How desperate is the Republican attack machine?

Yesterday, Drudge, Hannity, Daily Caller and other foot soldiers in the Republican echo chamber breathlessly trumpeted release of a video of a speech Barack Obama gave five years ago.

Startling revelation: Obama said nice things about Jeremiah Wright, then his pastor.

Problems: The speech was open to the press. Copies of the speech were distributed. The speech was covered by press. Fox News reported on it. MSNBC reported on it. Jeremiah Wright, you’ve heard about.

This is what passes as an “exclusive” in Drudge and Hannity Land, the faith-based world where they are never dictated by fact-checkers.
