So Much For The Media’s Excuse They Couldn’t Just Google Obama’s Bio

The latest excuse from the mainstream media for how they missed Barack Obama’s author bio misstating that he was born in Kenya is that it was hard copy and they couldn’t Google it.

To that I have a one word reply: FAIL.

As late as 2003, in the author bio for “Dreams From My Father,” his literary agent was posting online that he was born in Kenya.

Once again, we believe Obama is constitutionally qualified to be president and was born in Hawaii.  As we previously stated, we also believe he is an opportunistic tool.  We also now can confirm that members of the mainstream media are to varying degrees: a) lazy, b) stupid, c) biased, or d) all of the above.

So, the Washington Post can dig up a 47 year old story about Mitt Romney cutting some hippie kid’s long hair back in the ’60s, but they couldn’t do an online search for basic information on Obama.  Uh-huh.

I’m just waiting for the next shoe to drop where hard proof shows up that Obama signed off on the author bio as it ran.

    Surely an elite Harvard Law Review President with lifetime political aspirations would have reviewed this brochure for accuracy or had it corrected. This is an example like Elizabeth Warren who lied about their resumes back when it was fashionable especially on college campuses to claim minority status.

    Thad,

    Absolutely. I think that there is a real possibility that Obama claimed that he was born in Kenya just to get some special treatment from the Ivy League (and that is more probable than his being born outside the US). One way or the other, it doesn’t look really good….either he misled/defuaded an American institute of higher education or his being president is technically unconstitutional.

    Funny this has come up. My great uncle was an accomplished author, and someone wrote a biography of him as part of a Ph.D. thesis project. My great uncle (a Columbia alum, and certainly no right-winger) supplied incorrect information concerning his father’s birthplace. (My great grandfather was born in Romania, but my great uncle told the biographer that the birthplace was Vienna, Austria.) The biographer had my grandfather and his sister check the manuscript and they supplied the correction. My great uncle got so angry about it that he started an argument with my grandfather and they never spoke again.
