Skip to comments.ABC News scrambles to cover up Barack Obama’s attendance at VP debate moderator’s wedding

Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz, The Daily Caller has learned. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission, were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.
After TheDC made preliminary inquiries Monday to confirm Obamas attendance at the wedding, ABC leaked a pre-emptive statement to liberal-leaning news outlets including Politico and The Daily Beast Tuesday, revealing what may have been internal network pressure felt just days before Raddatz was scheduled to moderate the one and only vice-presidential debate Thursday night.
Both Politico and The Daily Beast jumped to ABC and Raddatzs defense. The Huffington Post, another liberal news outlet, joined them shortly thereafter, while calling unusual ABCs attempt to kill the story before it gained wide circulation.
On Monday evening ABC spokesman David Ford grudgingly confirmed Obamas attendance at the wedding, after shielding Raddatz in August

Typical Politburo activity...
All we need is Carney the carney to tell us “I personally know three or four Marthas with the same last name.”
“Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission”
I wonder if this might actual help Ryan as she might try to overcompensate for being obviously biased?
OK now it is time for Romney team to tell them to change the moderator or they will pull out of the VP debate...
Except that, if they’re still married, her husband works for the President. Isn’t that just a little, bitty, slight conflict-of-interest?
I recently rewatched the biden/Palin debate. I disagree... biden is a lying moron.
Can’t wait to hear RUSH on this one!
As is soviet Russia, Hitler’s Germany, North Korea and Iran, America has a state controlled press.
There is no peaceful solution to t he problem
Well...Isn’t it always the APPREARENCE OF IMPROPRIETY with these libs ???
I’m sure she’ll be pulled as moderater after this development. NOT.
Excellent points! The worst would be a dressing down of Ryan by a man that lost his wife and one year old daughter in a car crash 40 years ago. Joe is not as easy target as everyone seems to think he is. Ryan needs to keep this debate about Obama and his record. If he does a good job at that, Joe might be agreeing with him by the end of the debate.
ABC lied to America about Obama-the-CryptoMoslem.
ABC LIES like no other.
So this fits. It WILL be the talk of the entire
planet this month after the debate if she continues.
There is NO END to their CORRUPTION!
“And to think he is only one heartbeat away from being President of the United States; there has just got to be a better way to select these office holders.”
The LOSER of the presidential election used to become VP.
I like the idea, but any leftist freak I’ve ever mentioned it to hated it, so I’ve liked it even more.
Was just discussing this with a friend yesterday. We came to the same conclusion.
The fix is in. No way will it be tolerated that the obama/biden team lose two in a row.
1991? Who the heck was Obama back then? A nobody!
Or so they’d like us to think. Obviously he’s been “in” this cabal for quite some time.
Fixed it for you.
I seem to recall in Biden's debate with Sarah, he referenced walking into a restaurant and chatting it up with the locals. As it turned out, the establishment went out of business during Clinton's 1st term, maybe even earlier.
Biden often tries to come across as some folksy local-boy-who-made-good, but it's all phony!
(edit -- a quick search turned up the name Katie's Restaurant.)
