Jumping the gun: Reagan’s home not being demolished for Obama parking lot

Updated

Sorry right-wingers, the rumors are not true. Ronald Reagan’s childhood home isn’t being torn down to make room for a parking lot for President Obama’s library.

On Wednesday, the internet was buzzing about the University of Chicago, where officials supposedly decided to demolish the apartment in the neighborhood of Hyde Park where the former president spent part of his childhood.

A number of publications ran with the story, including London’s Daily Mail and the Washington Times.

White House Press Secretary squelched the rumors, tweeting, “To those chasing the Mail Online ‘scoop’ about alleged Obama library parking lot–stand down. The report is false. Shocking, I know.”

The University of Chicago also shot down the story. It also hasn’t even been confirmed that the presidential library will be at the University of Chicago, as the University of Hawaii remains a contender.

Still, Fox News asked viewers to weigh in this morning.

Watch the Sideshow video above to see the conservative network’s reaction.
