BuzzFeed: White House's list of errors about 'The Obamas' is mostly incorrect

BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed checks out the White House's list of alleged errors in Jodi Kantor's new book, "The Obamas," and concludes: "Kantor, who we're told hired a fact-checker to protect her book from attacks like this, has placed two events in the wrong month of the summer of 2010, and she was off about the design of Michelle Obama's dress. The other six attacks range from debatable to just wrong. … If the aim was to cast doubt on the book's reporting, this document has the opposite effect." || Related: Kantor says she didn't mind not having access to Obamas for book (Poynter); Erik Wemple doesn't buy it (The Washington Post)
