Where's Ben Hecht--Or Even Lou Grant--When You Need Him?

Tim Graham writes, “the folks at Barack Obama’s church are telling the supposedly anti-Obama, anti-Jeremiah Wright news media to back off“, attempting to connect Wright with Martin Luther King:

AP reporter Christopher Wills added that Otis Moss, Wright’s replacement at Trinity, is still treating Wright as a prophet straight out of the Old Testament, even if the words he used sounded more like annoying 20th century socialist boilerplate:

The Rev. Otis Moss III, who is replacing Wright when he retires June 1, defended Wright’s comments.

“One of the roles of the prophets: Sometimes you offend. You afflict the comfortable but comfort the afflicted,” Moss said.

Is Wright a fiery, Marxist, racist preacher, or merely a fiery, Marxist, racist journalist?

And as far as attempting to tie Wright to MLK, Juan Williams is having none of it: “What would Jesus do? There is no question he would have left that church.”
