Quote of the day

"The media silence on this is absolutely staggering to me. While the cable news shows and blogs obsess over Rev. Wright, not a single major media outlet covers this story about an American president in a decades-long relationship with a man who has spoken openly of taking over the United States and establishing a one-world theocracy under his rule. Absolutely mind-boggling." - Ed Brayton

Have you seen the Bill Moyers piece on this topic. It is making the rounds in the blogosphere, though I first saw it replayed on Democracy Now, which I admit I hardly ever watch. Although I do enjoy Moyers' show.

In this piece he explicitly calls out the media hypocrisy and mentions Hagee, Robertson and Falwell. He ends with a quote from a historian: "Beware the Terrible Simplifieers"

I hadn't seen that. Thanks.

I don't watch Democracy Now, either.
