Via Matt Lewis, I see that Time’s Jay Carney blamed conservative bloggers for starting the Michelle Obama “whitey” tape rumor even though it originated with liberal blogger and Hillary Clinton backer Larry Johnson, and even though National Review’s Jim Geraghty worked tirelessly to debunk the rumor.
