Listed below are links to weblogs that reference NYT repeats phony Obama quote:

Barack Obama has agreed to deliver the commencement address at Wesleyan University in place of Sen. [Read More]


Obama said it was ridiculous for Hillary to claim that she hunted ducks and used a six-shooter. Obama wasn't talking about what Hillary did. He was disparaging what she said.

The misquote makes Hillary's claim even more ridiculous, thus making Obama's contradiction of her comment even more cogent. The misquote may be unfair to Hillary (depending on what she actually said), but logically it shouldn't harm Obama

However, logic doesn't seem to play a major role in campaigns.
