Obama takes on Fox News

Read this article which includes a memo that the senator’s office has emailed out, targeting Fox News for claiming that he attended a radical Islamic “madrassa” school as a child (CNN has debunked the false report).

The memo singles out specific people from Fox News for providing false information about Senator Obama, who is currently considering running in the 2008 presidential election. A little bit from the memo:

If Doocy or the staff at Fox and Friends had taken [time] to check their facts, or simply made a call to his office, they would have learned that Senator Obama was not educated in a Madrassa, was not raised as a Muslim, and was not raised by his father – an atheist Obama met once in his life before he died.

Later in the day, Fox News host John Gibson again discussed the Insight Magazine story without any attempt to independently confirm the charges.
