America is going to have to make a decision pretty quickly. Will they hold accountable the liberal leftist media?

The phrase "Editgate" established itself virtually overnight. It fit so well. This useful compound merges "edit," in reference to NBC's incendiary editing (http://bit.ly/Ia5iRe) of George Zimmerman's 911 call, and "gate," the catch-all suffix used to describe a corrupt mess of deception and obfuscation. Already "Editgate" is being used more expansively to include other distortions in the Trayvon Martin case, including ABC's compression of the police videotape to obscure (http://abcn.ws/I7A9v8) Zimmerman's head wound and CNN's absurdly imaginative translation (http://bit.ly/Io7uk1) of the Zimmerman word "cold" into the nearly archaic "coons."

Together, these three deceptions -- and there will be more -- have established Editgate as the most consequential high-level fraud in the left's long history of what might be called "race-gating." By this, I mean the purposeful media corruption of a racially oriented story.

The media's willingness to lie for the cause should shock no one to the right of Bill Ayers. What is particularly troubling about Editgate is that the major media, which once served as a firewall against fraud, now seem eager accomplices in its commission.
