And why are so many news organizations, all but one, in fact, determined to sweep this issue under the rug, to ridicule Americans who want proof even when they represent majority opinion? Why are they twisting and manipulating and stretching the truth to cover for the president? Is that the proper role of a free press in a free society?
I'll tell you why I think the media establishment is doing this now: Because they bought the lie hook, line and sinker and have to stand by it now or go down with the good ship Obama.By Joseph Farah

Every poll shows the same thing.
Americans don't believe Barack Obama.
They don't believe him on health care.
They don't believe him on the economy.
And they don't believe him on his own birth story.
One year ago, I was shocked that 50 percent of Americans even knew there was a controversy about Obama's nativity story. Since then, despite assurances from CNN, the New York Times, CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox and every other news organization in America that this is just fringe conspiracy rumor-mongering, a significant majority has come to disbelieve Obama. The shocking news from CNN yesterday is that 58 percent of Americans are not buying what they're buying.
Another way to say this, in all due modesty, is that WND – the only news organization in America to pursue this story – has won over public opinion, has planted enough seeds of doubt to overcome the combined efforts of the entire media and political establishment.
Look at the latest from CNN: "It's surely not what the leader of the free world wants for his birthday. But, for a stubborn group of Americans, conspiracy theories about President Obama's birthplace are the gifts that keep on giving."
Let's see. That would make for about 174 million American conspiracy theorists, if my math is correct.
No, it's not what Obama wanted to hear on his birthday. It's surely not what CNN wanted to report either, which is why the network labels the rightful curiosity and skepticism and discernment of Americans as "conspiracy theories."
In fact, CNN flat-out lies when it states that Obama's birth certificate has been authenticated by Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle. The governor is on record as saying she never saw the document. She is also curiously on record as saying her office issued a news release claiming Obama was born in Kapi'olani Hospital – even though that is provably untrue. In fact, no Hawaii official has ever authenticated even the copies of certifications of live birth the Obama campaign released to hand-picked investigators. If Hawaii has affirmed Kapi'olani as the birth hospital, someone should let Kapi'olani know – because that medical center still refuses to confirm that most basic detail of Obama's life. In other words, CNN is making up the facts as it goes along.
When news organizations are forced to use as their best evidence of a presidential birth in the U.S. images of old newspaper announcements, you know they have nothing. Newspaper announcements are no more persuasive official documents or eyewitness evidence than are those digital certifications of live birth.
