In a story that is so crazy that you’d think it’s a spoof, Internet tabloid WorldNetDaily reports that President Clinton and Hillary Clinton were the first birthers and that they, ready to exposes Obama, where cowed into silence after threats were made by Obama operatives. The Clintons were so afraid for the life of their daughter that they a) didn’t raise the birther issue in the 2008 campaign and b) freely blabbed the story to a Hollywood producer Bettina Viviano.
What’s wrong with this story? Let me count the ways.
Fox News reporter show host Heather Childers Tweeted a typical Fox-style slur, but one that apparently upset Fox management. Childers Tweeted:
Thoughts? Did Obama campaign threaten Chelsea Clinton’s Life 2 Keep Parents Silent?
According to Fox News Senior Vice President Michael Clemente, the Tweets were a “mistake.” I guess Fox isn’t quite ready to think about taking responsibility for something that would take a thesaurus to adequately criticize.
