SO I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT THIS HEADLINE WAS ON REUTERS: While McCain Raises Money For Hurricane Victims Obama Set To Jet Off For Geneva. Closer examination revealed that it was on a Reuters blog-aggregation page. For a minute there, the whole world was upside down.
UPDATE: Reader Martin Shoemaker emails: “FYI: the story of Senator Obama in Geneva is false. Yes, there is a Hollywood fundraiser for Americans in Geneva (all those working class folks the Democrats represent, no doubt). Yes, the fundraiser continues despite the hurricane. But no, Senator Obama is not there, and has no control over it. . . .I’m no fan of Senator Obama, but I’m a fan of the facts.” As are we all. But a false report under the Reuters brand? Unheard of! Here’s a report on the Geneva fundraiser.
