LA Times Blog: Hillary Supporter Set Up Wright Press Event

Gee. I am so surprised by this accusation of what amounts to a sophisticated dirty trick.
...It was the Rev. Dr. Barbara Reynolds, a former editorial board member of USA Today who teaches at the Howard University School of Divinity. An ordained minister, as New York Daily News writer Errol Louis points out in today's column, she was introduced at the press club event as the person "who organized" it.

But guess what? She's also an ardent longtime booster of Obama's sole remaining competitor for the Democratic nomination, none other than Sen. Hillary Clinton of New York... [Picture: The Rev.

Dirty trick? Are you nuts, Rabbi? Obama's minister is the one who made the outrageous comments in the first place, and as a result, a worthy target for the news.

"Reverend Wright is newsworthy, period" is the reason for the invitation for "Reverend" Wright to speak at the National Press Club, according to National Press Club President Sylvia Smith.

Regardless of how he came to be invited to speak, nobody put words in his mouth.
