Drudge Report Once Again Proven To Be 'Lying Bowl Of Lukewarm Shit'

The 'Drudge Report' once again proves to be a reliable tool of the oligarchs and their misinformation campaign. If you want to see GOP talking points in advance just check Drudge each morning for the latest list of lies and fabrications.

The story has a intro above it that indicated. "OBAMA LIT AGENT, 1991: 'Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii'... Used bio until 2007..."

The 'sack of lying shit story' is based on Breitbart News reports on a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency which describes the author as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii."

Then this happened:

Miriam Goderich issued the following statement to Political Wire:
"You're undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me -- an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more."
Full disclosure: I am a client of the same literary agency.
