Coming up tonight, Piers Morgan welcomes author and journalist David Maraniss for an honest and revealing discussion on Barack Obama, in particular, various mythologies surrounding America's current commander-in-chief.
Author of the new book, "Barack Obama: The Story," Maraniss addresses discrepancies between his own research, and what the president himself portrays:
"The girlfriend that he writes about in his memoir, in New York City, he sort of defines her through the lens of race, as a White woman, who didn't understand the anger of Black people," says the guest. "The real girlfriend, who is Genevieve Cook, had a completely different perspective on race."
In addition to addressing contracting perspectives created by Obama, Maraniss also comes to the president's defense, disputing claims by his detractors:
"The other mythology of the right-wing birthers is equally preposterous," suggests the Pulitzer Prize winner. "The fact that he was born in Honolulu on August 4th 1961 is indisputable by the facts that any historian would look at."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m. as Maraniss shares insight and information obtained in hundreds of interviews, including some conducted in the Oval Office.
