More campaign shenanigans? Was Rev. Wright simply quoting Ambassador Edward Peck when he made those controversial remarks that ended with, “God damn America”? Over at the Daily Kos, naijaman seems to think so. He posted the following YouTube link showing approximately ten minutes of the sermon, rather than the short clip being run by the mainstream media. Judge for yourself:
Assuming this clip shows the way it really happened, why didn’t the Obama camp say so right away? Why didn’t they release this video? Wouldn’t it have taken some heat out of the controversy?
With the campaigns trying to cripple each other while putting the best possible face on everything, and the media loving controversy wherever they can find or manufacture it, it is becoming increasing difficult to know what the truth is.
One thing we do know, however, is to never fully trust either politicians or media.
