Cataldi on Obama

Days after his interview with Barack Obama that became, thanks to the "typical white person" comment, a national controversy that lasted days, Angelo Cataldi has written about the kerfuffle in his Philly Metro column. Referring to a CNN producer who refused to put sidekick Al Morganti on the air after Morganti said he "didnít think it was a big deal at all," Cataldi writes this:

I learned Iím probably not much better than these media leeches seeking the daily blood of controversy. In many ways, I do the same thing. I come up with a strong opinion, and then I look for facts that will support the bias ó discounting contradictory evidence.
Facts? Who cares about facts? That admission should not be a surprise to anyone who's ever heard Cataldi's show.

The biggest surprise there, though, is that Angelo went to the Columbia School of Journalism. Say what?
