The Post‘s Page Six runs a rare correction today, Gawker points out, saying the story it ran about Michelle Obama feasting on lobster and caviar at the Waldorf was bullshit. Apparently the future first lady wasn’t even staying at the Waldorf.
Corrections have yet to appear at USS Neverdock, Atlas Shrugs, Clayton Cramer, American Power, Sweetness & Light, Flopping Aces, and a million other rightwing citizen journalist outlets where the story was disseminated. But don’t worry, it’ll all be forgotten as soon as they get those new Michelle Obama tapes!
