Stanley Kurtz is the academically minded senior fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center who has doggedly investigated the Chicago years of Barack Obama. Most recently, Kurtz has been seeking to reconstruct the relationship of BarackObama and Bill Ayers via the papers of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge held by the University of Illinois at Chicago. Kurtz has painstakingly documented the obstacles thrown up to his review of the documents.
Now his efforts have struck a nerve at the Obama campaign, which has viciously lashed out at him as a “slimy character assassin.” Last night Chicago’s own Milt Rosenberg hosted Kurtz for the duration of his WGN 720 show. The Obama campaign declined Rosenberg’s invitation to have a reapresentative appear with Kurtz on the show. Rosenberg has made a podcast of the show available for download here.
JOHN adds: This is another in the series of near-daily “Democrats vs. Free Speech” stories. It is noteworthy that the Obama campaign’s email to the candidate’s acolytes says, “At the very least, they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz’s lies,” but fails to disclose that the radio station invited a representative of the campaign to appear on the show. Barack Obama hates debate, but loves bully-boy tactics.
