News & Reviews

Word about the release of “The Manchurian President” leaked out in January 2010 and there was a tiny bit of anticipated negative reaction — with much more to follow (from Media Matters for America, that is). After all, we are talking about POTUS Obama here.

The following list of links is an attempt to keep pace with coverage in the Lamestream Media following the book’s official release by WND Books on May 3, 2010.
