How in the world did the Gainsville Minister get so much media attention?

    With the economy in the tank and home foreclosures likely to exceed one million this year, what do we expect the MSM to write about with their anointed one in office? Certainly not the important stuff.

    WHY DID THIS WHOLE GROUND ZERO THING HAPPEN?

    THE INITIAL SPARK WAS AT THE WH DINNER, HIS ENDORSEMENT OF THE
    PROJECT. FROM THERE THE COMMUNITY AGITATOR BECAME THE
    INTERNATIONAL AGITATOR, SIMPLE. SIMILAR TO ARIZONA !

    BERNIE THIS QUESTION IS TOO EASY, THE LEFTIST MEDIA HAD TO DIRECT
    THEIR HATE TO SOMEONE, NEEDED SOMEONE TO TRASH. JONES
    WAS AN EASY TARGET, HE COULDNT DEFEND HIMSELF. THEY
    WANTED TO DISTRACT FROM IMAM AND OBAMA.

    Good question Bernie. It just so happens that I just read an article a few days ago from the BBC asking this same question. There are a telling couple of sentences in the article that appear to my untrained eye to support your case:

    (Writing about late July when the story was still very new)

    “It is clear that at that point, campaigners in America and abroad were paying close attention to the story. But Mr Jones’ Koran-burning plans had yet to make the headlines of the mainstream media. Still, he was sufficiently well known to provide a colourful, provocative voice in pieces about extreme views of Islam in the US.”

    Not sure if I am allowed to post links but the full article is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11266746
