In an episode of the Fox TV series 24, Islamic terrorists attack a nuclear power plant in the United States. Along with the episode, Fox produced an on-air disclaimer, reminding viewers that the Muslim-Americans community renounces terrorism. That disclaimer came about after the TV series caught the attention of Muslim rights groups.
