Shocker: Author Who Debunked Obama’s Health Insurance Story Doesn’t Want to Talk About It

Last week I wrote about the apparent debunking of a campaign story Barack Obama used often in 2008, and subsequently leading up to the passage of Obamacare — the one about his mother and her horrible struggles to keep her health insurance company from dropping her while she was ill with cancer.

The author hasn’t recanted the story, but she’s none too eager to discuss it, either.

From Byron York:

Many authors of newly-published books are eager to discuss their work, especially if the book has made news. But Janny Scott, author of A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mother, doesn’t want to talk about what has become the most newsworthy part of her generally well-received new biography.

Rest of the story here.

If the author would aggressively publicize this story she’d no doubt sell more books. What could have happened to make her not want to talk about it?
