“The Obama Version Of Swiftboating”

Tuesday, February 19, 2008  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Did Barack Obama ever claim on the floor of the senate that he’d been in Cambodia on Christmas eve?

If not, he’s got nothing to worry about.

As for Matt Lauer’s worry about race being used against Obama, perhaps the Today Show should contact Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell for some expertise on playing the race card.

The NBC move into full-fledged Obama support is an editorial choice, and fine by me. The network’s center-right audience will decide whether to watch anyway, just as left wingers often listen to my show knowing full well my transparent political leanings.

But attributing the goon squad tactics already used by Team Hillary to the GOP is just lousy reporting, a sign of deeply dishonest agenda journalism. Declare for Obama and be done with it, but don’t dress up Hillary’s assaults on Obama and brand them as the GOP’s.
