Here’s a great column about the agenda setting set by the media over Katrina.

On ABC News’ “This Week” last Sunday, George Stephanopoulos asked one of those compound questions that can be only refuted only by Jesuitical parsing: “Did government neglect turn a natural disaster into a human catastrophe and was it rooted in racism?” In the course of “interviewing” Sen. Barack Obama (D-Illinois), Stephanopoulos sometimes dispensed with questions altogether, preferring to make statements, such as this: “So many people in this country have looked at so many of the victims being African-American, the sluggish federal response and said racism has to be at play.” To which Obama, a cautious enough fellow, answered that the “incompetence” he espied in the Bush administration was “color-blind.” Of course, such a tepid response wasn’t good enough for the ex-Clinton White House spinmeister, who came back at Obama with, “But it was racism, I guess is the question.”

Incredible.
