Alan Colmes ran to the defense of the Obama administration on the 29 January 2015 edition of Fox Business Network's Imus in the Morning over their deliberate avoidance of using the term "radical Islam." Producer Bernard McGuirk took a shot at the White House, asserting that "we should say 'Islamic extremism,' because by not saying it is not going to appease anybody." Colmes repeatedly underlined, "It's not Islam," and claimed that the administration's strategy "makes it less dangerous, because you're not going after an entire religion."
