The choice of Joe Scarborough by MSNBC to host a morning show is an example of political cowardice by Dan Abrams its program director. Other than Keith Olbermann, MSNBCs lineup is decidedly right of center. Scarborough along with lapdogs Willie Geist, and Mika Brzezinski are over the top on the patriotism thing. Rev. Wright's sermons should not be a basis for condemning Obama. Rev. Wright's 1st amendment rights should clearly be protected especially in the context of a sermon. Furthermore, Scarborough has drunk the Republican Kool-aid for so long that his comments are skewed and lack objectivity. Like many other Republican leaders, their comments are based upon hunches and not facts
On the other hand, CNN's Situation Room commentator Jack Cafferty stated yesterday that he had experienced fiery sermons by clergy that he did not agree with that in no way would cause him to leave his church. The idea that a black man going to a black church should be responsible for some of his pastor's sermons provides a double standard to an African American candidate. It is a sorry comment on the white dominated media. Because of Keith Olbermann I have made MSNBC my cable news channel of choice If things do not change, I am going to move elsewhere.
