PBS cheats for Obama

There is a reason that most Americans don’t trust PBS and are encouraging any taxpayer funding to be stopped.

There is a reason that President Obama wants to continue funding this liberal media.

That reason was obvious when Obama misrepresented Lincoln’s early party affiliation. Here is what the American Thinker wrote:

At one point Mr. Obama made a major gaffe; he identified Abraham Lincoln as the founder of the Republican Party.

Lincoln did not join the Republicans until 1856, over two years after the party was founded. The first Republican convention was held in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854.

Such a gaffe would have brought huge amounts of ridicule and derision on George W. Bush, but in the case of Obama the media yawned.

Actually, they did more than yawn; government-funded PBS has altered the transcript of the President’s speech, removing the offending comment.
