Hot Air has the video of TIME's Jay Carney blaming conservative bloggers for the Michelle Obama "whitey" rumor.   Of course, it was a liberal blogger who has been a frequent Huffington Post writer, who started the rumor.

By the way, by bringing up this rumor on national TV, isn't Jay advancing the rumor?

UpdateRedState notes that TIME magazine actually reported that the rumor was started by a "pro-Hillary Clinton blogger..."

Update:  AmSpecBlog reminds me that Reason Magazine -- hardly a bastion of liberalism -- was also instrumental in tamping down this rumor.
