Major Media Nearly Silent on Obama's Controversial Supporters

Sen. Barack Obama's new Web site geared to his presidential bid,, includes official endorsements from notorious clergymen known for making fantastic, racially inflammatory claims---yet the liberal media aren't saying much about these endorsements or the controversial clergymen who Sen. Obama has officially embraced. It is doubtful the liberal media would be as silent if such people were publicly endorsing a Republican or conservative political candidate.

Rev. Jeremiah A Wright Jr. is Sen. Obama's pastor. Concerning 9/11, Rev. Wright, says, "White America got their wake-up call after 9-11. White America and the Western world came to realize people of color had not gone away, faded in the woodwork, or just disappeared as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.” Wright also calls America "this racist United States of America." Another Obama-endorser is Rev. J. Alfred Smith Sr., who was honored by the violent Black Panther Party and given a community award by the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam (hat-tip to Catholic League). The liberal media's near-silence about all this actually says a lot about their political agenda.
