotry.

So good job, Channel 5, you've just jumped on the bandwagon to revive McCarthyism.

Talk about fear mongering at its worst. What was the point of this story other than to get people riled up?

You know this story just made people that are angry already, more angry. It made people who are suspicious, more suspicious. It made people who are afraid, more afraid. So what was the point? That there are NO training camps in rural America? That we are putting these "maybe" jihadists on notice? That there are all kinds of religious zealots out there that hate us? Don't we already know this? Give me a break here!

Wow. Amateur journalism at it's finest. Not only was this piece of garbage a hype induced non-story, it also shows a fundamental misunderstanding of terrorist networks and training camps. Local news strikes again....

It all starts with the title of the story, "NewsChannel 5 Crew Visits Islamville Compound." The use of the word "compound" is manipulative and sounds like a para-military facility. The reaction would be quite different if it read "Islamville Trailer Park," but then where is the news in a trailer park. This story is pure manipulation.

Though you guys attempted to put a happy face on this
and swing it in an open minded direction,the fact that you chose to make a story out of this in the first place shows that you guys re spineless with your ratings, you know what kind of ignorant intolerant prejudiced groups and peoples inhabit
your viewing area? do you know what they are going to do to these people now that you have "exposed" their HARMLESS existence? They will be lucky not to have to pick up and move to another state! The vandalism, hate mail, and threats these people
receive in the months following this report fall on your heads, News5. You chose to report on some
bootleg nazi hate fundamentalist christian propaganda video? what credit does that even have? who cares if one as*hole preached in dirt madison Tennessee saw the video and was concerned? does he even have a high school diploma? do you know? what
importance does his opinion have here? And now you all know he is affiliated with this christian nazi
hate propaganda and probably a member of the organization that made the video,how else would he have gotten a hold of this, i suggest you investigate him and the video because it is obviously a hateful lie,if you leave it up to these people or give them the time of day they will have every Islamic person thrown into a camps and we'll have a huge mess on our hands. SHAME ON YOU CHANNEL 5, YOU DONE STUCK YOUR FINGER IN THE PIE AND STIRRED IT UP!!

as with any commune of people whom
choose to live a secluded life, and
especially those which revolve around
religions or belief systems that allow
polygamy, be it a hippie commune or a
Mormon sect, an Islam village or even
the Amish or Mennonites, The real investigation needs to be about ensuring
the children have the same opportunities
as everyone else,are treated well, and aren't being married to men 2 to 3 times their age and denied education,or molested,and that investigation isn't for you channel 5 child protective services no doubt knows islamville and hasn't found a problem there,or you'd have heard about it.

Coming up next week on Channel Five: Northern Ireland has long been a hotbed of Catholic terrorism – have they imported their violence to Middle Tennessee? We investigate a group of women with suspicious activities. They dress in uniforms – Paramilitary? Their leader calls herself “Superior”– to God-fearing Protestants, no doubt! They’ve become so willing to die for their beliefs that they don’t consider themselves human any more – they call each other “none”! Dressed all in black, are these women secret Catholic Ninjas? And who is their target?? Tune in next week (between 6:00 and 6:30) as Nick Beres goes undercover to discover the secret of SISTERS OF (NO)MERCY!!!!!!

I hope channel 5 and TN is happy to find out that there is no Holy Jihad terrorist group training in Dover TN. I didn't think so and many other groups live out in the country to get away from prejudice people that live in TN.
I guess next is Short Mountain where the radical fairies a group of gay people that live off the land will be picked on next. Welcome to Prejudice America full of hypocrites.

It's ashame in this country, our country, that we have to bend to need of every outsider that decides to live in our country. Even though the cameras didn'd see anything going on in the compound, you can rest assured that something is going on under our own noses. I say we should send every non American back to their own country. It seems that everyone has a say in America but the Americans. Our right to Freedom has been taken away, so I say we take it back.

SO, YOU DID NOT SEE MUSLIM'S IN THIS COMPOUND BLOWING UP PEOPLE - DO YOU REALLY THINK THEY WOULD DO THIS OUT IN THE OPEN. THE US AND TENNESSEE NEED TO WAKE UP TO THE FACT THIS IS A FAST GROWING RELIGION AND THEY WANT YOUR IDEA OF THEM TO BE PEACE AND LOVING - THAT IS COMPLETELY NOT TRUE - IF YOU ARE A JEW YOU ARE A SATURDAY PERSON IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN YOU ARE A SUNDAY PERSON - GUESS WHAT THEY WANT BOTH DEAD - PASTOR DAVIS THANK YOU FOR BEING ONE OF THE FEW THAT IS WILLING TO TELL THE TRUTH. ASK A MUSLIM IF HE BELIEVES IN JESUS CHRIST - THEY ONLY BELIEVE HE WAS A PROPHET AND NOT THE SON OF GOD - THEY PUT THEIR KIDS IN FRONT OF THEM TO DIE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THAT DYING A MATAR FOR ISLAM SENDS THEM TO PARADISE AND THAT IS THE ONLY WAY THEY GET THERE - I LOVE THE MUSLIM PEOPLE AND WANT THEM TO BE SET FREE BUT I DON'T WANT THEM TAKING OVER THIS COUINTRY - GOD HELP AMERICA. THANK YOU CHANNEL FIVE FOR GIVING INFORMATION THAT COULD BE VALUABLE TO TENNESSEE

If the "community" Islamville were occupied by White Seperatist, like at Ruby Ridge, I would bet those of you that lean hard left would be all for Janet Reno going in head strong to stop those crazies. Look at recent history. This should be looked at seriously and those people there should understand by living the way they have chosen, in these times, will produce this type of concern.

It's all about stereotypes and prejudices: all Muslims are terrorist as same as all Hispanics are illegals... Pure ignorance... Oh! BTW is it true that the only thing Americans eat is burgers and all Southerns are Red Necks?? It's what I've heard worldwide... lol
