EDIT: A Rec For This Thread Means You are AGAINST The Obama Smear(!)

I wrote an angry post about this segment the other day and encouraged everyone to write Nightline and comment on the ABC Message Board:

I also sent it to Media Matters, although I don't see that they've covered it yet. Funny enough, a right wing hack version of Media Matters called "NewsBusters" posted an excerpt from this segment along with a transcript and explained that ABC's Jake Tapper had finally shown some "balance":

ABC pulled the direct video link (not that you need it with the YouTube clip above, that I believe some conservative posted online) but there is a link here at the ABC message board where you can also leave a comment:

And of course you can also give this YouTube clip online the 1 star rating it deserves, and if you can handle it, read and respond to some of the awful conservative comments (for example, some clown wrote "Maybe he'll choose Osama Bin Laden as his vp").

Finally, I also posted it at and hopefully someone in the media will cover this (Keith, Cenk, Media Matters, somebody, anybody?). And by cover I mean point out how horribly biased it is. If anybody wants to share and send it to other alternative media outlets, please do.
