In the summer of 2007, his campaign for the White House well under way, Senator Barack Obama waded into the minefield of racial politics and accused President George W. Bush of sitting idly by as a “quiet riot” simmered in black communities.
The news created a stir. NBC News featured it on its “Nightly News” broadcast. The Washington Post and The Chicago Tribune wrote about it, and it was mentioned in a New York Times Op-Ed column. The conservative writer and pundit Tucker Carlson devoted an entire segment to it on his MSNBC program.
WOW ….A WHOLE 7 MINUTE SEGMENT ON A STATION NO ONE WATCHES!
