Skip to comments.DNC scrambles to deflate Obama video before Daily Caller story published
Posted on 10/02/2012 11:55:55 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach
The Democratic National Committee armed with the help of dismissive tweets from a variety of journalists scrambled Tuesday night to attack The Daily Caller for its videos of President Obamas controversial race comments in 2007 before the story was even published.
Using comments from reporters speculating on TheDCs report, the Democrats quickly worked to dismiss the story it hadnt seen yet which was teased Tuesday afternoon on Sean Hannitys radio show and on the Drudge Report by calling it lame.
At about 7:30 p.m. ET, the DNC Rapid Response team sent an email to reporters titled That was Lame, listing instant reaction to the latest lame Drudge/Hannity desperation tactics.
The email merely included tweets from journalists before the story was published expressing skepticism and disinterest and the mistaken claim that the video had been published before.
The tweets used by the Democratic National Committee came from reporters at organizations including Politico, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, The New York Times, New York Magazine and the Atlantic.
The mere prospect that videos of Obama talking about race and his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, would be published had the committee quickly working to kill the story.
In an attempt to link the story to Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the DNC also sent out an old story about Romney saying he would not make Wright a campaign issue.

H/T to Drudge.
“Ignore the Racist behind the podium.”
Hillary does it better. Even Algore does it better.
Predictable, totally predictable......
Be sure and see the tweets ....following the advertisements.
Yep. The trolls were out in full force across the conservative blogosphere tonight.
And some “wet-pants conservatives” couldn’t help but step all over the story with “Obastard helping” comments like:
nothing new here
what’s the use
it’s a dud
They get to be cool and cynical and can’t be bothered to use the information to beat Obama over the head with it.
They got a hammer but complained it wasn’t an atomic bomb.
You nailed that! The video is rich with 0bummer hypocrisy, flip-flops, cynicism about America, race-based class warfare mentality and colored throughout with his utter phoniness.
Hypocrites! All of ‘em! These are the same people that pounced on Romney for pandering to HIS own base with the 47% video! 0bama is doing the same thing here. That is the first thing I thought of when I watched that video.
Dung is as dung does.
Angry Black Man
What I'm not seeing is the full video was not played then.
We're seeing things not seen before by America.
Why isn't this out there?
Don't agree with the nay sayers. This could be important.
See link at post #12..they are discussing the clip with some callins.
Hannity explained that the vid was old but the telling parts had been left out..yet Madcow et al were laughing their a$$es off and ignoring this.
Yep. The first thing I noticed when the story broke on the FR thread; “conservatives” anxious to shoot it down..
