'Obsession' story criticized

Some readers are criticizing our decision to print a story on the "Obsession" video a day before the election. One reader said we are trying to sway the vote. Which way? I asked. The Oakland Press was among newspapers which distributed the DVD "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West." The Clarion Fund, author of the video, has been criticized for distributing "Obsession" as anti-Barack Obama propaganda in 12 swing states, even though the film was produced long before Obama's ascendancy as a candidate. Our goal in convening a group to watch and critique the DVD was an effort to give a chance for some feedback, and also to foster understanding.
