Obama Death Threats Falsely Reported by CNN's Sanchez, Says Secret Service Director

From Associated Content
By J.C. Grant December 04, 2009 On August 28, 2009, CNN correspondent and left-wing extremist, Rick Sanchez, reported that death threats against President Obama are 400 percent higher than during previous administrations—something Sanchez invidiously attributed to anti-abortion groups. And then, on October 18, 2009, The Boston Globe, a self-described "progressive institution" and subsidiary of The New York Times, also reported that President Obama is a mark for more death threats than his predecessors—a circumstance The Boston Globe imputed to Americans opposed to a large federal government. According to Secret Service Director Mark Sullivan, however, both of these left-wing media reports are patently false. In fact, according to Director Sullivan, death threats against President Obama are no greater than those leveled against Presidents Bush and Clinton. During a CNN Newsroom report on August 28, Rick Sanchez delivered the following melodramatic report: "A CNN source with very close ties to the U.S. Secret Service confirmed to me today that threats on the life of the president of the United States have now risen by as much as 400 percent since his inauguration, 400 percent death threats against Barack Obama—quote-- 'in this environment' go far beyond anything the Secret Service has seen with any other president." (emphasis added) Similarly, The Boston Globe, in its article of October 18, wrote in material part: "The ... threat is ... growing, fueled ... by Obama's election as the nation's first black president .... Obama ... has been the target of more threats since his inauguration than his predecessors." (emphasis supplied) Quoting a study by known left-wing organization, The Southern Poverty Law Center, The Boston Globe continued on: "A key difference this time is that the federal government ... is headed by a black man."
