Blogger Who Posted Marcus Bachmann’s ‘Barbarians’ Comment Denies Doctoring File

First, a 2010 radio interview surfaced in which Marcus Bachmann says homosexuals are “barbarians” who “need to be educated.” Then, Bachmann denied the comments from the radio show. He said the tape had been doctored and that he was referring to children in the interview, adding, “That’s not the way I would talk.” But the blogger who posted the original interview online denies changing the audio file. Ken Avidor, who uploaded the interview in May 2010 on, told New York Magazine that he only edited the file for length.
