Breitbart “News” Beclowns Themselves Yet Again
Then, six hours after the screaming anti-Obama headline comes the sheepish update:
UPDATE: A text box now appears on the Ken Burns website learntheaddress.org which states: “Did you know there are five versions of the Gettysburg Address? We asked President Obama to read the first, the Nicolay Version.” A cached version of the same webpage from several days ago shows no such reference.
Right, because O’Connor and the rest of the right wing crazysphere made such a stink about this moronic fake outrage that Ken Burns needed to post a clarification to stop the idiocy from spreading any further. Winning!
And speaking of clarifications, Larry — how about an update to your totally wrong headline?
