I was just down at Sam’s Club where they had a couple of books; Obama Nation and The Case Against Barak Obama–attack books. The title leaves no doubt about what the book’s trying to do. What use is a book like that? One knows from the outset that the book is biased and tells only one side of the story.
If one wants to be informed and to make up ones mind, then one needs to hear both sides of the story. I suppose someone could read TWO books, one for and one against. But even here each of those books will likely distort the facts in favor of the one side. So the reader doesn’t get both sides of the truth but two distorted views.
I had hoped that Jerome Corsi would fade into the woodwork after his shamefully deceptive smear book about John Kerry last go-round. He’s back. I give the Obama camp full marks for the title of their rebuttal to his book, which they call “Unfit for Publication”.
