Has the Clinton campaign "darkened" video of Obama, like Newsweek did with OJ?
Mentioned yesterday and today on the show briefly. From Daily Kos with additional postings here and here. You can see the actual ad on the http://www.hillaryclinton.com/video/145.aspx website. Is this an accident? An idiot working in the campaign or ad agency? Will Senator Clinton disavow it? Click "read more" to see the graphics below:

Update - now there's a Daily Kos diarist saying this is a tempest in a teapot and those of us "startled by this" are essentially just technically dumb. This diarist may well be right:


First is the capture from Clinton's ad attacking Obama:

And the screen capture from Hillary's website itself:

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
