Rebutting Corsi

Obama Nation, at #1 on the 8/17 New York Times bestseller list (it’s on the list with a dagger, which  “indicates that some bookstores report receiving bulk orders.” In a NYT story on Tuesday, these were characterized as “a large volume of bulk sales”), has come under scrutiny from various sources.

The Obama campaign itself has just issued a rebuttal as a 40-page PDF, called “Unfit for Publication,” (download it here). The third page of the pamphlet links to commentary on the book in the NY Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Time magazine, the New Republic and Politico.com.

More rebuttals appeared last night and today: 

Washington Post editorial, “Par for Mr. Corsi; An expert at misrepresentation takes on Barack Obama” says the book “is rife with inaccuracies and innuendo.”

Washington Post, “Obama Faces the Smear Machine,” Eugene Robinson

Rachel Maddow on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” last night said the book “stretches the credulity of its being classified as ‘nonfiction'”

In addition, John Kerry has set up a Web site, Truth Fights Back
