As Twitchy reported earlier, Breitbart.com uncovered a bombshell biography booklet of President Obama that listed him as being born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Breitbart is not a “birther” site and pointing out that President Obama was never vetted, seems to invent “composites” of women and other things in his past should be done. It’s called journalism.
Some advise for you, President Obama: A little less inserting self in others’ biographies and a little more concentrating on your own. And we don’t mean the composite one.
The bombshell report wasn’t questioning Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate, it was questioning Obama himself: Why all the made up stuff always? It was also questioning the media. The mainstream media sure as heck didn’t vet Obama at all and they continue to refuse to do so.
They are too busy trying to bash Romney for “whatever it was I said.”
That’s more important than a completely crafted background and zero transparency, right?
The Left and members of the press immediately jumped all over Breitbart.com and the story, rather than being, you know, reporters and finding out why Obama pulled an Elizabeth Warren.
Including “research fellow” at Media Matters. Evidently, research – and reading – are hard.
It proves that most of the media are hacks, Oliver. Also, your Palin crush is super embarrassing. You just can’t stop thinking about her, can you?
But, the story from the media will, of course, be “ZOMG look at those cuckoo pants birthers!!!111”
It’s old and stuff! Silly birthers! If it is so old, then why didn’t the media cover it before?
Breitbart.com surprises with an utterly reasonable editors note, before reporting on an old claim that Obama was born in Kenya:
Okay, we know journalism is hard for y’all, but reading is fundamental. They are not claiming he was born in Kenya. They are reporting on the fact that Barack Obama pulled a Warren and said he was born in Kenya.
The media should be questioning why President Obama needs to continuously hide behind pasts that have been constructed for him.
Dubya! RT @RBPundit: Someone told Obama's literary agent that Obama was born in Kenya when he was born in Hawaii. Who told the agent that?

Remember when we had to keep investigating where Presidents 1 – 43 were actually born because they themselves kept confusing us about it?

Hey, remember when the press did that? No more. But luckily for us all, citizens are the new journalists.
