beyond some of our old rash april wounds. then, in fact, we have no choice. we have no choice if we are to con on the path of a more perfect -- >> reporter: a year ago president obama publicly reacted to the arrest of his friend, henry lewis gates, outside of gates home by a white police officer. >> i think it is fair to say, number one, any of us would be angry. number two, that the cambridge police acted stupidly. >> reporter: that offhand remark ignited another passionate debate and was within days followed by this remark. >> i could have calibrated those words differently. >> reporter: the hope here at the whousz is that this firestorm has mostly been doused and can get back focusing on the president's agenda. erica? >> chip reid, thanks. whether or not the firestorm has been doused is open for interpretation. joining us now conservative author and commentator ann coulter and analyst tanya acker. good to have you with us this
7:09 am
morning. it is open for interpretation. there was so much talk after president obama was elected we were now in this post-racial america which clearly this past week shows that's not the case. ann, why does this keep happening? >> i don't think it has been post-racial for us. with this administration, mean, as your package shows, you had the president calling sergeant crowley saying he was acting stupidly. up to now, you have this -- you know, prosecutors the new black panthers on the ground they won't prosecute. sonia sotomayor saying she was a wise latina and ruling against white firemen who didn't get promotions because of their race. it has been nonstop, nonstop, nonstop. >> but why? >> i think we found out from the journal in this large part and that's liberal journalists, hundreds of them, chitchatting about how to protect obama and, you know, they are openly saying
7:10 am
that we are in trouble ask we need to distract from what's going on. let's just randomly call the conservative racist. so liberals do this all the time to distract from what's going on. >> i'm guessing you don't agree with that, tanya. >> speaking of distracts, ironic. with all due respect to ann, a lecture on race relations from someone that says she does many need to be perfected. moving past that, i think when you look at this incident let's not get distracted of what happened. a woman's whose father was murdered by a white farmer which there was never an indictment, never prosecution, was telling a story about racial redemption. and what we saw happened on the right, an dry breibart ran with the story. i expect selected it itting from the breibarts and hannitys. what's problematic here is what you are seeing is that the mainstream press is being cowed by the right wing journalism. folks on the right making these things up. taking things out context. gosh darn it, why doesn't the
7:11 am
rest of the media report on this? this poor woman was krusfied until we found out what really happened. >> how much of that is either side? these things happen on both sides. it is not just one side of the other. kowtowing to another side. we live in a society, people don't take the time they need to check the facts. >> i would contest it happens on both sides. things taken out context, i never said you need to be perfected. accurately described the newscast. how about the photo as msnbc is describing white men bringing guns to obama rallies where they only show the gun. you don't see the black man with the gun. run by john pedes that on obama's transition team shows an alleged nazi at the pee party announcing i'm racist. you -- >> saw footage that was ran months ago showing certain crowds at rallies and they were from a different event. this happened across the board. >> pulled back there the center
7:12 am
for american progress and it is all -- it is all tea party. saying go home, you are not one of us. you have cbs news reporting itself that john lewis was called the "n" word 15 times. that's a lie. that's a despicable lie. it never happened. why hasn't cbs news apologized? >> why the zoon back and forth on both sides is there any way to resolve it and get a conversation going? >> certainly. i think we have to depend on -- depends on who is trying to have the conversation. i think that there are plenty of well-meaning americans who do want to try to deal with the issue of race and in a responsible way without the name calling. without trying to suspend racism on either side. and i think this really -- matter of having that conversation and respectful and productive way. >> i appreciate your both coming in to have that conversation this morning. ann coulter and tanya acker, thank you for your time. betty nguyen has a look at the rest of the headlines this friday morning. good morning. more severe weather is expected in the midwest today. right on the heels of the storm front that caused widespread

days makes. ben bernanke yesterday reassures the markets after spooking them wednesday by telling investors and americans he's willing to do whatever it takes to push bore othering costs down and make them lower so americans can get more money if the jobs picture does than recover quickly. we also heard positivity from ups. this morning we heard from microsoft and american express about the positivity they are seeing as far as business and consumer demand. >> in the midst of this, i understand several big wall street banks are about to be taken for task for huge bonus payments they made during the height of the financial crisis. >> that's correct. kenneth feinberg, obama's appointed pay czar, is going to release the report today, that shows 17 big banks in this country put out $1.6 billion in bonuses that he will say were ill-advised. not lawful but ill-advised.
7:16 am

7:44 am
sounding like somebody that could have done what she said. in addition to the tape one noypt time, you know, she says what kind of man are you, you know, hitting a woman holding a by by and knocking out two teeth. his comment according to the tape is you deserved this. again, that's not a denial. that's awfully close to a confession and admission. the case -- when you look at the text now, you have him saying i wasn't safe for you last night, again, if you are the prosecutor you are saying not a confession but certainly not a denial and awfully close to admitting that indeed he did what she says. >> quite an arsenal. also the accusations of attemptattempt ed extortion. >> this is starting to sound like a law school final exam question. when you throw in all of those scenarios and say okay, now, you figure it out, you know, you are hearing about the possibility of a civil lawsuit here. you are hearing about dissatisfaction with whatever that settlement or proposed settlement was in terms of how much money would exchange hands.
7:45 am
i'm sure on mel gibson's side, we heard some of it, there are suggestions that this is -- there is more to the story. more might be this idea of trying to get money from him in an inappropriate fashion. >> we should point out this is in the investigation phase. the fact that all these things are being released, obtained by the one website, does that tan the case? >> interesting. sounds like it should. probably not. you know, how that all got released might be the subject of some other legal problems. but if indeed it is him on the tape and hasn't been doctored and a court would look at that and say we are satisfied with it, it probably wouldn't interfere with that prosecution. that will have to fall on its own mayor fits jack, thanks. always good to have you with us. still ahead this morning, our super fan is living the dream. we will talk to him about what's happening at the annual wild convention. this is "the early show." on th. let's get better prices... and better paint.
