Lapdog media immediately jumps to defense on Obama’s composite biographies with cries of ‘birther’!/ExJon/status/203192104845971456

As Twitchy reported earlier, uncovered a bombshell biography booklet of President Obama that listed him as being born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Breitbart is not a “birther” site and pointing out that President Obama was never vetted, seems to invent “composites” of women and other things in his past should be done. It’s called journalism.

Composite characters in the Obama story include "the New York girlfriend," "Julia," and "Barack Obama."

Some advise for you, President Obama: A little less inserting self in others’ biographies and a little more concentrating on your own. And we don’t mean the composite one.

I wonder if Ronald Reagan knew Obama was born in Kenya when he was writing the precursor to the Buffett Rule.

— John Hayward (@Doc_0) May 17, 2012

The bombshell report wasn’t questioning Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate, it was questioning Obama himself: Why all the made up stuff always? It was also questioning the media. The mainstream media sure as heck didn’t vet Obama at all and they continue to refuse to do so.

RT @trscoop: I wonder when @BuzzFeed is going to post the newly found Obama literary bio

They are too busy trying to bash Romney for “whatever it was I said.”

Mitt Romney Stands By What He Said … Whatever It Was

— BuzzFeed Politics (@BuzzFeedPol) May 17, 2012

That’s more important than a completely crafted background and zero transparency, right?

Instead of asking Obama about his being a birther, the media will demand Romney condemn the story

— JWF (@JammieWF) May 17, 2012

The Left and members of the press immediately jumped all over and the story, rather than being, you know, reporters and finding out why Obama pulled an Elizabeth Warren.

Promotional booklets > government documents, I suppose.

@jaketapper I know this is difficult for you. You might be ridiculed. But be brave. Like the reporters of the past.

— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) May 17, 2012

@jaketapper I don't think it's beyond the pale to simply ask Obama if he approved of the bio.

— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) May 17, 2012

@NathanWurtzel That's the fear. THat the story will be just "there goes those birthers again." But this is a story. Period.

— Kathleen McKinley (@KatMcKinley) May 17, 2012

@KatMcKinley so the state of Hawaii forged a birth certificate? Or the literary agent was mistaken?

— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) May 17, 2012

@jaketapper @KatMcKinley Or Obama is just a liar? Jake, great job by you and the MSM vetting Obama in '08 #Pathetic

— Richard Garrell (@RichardGarrell) May 17, 2012

@jaketapper Did you read the editor's note accompanying the piece? You're speaking as though you didn't.

— Matt Bramanti (@mattbramanti) May 17, 2012

@jaketapper Option C: Obama lied to his literary agent. @KatMcKinley

— RB (@RBPundit) May 17, 2012

Including “research fellow” at Media Matters. Evidently, research – and reading – are hard.

Zero of them have done so. Please retract this. RT @owillis nice of team breitbart to embrace birtherism. again.

birthers! jeremiah wright! … oh god, palin's gonna say something today isn't she? #flashbackto2008

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) May 17, 2012

cons: we aren't birthers, but its just… OMG THIS BROCHURE PROVES EVERYTHING

— Oliver Willis (@owillis) May 17, 2012

It proves that most of the media are hacks, Oliver. Also, your Palin crush is super embarrassing. You just can’t stop thinking about her, can you?

But, the story from the media will, of course, be “ZOMG look at those cuckoo pants birthers!!!111″!/BuzzFeedAndrew/status/203184339893231616

OR DID HE???? RT @EricBoehlert i'm kinda bummed Prof. Derrick Bell didn't write the "birther booklet"….

'Andrew Breitbart was never a 'Birther''

— Dylan Byers (@DylanByers) May 17, 2012

It’s old and stuff! Silly birthers! If it is so old, then why didn’t the media cover it before?

From Politico: surprises with an utterly reasonable editors note, before reporting on an old claim that Obama was born in Kenya:

Okay, we know journalism is hard for y’all, but reading is fundamental. They are not claiming he was born in Kenya. They are reporting on the fact that Barack Obama pulled a Warren and said he was born in Kenya.

The media should be questioning why President Obama needs to continuously hide behind pasts that have been constructed for him.

Dubya! RT @RBPundit: Someone told Obama's literary agent that Obama was born in Kenya when he was born in Hawaii. Who told the agent that?

— el Sooper (@SooperMexican) May 17, 2012

Remember when we had to keep investigating where Presidents 1 – 43 were actually born because they themselves kept confusing us about it?

— S.M (@redsteeze) May 17, 2012

Good catch. MT @DrewMTips Actual interesting part of the "Kenya Bio"…Obama worked as a business reporter? Let's see his stories.

— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) May 17, 2012

Hey, remember when the press did that? No more. But luckily for us all, citizens are the new journalists.

Ha. The media may be racing to cover Obama's bio "oopsie", but a look at the comments sections of the articles show people aren't buying it!
