Jerry Fuhrman over at "From On High" has an excellent post titled "A Macaca Postmortem" which backs up allegations that the mainstream media had a huge hand in the defeat of Senator George Allen, something I wrote about several days ago on SWAC Girl. He opined:
But the Post found it acceptable to run 100 articles and editorials on the subject of macaca and its implications of racism and bigotry. Anyone who thinks the active effort on the part of the Post and most every other newspaper connected to the commonwealth to promote the macaca story, to blow it completely out of proportion (it wasn't even a word prior to Allen's utterance), and, in doing so, to derail the Allen campaign, didn't in itself bring about Allen's defeat, is blind.
Our battle is not with our democrat opponents ... our battle is with the mainstream media. It's time for us to realize that once and for all ... and act - or react - accordingly.
