The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor, was impressive in a thoughtful hour-long interview on PBS Friday. He explained how the snippets of video excerpted from a couple his old sermons and played over and over on cable TV shows were taken out of context to portray him – and by extension, Obama – as unpatriotic and fanatical. Unfortunately, most Americans probably didn’t watch that interview. Instead, they will hear more sound bites from his weekend NAACP speech or his speech today to the National Press Club – such as his refusal to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
