Obama Nation author Jerome Corsi again suggested that Sen. Barack Obama might create a new department of the government to censor books critical of him if elected president, writing, "By placing 'Unfit for Publication' as the title of the mock-book, does the Obama rebuttal mean to suggest an Obama administration might have a censorship department in which a book critical of a President Obama might be banned from publication?"

Author Jerome Corsi, in a September 7 "WorldNetDaily Exclusive" article responding to the Obama campaign's rebuttal of his falsehood-laden book The Obama Nation, suggested that Obama might create a new department of the government to censor books critical of him if elected president. Corsi wrote, "By placing 'Unfit for Publication' as the title of the mock-book, does the Obama rebuttal mean to suggest an Obama administration might have a censorship department in which a book critical of a President Obama might be banned from publication?"

Corsi previously said on the August 16 edition on C-SPAN's Washington Journal that if Obama were elected president and someone were to write a book critical of him or to publish "a cartoon like The New Yorker," "Obama might just have to create a department of hate crimes and put them in jail." As Media Matters for America has noted, in appearances on C-SPAN and other media outlets, Corsi has promoted the falsehoods in his book even though they have been widely discredited.

From Corsi's September 7 WorldNetDaily article:

"Unfit for Publication" -- The Cover

The cover of the 41-page Obama rebuttal to "The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality" is entitled "Unfit for Publication." The cover appears to be an imitation of the cover for "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out against John Kerry," which I co-authored in 2004. A seal on the cover proclaims, "Brought to You by: Bush/Cheney Attack Machine."

By placing "Unfit for Publication" as the title of the mock-book, does the Obama rebuttal mean to suggest an Obama administration might have a censorship department in which a book critical of a President Obama might be banned from publication?
