There's a new Obama flap in town and this one is about an anti-Semitic post that appeared on the portion of Obama's campaign site that's open to the public. Charles offers this nugget:
There are hundreds, possibly thousands, of posts that refer to the “Jewish lobby” at the Obama site. I stopped looking at the results on page 10.
The Jed Report does a nice take down of this claim in "LGF is crying wolf and it ticks me off" and here are the main findings:
- There were one hundred posts (10 posts per page, 10 pages.) Not "hundreds," not "thousands," but one hundred.
-Only 9 of the 100 posts actually used the phrase "Jewish Lobby"
-Many of the remaining 91 posts were written by Jews in praise of Barack Obama. My favorite favorite one featured a pro-Obama video from Rabbi Samuel Gordon from Wilmette, Illinois.
