anyone who took the time to watch reverend jeremiah wright's speeches to the naacp or the national press club or both, could easily see that there was nothing racist or offensive about rev. wright's remarks.
today, cnn posted a video by jeanne moos "playful pastor" which can only be described as a hit piece on rev. wright. what cnn has done is taken selected clips from rev. wright's speech(s) and strung them together to once again make rev. wright look like a racist and a nutter.
barack obama, instead of condemning cnn et al, responds thusly:
Obama says he's outraged by former pastor's comments
By MIKE GLOVER
HICKORY, N.C. (AP) — Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday he was outraged by the latest assertion by his former pastor that criticism of his fiery sermons is an attack on the black church.
The presidential candidate is seeking to tamp down the growing fury over Rev. Jeremiah Wright and his incendiary remarks that threaten to envelope his campaign.
"I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw yesterday," Obama told reporters at a news conference.
After weeks of staying out of the public eye while critics lambasted his sermons, Wright made three public appearances in four days to defend himself. The former pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago has been combative, providing colorful commentary and feeding the story Obama had hoped was dying down.
"This is not an attack on Jeremiah Wright," Wright told the Washington media Monday. "It has nothing to do with Senator Obama. It is an attack on the black church launched by people who know nothing about the African-American religious tradition."
Obama told reporters Tuesday that Wright's comments do not accurately portray the perspective of the black church.
"The person I saw yesterday was not the person that I met 20 years ago," Obama said of the man who married him.
