Earlier this evening, I spoke with someone on the phone about Obama’s birth certificate.
One of the things mentioned in the conversation was my position on the media coverage of this issue — which has been virtually nonexistent.
Since when have we had an issue believed by this many Americans — especially about a major political figure — that wasn’t well-covered by the media?
Allegations are made about Herman Cain and women. Bam. It’s all over the news, night and day.
Sarah Palin wears (gasp) some clothes paid for by the Republican party. Bam. Wow. Now that’s a major national issue.
On the other hand… millions of Americans are fully convinced that the President of the United States has a forged birth certificate and has perpetrated a major fraud. Not only that, but there are an awful lot of analyses out there showing some really suspicious-looking stuff in regard to the birth certificate.
The allegations are deemed credible enough that the Sheriff of a major American county launches an investigation to try and find out the truth of the matter.
And we hear absolutely nothing from the media… only the sound of crickets chirping.
This is a topic that doesn’t show any immediate signs of going away, and it’s one that the major media ought to cover, and try to bring to rest.
So why don’t they? A lot of people believe it’s because of their bias towards Obama. In essence, they’re “covering” for him. And I must confess, that’s about the only reason I can think of.
The media ought to cover this, and really investigate it — if only to establish clarity in the public mind of what’s correct, and what’s hogwash. Some may claim that clarity already exists. From the folks I’ve talked to, I don’t think it does.
