On the March 6th episode of Real Time, I quoted Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as saying, “Under Obama, the word is going to come down that there won’t be any prosecutions of black criminals.”
Kris Kobach did not say this. A caller into his radio show did. Kobach’s response was lame – “Well, it’s already happening, more or less, in the case of civil rights laws. So I guess it’s not a huge jump. I think it’s unlikely but, you know, I’ve learned to say with this president never say never” – but he’s not responsible for the original quote, which is worse.
There’s enough misinformation on TV – it sickens me to ever be its source. I sincerely apologize to Kobach and my viewers for getting it wrong.
