Video: Tucker Carlson presses his case on 2007 Obama speech « Hot Air: "The larger point here is that the media has a double standard on race, and a double standard for Republicans. They like to talk about “dog whistles” among conservatives that — last time I checked — includes the words “Chicago” and “basketball.” When a Democrat of any background gets up and flat-out tells a predominantly black audience that the federal government likes the “suburbs” better than “our neighborhoods,” it doesn’t even get so much as a dog-biscuit mention by the media. When Tucker calls the original coverage “a subversion of what journalism’s supposed to be,” he’s absolutely right.
Will this video change minds about this election? I doubt it. Partisans have already chosen sides, and the undecideds and low-information voters will care more about the economy and perhaps the cover-up in Libya. This, however, serves as a good data point about media biases and double standards."
