What liberal media?

In one of the top stories on Yahoo News right now, AP reporter Nedra Pickler's take on the Obama campaign's rebuttal of Jerome Corsi's new book The Obama Nation, I found the following interesting passage:

Jerome Corsi's anti-Obama book, "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality," claims the Illinois senator is a dangerous, radical candidate for president. The book is a compilation of all the innuendo and false rumors against Obama — that he was raised a Muslim, attended a radical, black church and secretly has a "black rage" hidden beneath the surface. [my emphasis]
I'm sorry, but how is that (the second paragraph of the story, by the way) appropriate for a "straight" news story? Maybe it was a rush job, and someone left out the part where that's the Obama campaign's assertion, but otherwise, that sure as hell looks like the reporter's opinion to me.

I'll keep my eyes peeled to see if they make any changes.
