Bill Kristol Cites Newsmax & Gets Punked

Bill Kristol once again embarrasses himself on the New York Times op-ed pages. Kristol used a Newsmax article as gospel truth. The Jim Davis piece claimed that Obama was in the congregation the the day Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. made his controversial "white arrogance" sermon. The problem is that Obama was in Miami that day. Obama was campaigning in Miami that day. AOL has a video of Obama speaking in Miami on July 22, 2007.

Newsmax's Ronald Kessler is sticking to his story. He is claiming that Obama was in Chicago and Miami at the same time. I'm really not making this up.

While both the early morning and evening service allowed Sen. Obama to attend the service and still give a speech in Miami, Mr. Davis stands by his story that during one of the services he attended during the month of July, Senator Obama was present and sat through the sermon given by Rev. Wright as described in the story.

Kristol was forced to print a retraction.

In this column, I cite a report that Sen. Obama had attended services at Trinity Church on July 22, 2007. The Obama campaign has provided information showing that Senator Obama did not attend Trinity that day. I regret the error.

Kristol is making mistakes constantly in his column. The neocon pundit wrongly attributed a Michael Medved quote to Michelle Malkin. The man's sloppliness is staggering.

What kills me people people like Kristol and Glenn Reynolds is how they lament about inaccuracy in the so-called liberal media. The Weekly Standard and Instapundit are conservative giants of factually inaccurate information. These people have an allergic retraction to truth that is pathological.

This is a metablogging issue, I guess (and who but me to talk about those?), but on our end of the spectrum, the Clintonistas have a lot to answer for with this bogus story. Primarily SusanUnPC and No Quarter, whose lack of integrity on this matter reaches Reynoldsian bounds.
