Update on the African Press International (Alleged Michelle Obama Tape)

In the interest of fairness, I think it appropriate to update my previous post on this African Press International business and their purported taped telephone conversation with Michelle Obama.

At this point, doubt over the authenticity of this tape increases in my mind. API's daily, tantalizing updates on their delivery of the "tape" to Fox News lacks credibility with each passing day.

As we know, for ths "tape" to have any real purpose, it must be released to the public before the elction. The latest report from API promises that they will be aired within 24 hours by Sean Hannity and Greta van Susteren with only a 15 minute advance warning.

Well, all I can say is the proof is in the pudding.

Interestingly, however, I see no disclaimer coming from Fox News, Hannity or van Susteren. If this was all a scam, wouldn't Fox come out and say the story is false? Maybe they are still trying to satisfy themselves that API and the tape are for real.

We won't have long to wait for the results.

Maybe, the api rep is winging his way across the Atlantic at this very moment.

It's bogus.
