People may recall the big buzz about some supposed audio tapes with Michelle Obama where she loses her composure and lashes out at ‘white racists’ opposing The One. Apparently, if the source of those tapes is to be believed, they will be handed over to Fox News sometime soon.
API has an ongoing discussion with FOX NEWS on the best way forward in the process of releasing Michelle Obama tapes to the American people.
API hopes the negotiation will be completed as soon as possible so that the tapes can be made available to FOX NEWS in the next few days and specifically before the voting day – the 4th of November.
The important thing we want the readers to know is how the tapes will be handled once it finally leaves APIâ€™s custody. API has confidence in FOX NEWS and will allow them to decide whether the tapes will be aired in full, edited or unedited. Once the tapes are released to FOX NEWS as per agreement that will be arrived at between the parties, API believes that FOX NEWSÂ is competent enough to decide on how to proceed in handlingÂ the tapesÂ because – better than us in API – they know what is best for the American listeners.
Still not sure what to make of this one. I don’t understand why API did not just release them – except they must have feared a major legal response. Personally I don’t think these will change the motion of the election very much at all.
