Wingnuts echo Trib scribe's error

Chicago Tribune automotive columnist Jim Mateja recently accused Sen. Barack Obama, in somewhat snarky terms, of getting his facts wrong about the fuel economy of Japanese cars.

It turns out that Obama was right and Mateja was wrong. But the truth of the matter didn't gain prominent notice until after a whole raft of right-wing bloggers, ever eager to diss Obama, had repeated Mateja's false charge.

Media Matters has the story here.
