Donald Trump’s dalliance with birtherism was New Yorker Magazine’s #2 most hyped story for 2011.
I agree. Think back to how much media time Trump got for his questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Even though the media well knows that questions about Obama’s birth place are nothing more than unfounded rumors, they were happy to give Trump air time, lots of air time, to raise his doubts.
Surprisingly on Facebook, according to the LA Times, birthers were one of the top political topics on the social networking web site, along with the death of Osama bin Laden and Occupy Wall Street.
I’m not going to point the finger at myself because this whole web site is about unfounded rumors. It’s what I do.
