Carson’s Right: In 2008 the Media Ignored More than 30 Lies In Obama’s Bio
For just a moment, forget about how the DC Media allowed President Obama to PrettySpeech his way out of a 20 year relationship with a racist, anti-Semitic preacher. For just a moment, forget about how the DC Media ignored the bombshell that Obama lied about his relationship with a terrorist. As we watch the racially-motivated DC Media lie through omission and commission about “inaccuracies” in Ben Carson’s bio, let us never forget that during the 2008 election, this same DC Media covered up more than 30 inaccuracies in Obama’s biographies.
First off, I need to stop to ensure I give every bit of credit for this piece to Young Conservatives, a site that put this incredible list together over the weekend. Nothing below would have been possible without their fine work. Please check it out.
Prior to Obama winning the 2008 presidential election, no less than The New York Times found a lie in Obama’s biography. During a Memorial Day campaign appearance, Obama claimed an uncle of his had liberated Auschwitz during WWII. When he was called on it, Obama lied again and said it was Buchenwald. The truth was that it was Ohrdruf, a sub-camp of Buchenwald.
Another 2008 New York Times article, that was buried under a headline that had nothing to do with the falsehoods the reporter found, reported that Obama had “added some writerly touches in his memoir to make the challenges he overcame seem more dramatic.”
Finally, prior to winning the 2008 presidential election, no less than The Washington Post discovered that Obama lied about the role the Kennedy family took in helping his own family. In an effort to craft a mythological Camelot Connection, Obama falsely claimed the Kennedy family paid to for his “Kenyan father to travel to America on a student scholarship and thus meet his Kansan mother.”
Two whoppers from an inexperienced, insurgent presidential candidate running in large part on his biography.
