Lou Dobbs and Co. Feeding Birther Movement

by Ben Cohen

Media Matters on the Conservative media feeding the lunatic fringe obsessed with Barack Obama’s birth certificate:

It’s easy to dismiss this as meaningless nonsense, but as the economy plunges downward and unemployment rises, we’re going to hear a lot more of this bile in the coming months. All reputable media institutions should dismiss the phenomenon, and refuse to report on it, because frankly, it’s unpatriotic and completely racist.
