ALEXANDRIA, VA - Democratic presidential
candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton has produced an ad in which the
skin of her opponent, African-American Senator Barack Obama, is
alleged to have been digitally darkened. Last night, none of the
broadcast or cable news networks found it newsworthy. None of them
investigated the charge or reported on the ad.
Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell:
"Where is the outrage from the establishment media? If John McCain had been accused of this, it would not only end his presidential campaign, it would end his career. If any Republican had been accused of this, it would be breaking news on television, and top of the fold, front-page news in papers throughout the country.
"The media's selective outrage on racial charges is astounding. Just ask Robert Byrd and Trent Lott."
