CNN Tells Lou Dobbs to Knock It Off
TVNewser has the email network president Jon Klein sent to producers:
I asked the political researchers to dig into the question “why couldn’t Obama produce the ORIGINAL birth certificate?”
This is what they forwarded. It seems to definitively answer the question. Since the show’s mission is for Lou to be the explainer and enlightener, he should be sure to cite this during your segment tonite. And then it seems this story is dead – because anyone who still is not convinced doesn’t really have a legitimate beef.
Like the McCain campaign, most major political media looked into this, and other rumors (like the Michelle Obama “whitey” tape) when the stories broke.
