Author Eric Burns talks about Jerome Corsi’s book, “The Obama Nation,” and whether its unfair attacks on Barack Obama will do the kind of damage Corsi’s previous attack-book did to John Kerry’s campaign. Burns and Countdown guest host Rachel Maddow explore the dishonest tactics employed to make the book appear more popular than it is.
