In his new book about Obama, "The Bridge", David Remnick of The New Yorker includes as a throwaway a line about the relationship between Barack Obama and Bill Ayers:
“Ayers helped bring Obama onto the Annenberg board.”
No kidding. We have long believed what Remnick is now reporting, but the current official Obama cover story as promoted in the Times is that after Bill Ayers worked for a year to create the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, he simply stood back and let others pick a young stranger with no background in education to lead it. Sure.
