Swift Boater Jerome Corsi Gearing Up For Birther Attack On Obama

Reported by Ellen - April 21, 2011 -

Fox Nation reports that Swift Boater Jerome Corsi is preparing a book that is obviously designed to do to Obama what Corsi did to John Kerry - only worse. Instead of attacking Kerry's war record, this one is designed to question President Barack Obama's citizenship. And just as with the Swift Boat campaign, there's every indication that Fox News will be a willing partner with this smear.

Fox News has already become the Birther Channel. But this little nugget from Fox Nation, which was the number one story in my daily email digest from them (screen grab below), speaks volumes:

In a post called, Drudge: 'Missing Records in Hawaii, Missing Records in Kenya, Missing Records in Indonesia'… Fox Nation breathlessly reports the "**Exclusive**" that "the nation's top private investigators" (never mind that Corsi is a discredited bigot), will produce,

"WHERE'S THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President."

"It's utterly devastating," reveals a source close to the publisher. "Obama may learn things he didn't even know about himself!"

In fact, this was not such an exclusive story. Fox Nation previously reported the same news back on March 28, 2011 (found via Media Matters). In the earlier post, called Birth Certificate TV Ads Ready to Go…, Fox Nation gushed,

Two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi, a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard and a senior staff writer at WND, has written a new book that promises to be a game-changer on the issue of Barack Obama's eligibility.

...(T)his book is destined to be a huge bestseller and change the dynamics of the debate over eligibility – IF, of course, the book is not spiked by the hostile establishment media when it is officially released in May.

Anyone want to bet how many Fox News hosts will "just ask" if this might explain why President Obama doesn't believe in American exceptionalism? Bows to foreign leaders? Not anti-Muslim enough? Fill in your own blank.
