Suddenly Media Interested in Bill Ayers

Perhaps the unrepentant domestic terrorist friend of Barack Obama did his part avoiding the media, but most of the media certainly lacked in pursuing him. Suddenly, now that that Barack Obama has been elected, the media are interested in extending this America hater’s fifteen minutes of fame. Good Morning America is promoting their exclusive interview with Bill Ayers, which will most likely be a puff-piece interview touting how he is really a harmless professor who lives in Obama’s neighborhood. Maybe they will let him promote his newly reissued book on the Weather Underground too! If so, perhaps they will ask him about this interesting quote in the book’s new afterword:

We had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign,” he writes.

What convenient timing for Mr. Ayers to tell everyone of his close family friendship he had with the Obamas. Perhaps Good Morning America will corner him with this important question, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. Maybe they will ask him about his plan for socialism to take over America, but I wouldn’t get my hopes up. The fact the media are only showing interest in this man after the Obama is safely on his way to the White House speaks volumes.
