Update (11/03/2008): The airing of the tape has been suspended. API pulled the deal because Fox News was reluctant to air the tape. You can read the original story about Michelle Obama's phone call by clicking here.
African Press International (API), who has been featured on this blog before, got a call from an angry Michelle Obama. They have a tape of it, and it sounds like possibly more!
Many have been wondering about what will happen to the Michelle Obama tape, now that API has received death threats for planning to have the tape aired. Death threats mounted after API refused an offer of 3 million US dollars by Senator Obama's Campaign manager.
There has been speculations that Fox News may deny that there is an agreement already reached that gives the them permission to air the tape. The public who are aware of the existence of a tape should be aware that some elements in our society would not like the message in the tape to come out.
There's more ... The intended release of Michelle Obama tapes stirs trouble in many circles:
The Obama camp is not saying anything publicly now, but have chosen to work behind the scenes in their efforts to influence the release of Michelle Obama tape. The impact the tape is expected to have on National Security when finally released will be huge.
Peaceful approach to have the tapes not to be released has now turned into direct threats directed against API. The threats being unleashed against API comes after API Chief Editor's unwillingness to accept the offer of a bribe by Obama Camp's Campaign Manager was turned down.
I guess I'll now go turn on Fox.
