More on the Post’s Obama Story

You can’t help but read this Politico story — “Wash. Post Obama story under fire” — and think that former Posties Jim VandeHei and John Harris were tickled pink to run it.

Discussing last week’s controversial Obama article in the Post, Michael Calderone talks to the Post’s Bill Hamilton, who gives a politician-like “I apologize to anyone who was offended by this” response:

    Assistant Managing Editor Bill Hamilton, who oversees political coverage and edited the article, said that he was “a little puzzled” that readers didn’t see that the paper’s intention was to call into question rumors that Obama is secretly a Muslim (rather than a Christian), and was educated in an Indonesian madrassa.

    “I’m sorry it was misunderstood,” Hamilton said. “It obviously makes me think about how I edited it.”
