Fox News Gets Punk’d by Obama Birther

Remember that WorldNetDaily story about how President Obama’s Wikipedia page had been scrubbed of “any mention of the well-publicized concerns [i.e. conspiracy theories] surrounding Obama’s eligibility to serve as commander-in-chief”? Kevin Poulsen at Wired reports that the story was written by one of the very Birthers trying to wedge that junk into the Obama page.

[Reporter Aaron] Klein found it particularly alarming that a Wikipedia user called “Jerusalem21″ was recently hit with a three-day wiki-suspension after twice posting the neutral and encyclopedic fact that there are “some doubts about whether Obama was born in the U.S.” … curiously, it turns out that Jerusalem21, whoever he or she might be, has only worked on one other Wikipedia entry since the account was created, notes ConWebWatch. That’s Aaron Klein’s entry, which Jerusalem21 created in 2006, and has edited 37 times.

Klein is the “Jerusalem Bureau Chief” of the conspiracy site. The punchline, as Poulsen notes, is that Joshua Rhett Miller of Fox News wrote a long story about Obama’s supposed Wikipedia-scrubbing for the “science & technology” section of the Fox News Website.

One other news organization led by the nose by an Obama conspiracy theorist: the Daily Telegraph, which brought you the report that the president was “overwhelmed” and over his head.
