Washington Post Defends Birther Coverage
You really cannot make this crap up -- yesterday during an online chat, Washington Post reporter Ben Pershing was asked why the media only gives a platform to some of the idiotic conspiracy theorists:
Perhaps because there is an actual videotape of the planes hitting the World Trade Center that billions of people around the world have seen, while there is no videotape of Obama being born in Hawaii or Vince Foster committing suicide.
Well, he has a point. Just as is the case with 99.9999% of the population, there is no video, and without that, a birth certificate doesn't prove a thing.
