Rachel Maddow Explores the Roots of Breitbart's Smear Tactics

This is a pretty good deconstruction of the race volatility that Glenn Beck and Andrew Breitbart have been turning the volume up on.

As I write at United Liberty, the Obama administration deserves its share of blame for running from this issue as fast as it can. If presidents are good for anything in this country, it's being able to talk directly to the American people and shape the dynamic. If Obama doesn't take advantage of that one power he is allowed, it's going to be taken instead by the likes of Breitbart.
