News Flash!!: Obamas campaign manager offers 3 million dollars to API in connection with Michelle Obama tape to be aired by Fox News Network
Posted by africanpress on October 29, 2008
Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API was contacted by Obamas Campaign Manager.
Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.
Obamas campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.
Ten days ago API received the first request to accept 2 million US dollars by Mr Ed Hale, President of Plains Radio, Texas - USA, in an effort to suppress the information from reaching the public before the coming US Presidential elections.
API has now taken a decision to contact the American Embassy in Oslo, Norway as soon as possible in order to report the matter and hand over the evidence for investigative purposes.
The Chief editor is expected to travel to New York where he will appear on an interview in one of the shows that will air the tape.
The absurd bullshit saga continues. Why do we pay attention?
Maybe that’s what was holding things up-a bidding war! LOL!
I’ll give you 6000 Quatloos!
I really don’t know. It certainly does get more interesting?
I can’t sleep and I’m bored, I’ll admit it.
Agreed. THIS IS A DISTRACTION FROM THE **VERY REAL** TAPE THE LA TIMES IS WITHHOLDING!!
I agree with that. Let’s hope another copy surfaces.
Can’t wait. . .
Newt put a 50 k bounty of sorts out on Greta’s show and all this says is whoever is gonna put out the LA tape.....here is 3 mil not to...
Right after I get that Nigerian Banker to send me my inheritance, I'll buy the tape myself.
Because if you step back and look at it from a different perspective it is funny. It reminds me of one of those “The Gods Must Be Crazy” movies. Or the “Three Stooges”.
It is like trying to figure out what bigger stunt they will pull next to get attention. “But wait there is more”. If you look at as a comedy it is sort of funny, IMHO.
lol, i just deleted one of those an hour ago.
the last one i got, i sent them the address of the arizona attorney general as to who to contact.
Because its real and just seems too good to be true... but there it is, they don’t pay out 3 million for hoaxes!
You ROCK girl!
I love “The Gods Must Be Crazy”. I wanted to show it to my kids and I could only find 1 video store within 20 miles that had it.
Saw that we got three in a row. I saw that means time to buy a lotto ticket.
These guys remind me of the scene where the main actor is trying to winch the jeep out of the river and then gets distracted by the gal getting caught in the bushes. It just keeps getting funnier all the time!
this story about the 3 million may also be a hoax
I doing my nightly check in while waiting for the benedryl to make me tired, and I decided to look at the site.
I do have to say I was surprised. Still on sure, but this is bold.
You’re right! This must be the Obamaniacs following the Clintonistas lead: if you get caught at one thing, keep leaking others issues so no one can focus on just one.
Guinness anyone? :)
I’ll offer $27.50 for the tape
Ping. Just when we thought things couldn't get more interesting, along comes this.
Should be still NOT sure.
It seems that this election everything is in play and I have never seen anything like it.
At least with the Clintons we already knew them.
The “devil” that you know is better than the one you don’t.
I guess if there really is something, on any of these tapes, and the Khalid tape is a certainty, we’ll find out hopefully before the election but not before millions have already voted.
lol, is that american or canadian?
I don’t think it’s a problematic distraction per se.
By that I mean I don’t believe any real effort on our side has been put on this story so if it’s a phony, there’s no net loss for us that I can see. The possibility of it existing isn’t going to change our GOTV or cause us to radically divert time, energy and resources to make it appear.
It’d be nice if it did exist of course but my gut tells me this is some bizarre publicity stunt. It’s a fun throughline for the election cycle though, isn’t it? lol
All that being said, if there really is an audio, I will most gladly eat my words with a large helping of crow and do it with a goofy grin planted on my face.
I didn’t know until after I watched the movie again with my kids, that the “little bugger” had died.
Oh, what is the fraction of the us dollar is that?
He did? Anyway, those were funny movies! Beware of coke bottles and shooting goats!
after the stock market meltdown its all I have left
i’m laughing, but rather laugh than cry?
i only have a small 401k now, and they are going to take it.
the only reason it had gone up as much as it did (and down) was it was in stocks, not 3% per anum in some darn “lockbox”.
LOL thats what I had just done. Benadryl FTW! I take it for allergies though lol
Its NUTS really!
my kids are used to a different kind of humor (courtesy of nickelodeon), but after a while they were laughing. I did have to explain the coke bottle though.
Poor “little bugger”. He didn’t make much filming the movies. I only saw the first one. He made at least 3.
Ya, that’s what I take it for too. I have rescue dogs and cats. Never used to have allergies to animals.
I am allergic to marxists, communists, and community agitators.
If API comes out with a tape, I just hope it’s not a fraud / acted out phone call. We need honest reporting and real investigative journalists. Not girls who carve “B”s in their face.
Right now, I’ll put the possibility this is ligit at about 40% (It could have reached the 50/50 toss up, but the API site looks like garbage and must be run by amateur web masters. (Not that I could do better.. I’m just saying is all. :) ) )
This is the AP Chief in the comments section or supposedly him and there are some that are eating this stuff up, lol:
Do not take this light folks. I have a family that I love very much.
I am scared now. But at the same time, I am confident the lawyer wiill be of support immediately he arrives hers. thank God, I am telling myself what have I put myself into. I now wish she never called me!!!!!!
I am scared folks! It is not a joke. I know. and I feel it in my heart.
The money issue started with ED 10 days ago and I never understood it. I posted all the emails about the money on the site at the time. Now I see where we are heading to - bribe or intimidation.
Soon my Fox people must say something in support of me. This is what i need now.
Chief Editor Korir
I still am not convinced, but it is entertaining.
I would like to see the “laughing with the terrorist” tape aired.
Backwards B’s at that.
Mine eventually got it too! I haven’t seen Part two for a few years but I remember it was funny in that offbeat way too.
I really don’t know what to believe...
I’d love to hear the Obama campaign pleading for the tape!
I’ll put the possibility that this is legit at around 0.01%
No, let me make that 0.0000000001%
From Dumb and Dumber, “So you’re telling me there is still a chance”?
...and saying, 'promise me you're not recording this conversation...'
Patience. There's as much for as there is against IMO. If they are Kenyans who have suffered, or have family who have been perhaps killed in the Odinga fiasco - there's the motivation right there...and no amount of money would compensate.
LOL! A worthy offer...
I'll go $27.51... (These Apis are such tools! Give it a friggin' break, will ya?)
