Skip to comments.API Admits Michelle Obama Tape Is A Hoax
Posted on 10/31/2008 9:02:34 PM PDT by mnehring
In a stunning revelation tonight, the OBN has learned that an audio tape, supposedly of an interview between Michelle Obama and the African Press International organization in Norway is a hoax.
In an interview with API's Chief Editor Korir, he explained that this hoax was requested by a member of the Obama campaign to keep his opposition distracted from several, high level meetings Obama was attending with Cuban President Rauel Castro.
Chief Editor Korir, however, has made it known that the discussions with the Obama camp, regarding this hoax, where recorded. In these recordings, an Obama spokesperson lays out specifically how they wanted this story to be created, and even made some derogatory comments about people of Alaskan descent.
API is currently under negotiations with Fox News, a subsidiary of NewsCorp, to play this tape on an episode of Hannity's America and Greta Wire.
Fox News has promised API $3 Million Dollars for exclusive rights to this tape. API is in the process of this transaction. Chief Editor Korir mentioned that there has only been a slight snag in the process as he paid Fox News the usual $10 Thousand Dollar transfer fee, but for some reason, he hasn't heard back. He is assuring us however, that the tape will air within 24 hours.
Watch for more breaking news on this story on the OBN.
LOL. I wonder how many people are going to believe this. Good job ;)
My reply is a hoax, and just by reading this you are also a hoax.
Well, here we go again ..*lol*
I just report, you decide..
Sherlock is currently reviewing his pile...
If he would have said Chavez, I might have believed it....
Go suck on a egg!
Just counting down until the moment I get zotted for this..
Seems to me someone in this deal has a vivid imagination. I read all these threads for the entertainment value- and if there really is such a tape, I will be amazed to say the least.
You almost got me.
I think after the 200th post about this I finally got it in my head that this was a hoax.
Anything else they say as far as I am concerned is worthless.
From what I’m reading on OBN, it looks like Fox News is sending Geraldo to investigate this. Although, for some reason, Geraldo arrived in Norway with no camera crew, no luggage, and no return ticket.
Is Iowahawk writing this stuff?
Actually, Obama with Castro is quite believable. API on the other hand, is not.
Ugh. API is like a bad rash....just when you think it’s gone it springs up in new places.
Good grief. What is the hoax, that there was a fake interview, or that the substance of the interview was fake. Or that none of the parties actually exist (please say Michelle Obama doesn’t really exist). I don’t know what the hoax is or why it was so important that there was a hoax.
IMMEDIATLY SEND WESTERN UNION $1500 USDOLLARS TO SECURE A SOLICITURE ON YOUR BEHALF?
Don’ be hatin’.
So now they’re onto a new hoax, a hoax about the hoax.....
Some people who kept posting those idiotic API bulletins long after it was obvious (to all sane people) that it was a pile of crap..... some of those people owe some serious APOLOGIES to everyone on this board.
We probably won’t hear much from those who aided and abetted the API hoaxters for quite awhile.....
If so, it would be the first API post to get zotted, and the only one that doesn’t deserve to be.
From what it seems, API hoaxed everyone into believing there was a tape of Michelle Obama. This was a hoax encouraged by Obama’s camp, and API has a tape of that. API is working with Fox to get them a copy and only has to pay some sort of wealth transfer fee to Fox. Geraldo has been sent to investigate and some guy named John Titor keeps showing up at the interviews with API saying something about robots.
Dude, you’ve been punked.
I am shocked and dismayed (Oh my!) (sarc)
Michelle Obama Tape Is as much of a Hoax as Barry’s revelation that his name is Steve.
ha, you’re right, I was going much too fast and didn’t really register what started the thead.... of course this is another b.s. piece but at least it’s entertaining whereas the API bulletins were simply tedious.
I check Snopes. The truth is, Fox News is a figment of your imagination & if you think you’ve seen it, you have your tinfoil hat twisted in the wrong direction. Remember, lefty loosy, righty tighty.
Wait a minute: If the report of a hoax is a hoax, are we back where we started?
What if there is a report that discounts all of these hoaxes, and that turns out to be a hoax?
Does this effect the space-time continuum?
Yeah, you are all geniuses. We should totally discount all otherwise believable stories if their source isn’t the main stream media. I mean, its the same old story right...
... sensational story about a politician, rumored about for days/weeks
... non-mainstream website runs with the story
... site and story is ridiculed and decried as patently rediculous by the administration and liberals in general.
... and then the found the blue dress.
Yep, lets wait till we see something on 60 minutes before we give it any attention.
There is also a pattern at API. When Chief Editor Korir makes a pronouncement, it provokes a flurry of comments. As the number approaches 1000, he makes another pronouncement.
Korir has a bevy of (apparently) female faithful, who respond swooningly to every new post of Chief Editor and do all they can to maintain the flock faithful. It is truly entertaining, but, sadly, time-consuming.
The difference between this and the other API posts is that one of our guys made this one up, and he did it to make a point, not to help Obama.
Fox pay millions of dollars for a tape, yeah right. Another BS story, this African Press is a big fraud.
LOL, I don't even believe THIS. If their lips are moving or their fingers are typing, they are lying.
ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! Obama Broadcasting Network! HAAAAAAA!!!
Good one, most excellent. :)
Are you serious? ROFL!!!!!!!!!! It’s a joke...it’s a joke...it’s a joke....and a really good joke...in my humble (not laughing) opinion. ;)
I'm with you, I don't see how people can discount African Press International with such rock hard proof like that. I mean, look at it, there is photographic proof the recording exists.
One of the several big differences is that the Clinton shenanigans were at least quite plausible and even highly likely based upon his track record, whereas the idea that the wife of the candidate would call one of the most obscure overseas websites in the world to sound off in idiotic and damaging (to the campaign) ways while being recorded was always straining credulity. Sure, stranger things have happened, but there was never a thread of plausibility to the API story.
This is turning into an excellent Freep experiment into how many people reply to the headline alone!
easy folks....just read...then chuckle....and move on...
Ha! I love good PUNishment.
It’s true, I confess, I barely got past the headline and then I sounded off. Guilty as charged. I hope I’ve learned my lesson.......
Geraldo arrived in Norway with no camera crew, no luggage, and no return ticket.
Say it ain’t so Joe! You are Joe?...what am I saying of course, we are all Joe’s.
Truth is stranger than fact.
Okay you asked for it.
Zot meister: Wherever you are, here is a job for you.
I couldn't help myself
