This is what an actual investigative report of the Obama-Ayers link looks like on TV:
CNN's Drew Griffin reports that Obama and Ayers funded niche lefty causes and Jeremiah Wright's church. And a number of sources who attended Obama's coming out party hosted by Ayers in 1995 dispute the Obama camp's portrayal of that meeting:
Isn't that a little more interesting for viewers than reporters' analysis of McCain's strategy of "playing" the "Ayers card"?
You'd think that more journalists would want to focus on Obama's distortion of the truth, but it seems that mainstream reporters would prefer to play the bigot card on McCain by suggesting that Ayers-related attacks are "racially-tinged" and designed to challenge Obama's "Americanness".
