In his latest column, Bill Kristol falsely claimed -- based on reporting by Newsmax, of all things -- that Obama had attended Trinity Church last July 22nd, when Wright blamed blamed the “arrogance” of the “United States of White America” for much global suffering.
The Obama campaign responded with an aggressive fact-check last night, saying that, no, in fact Obama was not at the service.
Finally, at least half a day later, Kristol has appended the following to his column:
In this column, I cite a report that Sen. Obama had attended services at Trinity Church on July 22, 2007. The Obama campaign has provided information showing that Sen. Obama did not attend Trinity that day. I regret the error.
"Report" is a rather kind way of describing the original Newsmax piece, but hey, at least Kristol finally got around to correcting it. One has to wonder how Times editors feel about the fact that their august Op ed page is actually printing information based on the "reporting" of such a comically disreputable outlet. Link
Winger reporters are oh-so-sorry about the mistake. Bill Kristol and Newsmax....shocking, isn't it,.....I'm referring to the apology. This all reminds me of David Addington, The Dick's right hand nut, and how he stated....paraphrasing...."we're going to push and push and push some more until someone stops us."
That's what the reprehensible Kristol and Newsmax are doing.
The reason for all the Obama/Wright bluster couldn't be any clearer, could it?
