    of the Obama/Wright "goddamn America" trash that was being pushed by a conservative newspaper (I forget which one).

    The paper said "newspapers are reporting" that Obama was there during Rev, Wright's speech. It turned out the only newspaper that was reporting it was their own article from weeks earlier based on an anonymous source.

    It was then later picked up by other newspapers, who were then embarrassed by their lack of simple fact checking (though some tried to cover themselves by explaining Obama could have flown in an helicopter to the airport to catch a red-eye back to Chicago, then hopping into a drag-racing taxi to make it in time for Rev. Wright's tirade against America. Great stuff).
