Continuing an apparent blackout of any real discussion of the claims that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a “forgery,” three major web sites looked to for news by those questioning Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President all failed (refused???) to cover the fact that a debate was even taking place.
WorldNetDaily obviously knew that the debate was taking place — their senior reporter Dr. Jerome Corsi was one of the participants!
Yet as mentioned by me during the course of the debate, they have studiously acted for the past 5 months as if neither I nor my 3-month investigation exist.
BirtherReport.com and The Post & Email (thepostemail.com), arguably the two other major outlets for “birther news,” were both informed ahead of time that the debate was going to take place. Both failed to announce it — even after I sent a second message to BirtherReport.com and emailed the same second message to Post & Email editor Sharon Rondeau.
[Important Update, January 22: BirtherReport.com has posted an article on the fact that the debate took place, and has allowed me to respond to criticisms in their comments. Thanks, BirtherReport.com!]
On the other side of the aisle, ObamaConspiracy.org ran an article announcing that the debate was going to happen. There was a discussion in a thread at the Fogbow (thefogbow.com). And RC of Reality Check Radio invited me on for a half-hour wrap-up radio show that turned into an hour. (Thanks, RC!)
I find it ironic that some of these web sites that advertise that they’re all about “the truth” do not appear to be at all eager to cover both sides of an issue.
As a final note, I would like to warmly thank Mark Gillar for hosting the debate. I personally find that in order to arrive at the truth, it is highly appropriate to let both sides of an issue be heard. Mr. Gillar has been willing to do that. Thanks again!
