Cooper Lashes Out At Fox News Over Obama: ‘They Didn’t Check The Facts — We Did’

cooperbot.jpgFresh off his signing his multi-million, multi-year contract with CNN, Anderson Cooper took a thinly-veiled shot at Fox News over their reporting of the Barack Obama-madrassa Insight magazine story:

Other news organizations ran with “Insight”‘s story. They didn’t check the facts. We did.

We sent CNN’s John Vause all the way to Indonesia to the school for a reality check.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

COOPER: Well, that’s the difference between talking about news and reporting it. You send a reporter, checks the facts and you decide at home.
