In putting together my article about Rev. Jeremiah Wright's opposition to the NYT's coverage of him, his church and Obama, this quotation from Wright is particularly insightful.

“If Barack gets past the primary, he might have to publicly distance himself from me,” Wright told the NYT's Jodi Kantor in March 2007. “I said to Barack personally, and he said yeah, that might have to happen.”
