Internet editor and critic Andy Martin will hold a New York news conference Wednesday, February 21st to threaten Random House and Crown Books with a consumer fraud lawsuit if they continue to sell Barack (Barry) Obama’s book “Dreams From My Father” in their biography/autobiography lists.

“Mr. Obama has conned a lot of people,” Martin will state, “But he never fooled me. Not in 2004, and not in 2007. It is now clear that ‘Dreams From My Father’ is itself a dream, Barack Obama’s daydream of how he would have liked his life to unfold, not how it actually unfolded. It is simply fraudulent to represent that his book is ‘biography’ or ‘autobiography’ as Random House is doing, when the book contains fictionalized and composite characters and even the author can’t remember the truth. I have no objection to Random House selling Barry’s book properly labeled as ‘fiction,’ but I do object to any sale as ‘fact.’

“Unlike Mr. Obama, a lawyer who could probably not find his way to the courthouse, I do know how to sue, and I will take action if Random House’s fraudulent corporate behavior continues.”
