There's a story that's gotten absolutely no air time that should be more widely discussed.

Walter Cronkite, dean emeritus of American TV journalism made a statement on Larry King Live last Friday that just defies rational thought. Larry played a video of bin Laden's latest rant and asked Walter what he made of it.

His response:

What we just heard. So now the question is basically right now, how will this affect the election? And I have a feeling that it could tilt the election a bit. In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing. The advantage to the Republican side is to get rid of, as a principal subject of the campaigns right now, get rid of the whole problem of the al Qaqaa explosive dump. Right now, that, the last couple of days, has, I think, upset the Republican campaign.

And Larry's response to Walter's comment:

Are there enough undecideds to tilt this? Or what do you think of the whole election picture?

Time frickin' out! Cronkite says the equivalent of "they have bin Laden under their control" and Larry acts like he doesn't hear it? Where does he think we have him stashed - - Area 51?
