Obuscation in Public Discourse

Much has been made of the "terrible" words spoken by Obama's minister and mentor during the past week. Thanks to the development of YouTube, we can hear and see the parts of the speech that provide context to the few out takes that have been replayed ad nauseum by not only Fox Faux News but by others as well.
This link could be a teaching moment for all of us to beware of the snippets of information that are used for sensationalism in place of information. For to provide entertainment should not be the mission of any responsible news network.
