‘Obama Nation’ Examined

The New York Times, in its story about Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality, by Jerome R Corsi, which is #1 on the 8/17 Times bestseller list (the one coming in the paper next week, but already available online). Corsi told the Times that the book,

…is being pushed along by a large volume of bulk sales, intense voter interest in Mr. Obama and a broad marketing campaign that has already included 100 author interviews with talk radio hosts across the country, like Sean Hannity and G. Gordon Liddy

It is published by the Simon & Schuster imprint, Threshold Editions, headed by Mary Matalin, who also plans to publish Karl Rove’s memoirs.

The Times relates Obama Nation to the author’s previous title,

In its timing, authorship and style of reporting, the book is strikingly reminiscent of the one Mr. Corsi wrote with John O’Neill about Mr. Kerry, Unfit for Command, which included various accusations that were ultimately undermined by news reports pointing out the contradictions

The Times then examines some of the book’s “unsubstantiated, misleading or inaccurate” accusations.
