You don’t have to like Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, her politics or her husband to agree she’s a smart woman. She’s especially smart when I hear her say something on the evening news that I myself thought earlier in the day. For the second time in about 18 hours, FOF Hillary has condemned a Florida pastor’s plan to burn copies of the Quran on the anniversary of 9/11.
She hoped that the media would not cover the event on Saturday “as an act of patriotism.”
Sanctimonious TV commentators, newspaper editors and radio hosts are weighing in 24/7 on the clown pastor’s horrendous plan. But they’ll be sure to send cameras and microphones up the wazoo to record every moment. After all, the clown’s act will get viewers.
If I were a media honcho, I would try to corral my colleagues across the industry not to cover the event.
