I pay close attention to opportunities of when I can share with non-conspiratorial types that our media LIES TO US!! Here's one that I hope you will
(The subject is Obama's birth but THIS IS NOT a debate about that - please consider the point of the thread before jumping on which side you favor -
the thread is about media bias and lies.)
From CNN: Before birther row, Lt. Col. Lakin racked up medals as flight surgeon.
Lakin is among 27 percent of Americans who doubt or deny that Obama is American-born, according to a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll. They
compose the birther movement, which demands that Obama present a birth certificate signed by the doctor who delivered him in 1961.
Obama has made public an unsigned "certification of live birth," which birthers claim is not the same as a birth certificate. However, two Honolulu,
Hawaii, newspapers have presented birth announcements for Obama, and the state's Republican governor has confirmed that the president was born in the
There are two main issues that CNN is purposefully using to mislead the reader.
The "Republican" governor, making you feel that because he is in the opposing party he must really be in favor of the truth here and not jumping on
the party bandwagon. But in reality the governor of Hawai'i has no say in this. The group who decides is the the Chief Elections Clerk, and he says
Obama never provided the appropriate documents.
The other main issue, and OUTRIGHT misrepresentation, is CNNs use of "two Honolulu, Hawaii, newspapers have presented birth announcements for Obama"
as a positive indicator that he was actually born there; however the two newspapers list DIFFERENT HOSPITALS as his birth place!! This is fraud if you
ask me... and it certainly is not justice.
Remember, this thread is about the media - please think about that before jumping like a ravenous puma over whether you are a birther or not.
(MODERATORS: This DOES NOT belong in Political Conspiracies - it is about the mainstream media bias and misrepresentation of facts; please think twice
if you feel it should be moved there.)
