    This has to make it to the MSM so people see what Obama's spiritual guru is really like.
    Kiss all the reds and some of the blues good-bye with this gutter shit.

      This diarist undermines the purposes of this site by posting this shit to FOX, enabling the right-wing noise machine. I'm a lot more concerned about how this diarist is undermining the purposes of this site than I am about anything Rev. Wright said.

        it includes fox, and other networks/ right wing/ left wing publications. I have contacts at Fox now, through my schools journalism program, and one at CNN, whats the problem?

        •  It is a huge problem. (1+ / 0-)

          You undermine the purposes of this site by feeding information to FOX that they can use to smear Obama. But you already chose Clinton over this site anyway. So, maybe you should go back over to Hillaryis44 or start Daily Hillary and let those of us who are dedicated to electing Democrats have our own community.

          •  Hillary is a democrat, HELLO! (0+ / 0-)

            and last I checked we were still ina primary. The hypocrisy is too much. So its OKAY for this site that is supposed to elect democrats so nobly to smear Hillary right on the Front PAGE?! more than once, with Bullshit "darkened Ad" conspiracy theories.

            But it's not okay for me to demand balanced coverage on race issue from all media networks. Nice logic.

            •  I'm not talking about Hillary. (0+ / 0-)

              I'm talking about you and your undermining of the purposes of this site by enabling the FOX noise machine. I don't care about the e-mail list or even demanding what you call "balanced coverage," but you are doing more than that -- you have friends within FOX that you are feeding information that they can use for their own right-wing purposes.

              •  wow, you are wildly exxagerating (0+ / 0-)

                it. I'm seeing Fox as a news vehicle and thats it. The truth is they get the highest ratings and drive often what other media cover. They are 95% bad, but they do still cover regular stories, and I've interned at my local fox for school, to get credits and thus made some contacts. If I'd like a story covered, or have an idea for a story, id send it fox as well as CNN/MSNBC/TIME/USATODAY.... I don't see anything wrong with that, as again, they often drive media.  Why don't you go yell at Barack Obama or HRC for appearing on Fox, i'm sure their campaigns understand its a reality of news today, so do I

                  This diary reflects more on you than it does on Reverend Wright. This diary shows your basic ignorance of FOX, what kind of an organization they stand for, and what kind of crap they pull. Go buy Al Franken's book on FOX and see for yourself how FOX routinely distorts news for right-wing propaganda purposes. And while you're at it, go and read Media Matters and FAIR as well. When you've done that, then we can talk.

                  •  wow, too bad my diary doesnt (0+ / 0-)

                    mention Fox. too bad the same story, EXACT same story i pused to fox, I also pushed to CNN/MSNBC/Kansas City Start and over 100 media organizations, too bad huh? you have no point...

                    •  Again: (0+ / 0-)

                      I could care less if you had an email list of 100 news organizations that include FOX. The problem is that you are doing a lot more than that. You are milking your contacts within FOX, enabling them to spew out their hate speech every day.

                      •  I don't have power over Fox (0+ / 0-)

                        eternal, I tell them the same story I tell other media. your fantasy world where I can get fox to print whatever I'd like (would be nice) isn't real. I pitch them a story, like any P.R person does, the journalist either likes it or doesnt. If you have a contact it's easier, so I have contacts at Fox and CNN. If I have a story idea i think they should publish, i pass it on to them. its not hard to understand...

            It's you and people like you, who want to shut up anyone who disagrees with you.  How dare you call yourself "Eternal Hope"!  You are not the solution; you are the problem.  If a Democrat is not elected in November, you will be to blame, for trying to shut up anyone who really wanted to take an honest look at the candidates.  Now that you have a fatally flawed candidate who cannot win, trying to silence everyone who tells the truth about him won't help you one bit.

      •  Yeah, and that's what's wrong with you (0+ / 0-)

        You are more worried about your flawed candidate winning than about stopping hate, more worried about covering up the truth than seeing the truth.

        What a phony you are.

        •  This is a Democratic blog. (0+ / 0-)

          The purpose of this site is to get Democrats elected, and this diarist is undermining the purposes of this site by supplying crap to FOX News. There is nothing hateful about what Reverend Wright is saying. There is plenty of hate on FOX, and rigso is enabling that hate machine.

          •  enabling? haha, give me a break. you are obsessed (1+ / 0-)

            with the fact that my media list of over 2000 emails includes Fox on it, and I know a couple of people at Fox and push the same stories to them that i push to all other networks when i think the story deserves coverage, its a P.R trade, not a blog trade. Get over it, go back to writinga bout Hillary and how her campaign is commiting credit card fraud.

            YOU are the hate machine.  YOU are the problem for the Democratic party.  Don't lecture me on getting Democrats elected.  I've been a Democrat for 40 years and if a Democrat does not get elected in 2008 it will be your fault, not mine.

            Well Fuck Obama's Anti American Chucrh of Hate
            Congrats He just lost the election!!

            •  Well, good for him. (0+ / 0-)

              I'm sick and tired of all the racist crap that is going on in this country like disproportionate numbers of Blacks going to jail, Blacks being disenfranchised at the polls, people being arrested for driving while Black, people like Bill Clinton stabbing his base in the back to get his wife elected. Where the hell is your outrage at that?

                Seriously, are you nuts?  Bill Clinton's presidency left ordinary Americans a whole lot better off when it ended than when it started.  I can't say it was perfect.  After all, in politics there have to be compromises.  Now, I know you folks here at DKOS don't realize that, but it's true.

                And what's the obsession about blacks?  They were indeed disenfranchised in large numbers, but so were Hispanics, the elderly, and lots of other Americans.  Is it only bad when it happens to blacks?

                You have some growing up to do, if you can hear someone say he's glad about 9/11 and then praise him.  That is, unless you're nuts.

                •  I agree that Clinton did some good things. (0+ / 0-)

                  I realize that we were a lot better off than when Clinton first took power; I will support Hillary if she were to win the nomination. But maybe you should go through and read what I write before you go making accusations, because I have consistently called out anti-immigration creeps. Racism and discrimination are wrong no matter who it happens to.
