The New York Post has corrected a report that wrongly quoted President Barack Obama badmouthing NBC’s Chuck Todd.
The Post’s initial report, published Saturday, quoted Obama as calling the “Meet the Press” moderator “sad” while on a visit to a Washington, D.C., bookstore. As we pointed out yesterday, the president was actually referring to the picture of himself on the jacket of Todd’s new book, “The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House.”
In its correction, the Post said the story “was based on a pool report from President Obama’s bookstore visit. Video of the event, released later, shows it’s more likely Obama is referring to the picture of himself on the cover of the book when he says ‘he’s just sad’ — and is not referring to author Chuck Todd.”
99.999999% of all corrections by the MSM get buried deeper than Jimmy Hoffa but this one involved making The Lightbringer look like he might be in the midst of a lover’s quarrel with one of the cheer leading squad. So it is of the utmost importance that the public know that the president was being self effacing.
For the first time ever.
