In the sting video referred to in an earlier post, NPR management make some absurd claims about Obama’s eligibility.
“We’re not covering the birthers. We are not covering them,” Liley said. “There’s a whole movement within the conservative group about questioning something that Obama has said as fact, ‘I was born in Hawaii, when it was a United States state.’ The group that questions this, some of whom are commentators … I don’t know any who are Democrats, but they are primarily conservative commentators and people who follow them question if Obama is [a natural-born citizen].” Liley also cites a “stunning” study revealing that “51 percent of Americans now believe that Obama was not born in the United States.”
She doesn’t know any who are Democrats? That has to be a lie. What about ‘tingle up my leg’ Obama supporter Chris Matthews on MSNBC? And she admits she knows 51% of Americans are concerned with the issue, but still they refuse to cover it. How is that responsible broadcasting? It isn’t of course, its just another example of the widespread corruption that exists in public life since the left have become politically and socially ascendant.
