Last night, Breitbart.com released a video of President Barack Obama fully embracing radical Marxist Harvard Professor Derrick Bell. Now, predictably, the mainstream media is circling the wagons around the president and trying to distract away from the real issue: Barack Obama is a radical and his political philosophy was built by people like Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright and Derrick Bell.

Notice how CNN host Soledad O'Brian tries to cut off Amy Holmes, who happens to be black, when she defends the production of the video and the vetting of President Obama.

"This is an indictment of the mainstream media that did not open this conversation back in 2008 with the full video, with the full audio, it did not and we didn't have this conversation for the American people. We didn't broach this to then candidate Senator Obama to discuss his background which is all fair," Holmes said.

To answer O'Brian's question about where the "bombshell" is, I give you Michelle Malkin.
