Here’s the great thing about the Internet especially with blogs; they create buzz. Then the Mainstream Media (MSM) picks up the buzz worthy subject and makes it “breaking news.” So I wasn’t surprised when I saw the “latest news” about Sen. John McCain with endorsers John Hagee and Rod Parsley. For the past month, many Net-watchers have been discussing why there is a double standard as it related to Sen. Barack Obama with his former pastor Rev. Wright while Sen. McCain sought the endorsement of a lightening rod Preacher in John Hagee. Even a month ago on This Week with George Stephanopoulis, McCain still failed to denounce Hagee’s endorsement.
What happened between last month and a few days ago when the “breaking news” went all over the cable TV shows, videos surfaced of both John Hagee and Rod Parsley saying damning stuff against Catholics and Muslims respectively. Here’s what I don’t get with the MSM, why aren’t these videos of both Hagee and Parsley running on my TV screens like the Rev. Wright fiasco every couple of hours of every day? Can you say double standard . . .
