Example Of How News Media Loses Credibility

DUO TAKE OBAMA BIRTH CHALLENGE TO COURT

From NBC’s Pete Williams
“When the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court meet on Dec. 5th, in their regular private conference to decide which cases to hear, two lawsuits that have captivated a segment of the blogosphere will be up for discussion.”

It wouldn’t have even been a issue in the blogosphere if Pete Williams and the other reporters would had vetted Obama to begin with instead of making news about Palin’s kids and her clothes.

“Lawsuits over the inclusion of their names on state general-election ballots popped up around the country and were quickly dispensed with by local courts. But two challengers have pursued their cases to the Supreme Court.”

Lawsuits are still popping up. Four, not two have made it to the supreme court. None of the cases were thrown out due to merit. They were thrown out due to lack of standing.

“The justices are unlikely to take up these cases for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the invitation to overturn the results of an election in which more than 66 million Americans voted for Obama.”

What other hosts of reasons? Name these other “hosts of reasons.” Are you assuming if Obama is found ineligible the supreme court will just ignore the constitution?

“The Obama campaign had hoped to end the controversy last spring by releasing his actual Hawaii birth certificate. But that prompted further questions about its authenticity, which were compounded when state authorities in Hawaii said they could not vouch for it, because they were constrained by the privacy laws.”

Obama DID NOT release his actual birth certificate. That is  lie. He released a questionable COLB.

To make sure the MSNBC blog only received positive comments to Pete Williams “story,” they refused to let dissenting comments to come through.

Why not tell the story over the air? Why only on the web?

Pete Williams story is a clear example of lazy reporting, no checking of facts, censorship, and a clear indication of the reason people are losing trust in them.

    Someone somewhere failed to do their job when he filed to run fo President. The news media is afraid for some reason to speak ill of him. since when do we suppress the truth and ignore the constitution? Ok they have proivacy laws, but if Obama wanted to end this he coul have done it months ago He could go to the land of his birth with reporters, get the birth cetificate and show everyone. Why doesnt he???

    He doesn’t want anyone to see what his birth certificate says. The media doesn’t either.
