Haberman’s latest in the @nytimes quotes the First Lady: “never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin”

*fails to mention her birtherism.

*And calls wearing a jacket that said “I Really Don’t Care. Do U” a “famous fashion faux pas”.
It was wriiten along with Annie Karni and Katie Rogers, and could easily have been written by the First Lady’s press person. I realize that there’s a bunch of reporters who don’t give a crap about the racism that is birtherism—or who think a hateful slogan is a ‘faux pas’.
I fully understand that they need access access access and they are willing to pull some punches to get it. That’s how today’s DC press corps works. But the First Lady went on National TV as a birther, so maybe her comments about race might be...not heartfelt?
I wish these journalists weren’t so bad. But they are.
