News agency seeks outlet for Michelle Obama tapes

Posted: October 19, 2008 | 6:31 pm Eastern

The African Press International news agency – which reported that Michelle Obama called to protest its coverage of WND stories about her husband, characterized the source of the material as "racist" and described WND senior reporter Jerome Corsi as "evil" – has announced it is clear of legal hurdles and is seeking an American news source to distribute audio recordings of Michelle Obama's phone call.

An announcement printed on the press agency's website reads, "API is soon to conclude an agreement on which of the media channels in the US is to air the Michelle Obama tapes. This has come about because many news channels have shown great interest in getting the tapes so that they air to the American people before the elections."

API has delayed releasing the tapes before, saying it was offering Michelle Obama an opportunity to "come clean" and it was seeking legal counsel to avoid a lawsuit from the Obama campaign.
