CHICAGO--John McCain's campaign ads use "false and misleading statements" about the relationship between Barack Obama and Bill Ayers, according to an analysis by FactCheck.org.
Voters may differ in how they see Ayers, or how they see Obama's interactions with him. We're making no judgment calls on those matters. What we object to are the McCain-Palin campaign's attempts to sway voters - in ads and on the stump - with false and misleading statements about the relationship, which was never very close. Obama never "lied" about this, just as he never bragged about it. The foundation they both worked with was hardly "radical." And Ayers i

Factcheck.org should change their name to ExcusesforObama.org.
Try running the search term “Larry Sinclair” on FactCheck.org and was what (doesn’t) happen.
The Annenberg Challenge was administered by Obama.
FactCheck.org need to check Conflict_Of_Interest.org
like some ancient sage used to say on a tv show “SURPRISE,SURPRISE,SURPRISE”
I think we should woute the headline as:
“FactCheck.org concludes McCain spot on.”
It’s as honest as the editing job the MSM does whenever they quote Gov. Palin.
People need to read Stanley Kurtz and Stephen Diamond to get the real scoop regarding Obama and Ayers.
Funny. Type in ‘birth certificate’ on the site and look at the second entry.
They are fooling millions....the people all around us everyday.
This is hilarious - in the “about” link of factcheck.org they indicate that they are fully funded by the Annenberg Foundation and they don’t indicate in the story that they have a conflict of interest by watering down information about Barak and Bill Ayers Annenburg Challenge activities.
Factcheck pretends to be unbiased. The keyword is pretends.
Fox and Friends did a factcheck on Factcheck.org this morning. It appears Factcheck.org has its own problems when it comes to getting the facts straight. Losers. Trying to save their boy, they are throwing away their own credibility.
Silly me. I thought that was the point of a political ad.
You saw that too, huh. What retards.
Why Ayers And Dohrn Matter

Let Ayers, and Dohrn tell you, themselves in this interview with Connie Cung from 1998, (long after Obama became acquainted with them):
It’s a sad world. We need to fact check the fact checkers.
It’s about time Annenberg became involved in the ways the family money is spent and not let left wing organizations use his money much less name .. and then when caught, use the Annenberg friendship with Ronald Reagn to justify what they do as mainstream or conservative sanctioned.
Whatever happened to “Defund the Left?” It’s not unlike the 9/11 terrorists using American planes to destroy American buildings. No real investment on their part.
