The Drudge headline:
REV. JESSE JACKSON APOLOGIZES TO SEN. BARACK OBAMA FOR ‘CRUDE AND HURTFUL COMMENTS’ CAUGHT BY OPEN MIC… CNN DESCRIBES AS ‘UGLY WORDS,’ ‘VERY, VERY DISPARAGING’; JACKSON IN ‘DEEP DISTRESS’… FOX NEWS IN POSSESSION OF TAPE AND WILL PLAY IN ENTIRETY TONIGHT ON ‘O’REILLY’, ‘HANNITY AND COLMES’; OBAMA: NO COMMENT… DEVELOPING…
I guess Senator McCain picked a good news cycle in which to joke about attacking Iranian civilians with lung cancer.
UPDATE: Drudge is awful. So here’s the word from the less awful CNN:
(CNN) — The Rev. Jesse Jackson issued an apology to Barack Obama Wednesday for criticizing the Illinois senator’s recent comments directed toward some members of the black community.
According to Jackson, a Fox News microphone picked up comments he meant to deliver privately that seemed to disparage the presumptive Democratic nominee for appearing to lecture the black community on morality.
