A member of the Democratic Party's executive committee in Tennessee has apologized for saying Barack Obama has connections to terrorists. That's right, Democratic Party. Check out his source:
"My statement that Senator Obama 'may be terrorist-connected' was incorrect and I apologize for making it," former state Rep. Fred Hobbs said in a letter to fellow Democratic Executive Committee members.
Mr. Hobbs, a former Eagleville mayor, said his comments "did reflect questions I had after what I had seen reported on Fox News, but I should have taken some time to check the accuracy of what I saw on television before speaking publicly."
I knew you couldn't trust everything you read in the paper -- or on blogs -- but can you really not trust everything you hear on cable television?
