AP Scrubs 'Muslim' from Obama's Self-Referential Joke
by Robert Spencer
Warner Todd Huston reported at Breitbart Monday that "in some of its reports on Saturday night's White House Correspondents Dinner (WHCD), the Associated Press failed to include one of President Obama's own gags."
Obama said: "These days I look in the mirror and have to admit, I'm not the strapping young Muslim Socialist that I used to be." But, noted Huston, "in one version of the night's story (as seen at Huffington Post, Time Magazine, Breitbart Wires, the Ottawa Citizen, and The Columbian to name a few), the AP's Bradley Klapper forgot one part of the President's joke," reporting his words as "I'm not the strapping young Socialist that I used to be,"
Why? Did they think it had too much of a ring of truth?
