Fact checking error? Yeah, right. I might have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night. And if Obama didn’t give them the information, where did they get it from? Pull it out of a hat? And if it was a fact checking error, why didn’t Obama point it out to them so it could be corrected? What a bunch of hooey.

Gee how does one come to the conclusion, in 1991, that a relatively unknown politician was born in Kenya?

An error that neither obama nor ANYONE in the company nor anyone in the world noticed this or called them on it?

I’m impressed.

So this agent just had a brain warp and thought “born in Kenya” sounds good! Yep, perfect Obamaton.

If it was just a “Simple mistake” on their part, they would have maybe said, he was born in Texas, or Florida, or some other place, but NO, they said he was born in KENYA, the exact place where Obama’s OWN aunt said he was born, so this woman is lying to protect Obama, what else is knew, the media and everyone else has been protecting this Commie freak since Day 1

LOL hilarious.

1) It was a “fact checking” error - i.e., someone TOLD HER that he was born in Kenya. Hmm I wonder who.

or

2) It’s just a Billion to One coincidence that she happened to mistakenly claim that The One was from Kenya, meanwhile, all these years later, it just happens to spring up again.

Good grief these people are absolutely shameless.

The article on Drudge says that the bio was used by Obama until 2007. If it was an error, wouldn’t he have corrected before 2007?

This just in from the MSM: A statement from the publisher of Dreams from My Father "I am sure you are aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Hannity's playing PRESIDENT! Obama (Obama! Obama! Mmmm mmmm mmm) audio version of his book where he talks of his drug use.. Our editors failed to notice the error. There was no drug use by PRESIDENT! Obama (Obama! Obama! Mmmm mmmm mmm). The error is the fault of the editors . . . ."

I’m reminded of how Nixon’s secretary showed how she could have been on the phone and accidentally hit the “erase” button with her foot. She would have had to have been “Elastic Woman”.

Obama must be the unluckiest person in the world to have so many factual errors made about him during his entire life.

"NOTHING MORE THAN A FACT CHECKING ERROR LIE THAT OBAMA LEFT UNCORRECTED TOLD FOR 16 YEARS" - Fixed yet again.

"NOTHING MORE THAN A LIE THE TRUTH THAT OBAMA TOLD FOR 16 YEARS" - Finally nailed it!

"1) It was a “fact checking” error - i.e., someone TOLD HER that he was born in Kenya. Hmm I wonder who."

With Obama, it's a fact checking error. When the Clintons were caught in lies, it was a "technical snafu."

NOT surprised at this turn of events, but am very surprised at the speed almost of light that it happened. NO time was wasted with this spin.

I’d say they were prepared knowing that was out there.

What it looks like to me is at Obama knew that would help him sell books whether it was true or not. That’s what liars do.

any published author will tell you, the author sends in the initial bio stuff...and undoubtedly checks it many times over before it is final!!!

(and one would think that such a brilliant author as obama would do this even more so!)

As a former reporter I notice the 5Ws of Journalism are again, as always, absent from the Picture.

WHO told you he was from Kenya to begin with?
WHAT is your process for fact checking things you publish?
WHERE did the information that led you to publish his Kenyan birthplace come from?
WHEN were you informed of such?
WHY do you believe now that this was an error and can you produce any prior retraction?

Can ANY actual journalist currently working in the media please step up and ask these questions?

Lets see.

Obama wasn't a politician in 1991. Supposedly he was a fledgling author. So, no problem saying that he was born in Kenya.

According to Breitbart, Obama's literary agent didn't change the bio until 2007. When Obama was being considered as a Presidential candidate.
