Perhaps you haven’t heard since “nobody” finds it newsworthy, but Tuesday night The Daily Caller, Fox News and the Drudge Report broke a story about candidate Obama’s racially divisive, lie-peppered speech in front of a predominantly black Virginia audience.
“Old news.” Nothing to see here. Move along. That’s why, as Bloomberg TV editor Jake Beckman points out, “nobody” is talking about it today.

Heh. Don’t count on that.
