Apparently CNN Election Center's Campbell Brown is the only news anchor with the decency and the courage to denounce the ignorant claims that are still being made about Senator Obama's race and religion, namely, the allegations that the Illinois senator is a muslim and most recently, that he is an arab. While McCain did correct his thinking impaired supporter and say that his opponent was not an Arab, he followed up by explaining that Obama was a "decent family man."
While the news outlets were quick to show the exchange they were even quicker to point out how McCain denounced these comments. What most of them failed to do was denounce the idea that being an Arab or a Muslim is itself a negative trait. This racism in the country and the media cannot stand if America is to live up to its founding principles.
So congratulations Campbell Brown. Keep up the good work, at least one MSM anchor is.
