Barack Obama Site Puts Michelle Obama at the Scene of the "Crime"

Barack Obama has set up a web site, Fight the Smears, in an attempt to discredit various rumors circulating on the internet about Obama. One of the rumors circulating is that, in a rant, Michelle Obama in the summer of 2004 used the word 'whitey' and blamed the ills of African-Americans on 'whitey'.

In an attempt, at his Fight the Smears web site, to refute the 'whitey' charge, Barack Obama may have inadvertently provided a bit more evidence to prove the case by putting Michelle at the scene of the "crime".

At his, Fight the Smears, web site Obama charges that the following statement is a lie:

The Michelle Obama Rant Tape was filmed between June 26th - July 1st 2004in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church:
specifically the Women’s Event

Indeed, the event was held at the Chicago Sheraton, not at Trinity United Church.

BUT, the site goes on to say:

Michelle Obama was not on a panel... at the Sheraton.

It then links to a schedule of the event that shows Michelle Obama WAS on a panel at the event, or at least a "special guest” which certainly suggests the possibility of a speaking role, especially since two television personalities are MC’s. What are they Master of Ceremonies of ?...
