Obama Throws Kenyan ‘Cousin’ Under the Bus

• Views: 2,368

Barack Obama is shunning his cousin Raila Odinga, prime minister of Kenya: ‘No plans’ for Odinga-Obama meeting.

And get a load of how this is portrayed in an article for Kenyan newspaper The Daily Nation, by Kevin J. Kelley (who teaches journalism at Saint Michael’s College in Vermont):

Mr Odinga has said he is a cousin of Mr Obama’s, although the senator’s representatives deny that the two men are related.

The Kenyan-American presidential candidate may wish to avoid meeting with the PM due to concerns that such contact would be used to stoke rumours intended to wound Senator Obama politically.

Right-wing extremists have been circulating baseless claims on the Internet that Senator Obama is closely allied with Prime Minister Odinga, who is described by the Obama-haters as both an Islamist and a socialist.

Bias? What bias? I don’t see any bias, do you?
