    Gerald what is also interesting is the media's crgoeave of the Democratic debate sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus. As an American-black man I was appalled that the media reports did not focus on the topics that were discussed during the debate. Rather, they solely focused on the mud-slinging between Obama and Clinton. I watched the debate and there were some great forensic-style discussions on the issues that affect the American-black community. But if you watched most local evening news and some national (including 24-hour news networks), you would have thought there was no civil dialog among the two candidates and no dialog at all from Edwards. If the media top-brass were smart, they would fire all of their anchors and hire Jerry Springer. Might as well, they are headed in that direction anyway.
