    Will Mormoism get the Rev. Wright treatment in the media? Probably not.
    The far right are the ones who try to drag religion into equation and this time they have a vested interest in shutting up about it.
    The left has a tradition of "let's keep religion out of this" so I don't see them trying to exploit this potentially fertile avenue.

    Yeah, gosh, I've never heard any lefty say anything negative about Romney's religion.

    And I typed it with a straight face too.

    Yeah I doubt the main stream media will ignore Romney's mormonism like they did with Obama and Rev Wrights connection.

    Sure if you listen to Right Wing Talk Radio or Fox news you heard about it, but if you listen to the Main Stream Media like most normal americans (you know the nbc network, abc, new york times, boston globe) you would have had a hard time hearing about it.

    If you had a more balanced diet of information, you would realize that EVERY news outlet covered Rev. Wright extensively. Venture out from your Fox cocoon every now and then and you will learn a lot.

    LOL they barely touched on it and you know that. I watch, listen to, and read multiple news outlets and can tell from your comment that I just quoted that you do not.

    No they did not "barely touch on it" They ran hour long specials delving into it. And if you got out of that Fox shell you would know that.

    so where are the hour-long specials on Mormonism.

    Where was the Fox coverage on Cindy Mccain getting fired for stealing drugs from her employers. I actually know folks who only watch Fox that NEVER knew that happened. Think Fox would have mentioned it if it had been Michelle Obama?????
