Tuesday's Top News

The University of Illinois releases the Obama-Ayers papers tomorrow. Don’t expect the MSM to mention it–unless it’s good news for Obama.

Meanwhile, Obama has asked the Department of Justice to block ads that link the Illinois Senator to domestic terrorist William Ayers. Pathetic.

Obama’s campaign has written the Department of Justice demanding a criminal investigation of the “American Issues Project,” the vehicle through which Dallas investor Harold Simmons is financing the advertisements. The Obama campaign — and tens of thousands of supporters — also is pressuring television networks and affiliates to reject the ads. The effort has met with some success: CNN and Fox News are not airing the attacks.

But MarketWatch reports that a counter-ad by Obama is misleading and fails to address the issues raised in Simmons’s ad.

The Obama campaign has launched a new ad that fails to dispute a single fact in the American Issues Project’s initial ad questioning Barack Obama’s relationship with admitted domestic terrorist, William Ayers.

We shall see. I’ll report on the Obama-Ayers Papers if the MSM won’t.
