LA Times has video of Obama praising a PLO operative, refuses to release it

John McCain's campaign accuses the Los Angeles Times of "intentionally suppressing" a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist. Editor Russ Stanton says: "The Los Angeles Times did not publish the videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who did so on the condition that we not release it. The Times keeps its promises to sources."

I assume the media will inform readers about Obama's links to the PLO after the election.
You don't have to wonder what the LA Times would do if they had a damning tape of John McCain. Or Joe the plumber.
