I know I go on about Thought for the Day but it really is like the five minute hate. Take this morning. Rev Joel Edwards popped up to tell us all about the wonders of Obama ( “400% increase in death threats than George W Bush”, he repeated) and suggested that perhaps Jimmy Carter was right that those who opposed The One are indeed racists. Edwards is entitled to his opinions, of course, but isn’t it surprising how frequently the content of TFTD dovetails into the broader BBC narrative?
