Many people are wondering why main stream media and Fox are not covering the Obama birth certificate controversy. Bill O’Reilly attempts to explain that as he answers an email from a viewer in a segment for premium members.
If you listen to O’Reilly and did not view the live stream of the Arpaio press conference, his explanation would sound plausible but if you did view the press conference you would know that:
1. The Cold Case posse did produce “hard evidence”
2. They did explain why the Hawaiian birth announcement means nothing
So, it would appear that Bill O’Reilly who normally would look into a controversy does not want to know or deal with the facts in this case and this appears to be the way 99% of the media is dealing with the Obama birth certificate issue. This strikes me as extremely odd when you consider that the Left and their Mainstream Media acolytes were quick to point out “where there is smoke there is fire” when reporting on allegations of Herman Cain’s various alleged affairs and immediately jump on anything that would allow them to belittle or vilify those who question or attack Obama. Instead of jumping all over this to prove that Arpaio is just another “Birther” they are completely ignoring the story while Eric Holder’s Department of Justice works their magic trying to get rid of Arpaio on trumped up profiling charges. Is it possible that the reason for this uncharacteristic silence is that Arpaio is credible and they cannot directly confront and refute the facts he has presented?
I suppose a person could take the attitude that the press is just waiting to see what happens next before they jump in but they certainly didn’t wait long to come to the conclusion that the Neighborhood Watch captain who shot Trayvon Martin should be in jail awaiting trial. Bill O’Reilly jumped in on that story acting as the voice of reason but when it comes to the Obama fraud and forgery charges he is uncharacteristically quiet. On Air he does not even say that this fuss is ridiculous because I looked into this and it is obvious to me that this is just another case of Birthers pushing a dead issue. To hear the annoyed O’Reilly provide his condescending answer to a viewer’s email you have to be a premium member of his web site. Is there the slightest chance that the Federal Government has suppressed the story by using FCC threats against anyone who will not tow the line? http://www.coachisright.com/media-threatened-with-federal-investiga...
The press certainly didn’t hold off awaiting the facts as each new unsubstantiated accuser came forward trying to discredit Herman Cain, the only black man running against Obama, but when a retired mail carrier came forward with the story of his conversations with Bill Ayers’ mother and her proud declaration that she and her husband were helping a foreign student with his college, the press is not interested. http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/postman-ayers-family-put-foreigner-obama... When asked why he waited so long to bring this up the mailman simply said that when he told the story nobody seemed to care so he stopped talking about it. Could it be that the Obama crowd hopes that they can ignore the 800 pound gorilla in the room until it goes away? As for me, I agree with David Axelrod when he said “where there is smoke there is fire” and with Barack Obama who said; “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are people with something to hide” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGfEzLlcO_s&feature=player_detai... I do understand why Obama and his alleged coconspirators would want to hide the truth but I am having a hard time figuring out why so many think allegations of conspiracy to commit election fraud and forgery do not warrant an investigation.
