Obama Tries To Bribe News Outlet With Michelle “White Racist” Tape

OK, this has got to be the most bizarre news I have seen in my lifetime of watching politics:

Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API  was contacted by Obama’s Campaign Manager.

Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.

Obama’s campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.

Wow.  If true then there must be something behind the audio tape, which could come out very soon.

    Color me exceptionally skeptical (Wasn’t a similar story from the same source debunked a couple of weeks ago? My memory’s vague.), but very intrigued.

  2. OLDPUPPYMAX says:

    Oh please. This ranks up there with the “Whitey” tape. I’ll bet this all comes as news to FOX.

  3. CatoRenasci says:

    I remain extremely skeptical as well. I’m from Missouri on this one – you’ll have to “show me” the tape.

    Folks,

    I am skeptical too, which is why I don’t post every minute update. Seriously, I doubt it would change things much. I think Palin and Joe The Plumber are more factors than this trivia.

  5. Wayne at Jeremiah Films says:

    I’ve top posted this here with a hat tip to Strata.

    I would tend to think this is trivial as well but there has been some many items that the press has not been interested in informing the public about – instead they report on what Palin would wear – have sent an army to Alaska to investigate the firing of an officer that should of been fired and it would be a bigger story if he was not fired. Yet nothing on Obama Birth Certificate, His connections to Ordinga …

    Bizarre.

    My snarky response: What else are they going to do with the hundreds of millions of illegal contributions they have lying around? They’ve already reached saturation on TV ads…

    My real response: Very, very, very skeptical.

    I’m much more interested in the tape the LA Times is sitting on.

    This looks like a scam.

    Given their supposed concerns about having the broadcast of the tape interfered with: why did API make any announcement at all about the deal with Fox? They could have said nothing, then let the tape broadcast happen tonight or tomorrow, and mission accomplished!

    Instead, they make the convoluted announcement about the hush hush 15 minutes only lead time before any broadcast. The convoluted announcement allegedly results in a $3M bribe attempt which allows API to milk this story more. Now API announces a supposed pending criminal charge, and API’s supposed lawyer supposedly flying to Oslo. I’m betting the supposed criminal charge and legal maneuvering mysteriously delay the airing of the “Whitey tape”.

    This could be true, yet it has the classic earmarks of a scam. I give it only a vey tiny chance of being true.

    I certainly hope Fox has a copy of the tape. Surely they do if they plan to air it within hours. Where there is smoke there is usually fire. So why would Hussien’s campaign file a criminal suit if there is no tape? Michelle appears to be one of those mal contented souls who are so angry she snarls when she talks. Check it out. Her mouth has taken on a perpetual snarl appearance.

    From Macsmind Blog:

    I’ve contacted Fox News and asked them if they in fact had been contacted, they will not comment.

    Fox News Denies Involvement with Supposed Michelle Obama Audio Tape

    Exclusive: Fox News denies any involvement in the purchase of an audio tape apparently featuring an unflattering portrayal of Michelle Obama. In a widely-circulated Web post, an organization called African Press International claims to be in negotiations with the network to air the tape.

    An FNC spokesman tells TVNewser: “API’s dubious claim that FOX News has purchased a supposed audio tape to be aired prior to Election Day is absolutely false.”
