Dear CNN: Read the Esquire piece about the Birthers-Your colleague, Lou Dobbs-is one of them!
Dear CNN "Talent," Read the Esquire piece about the Birthers. Your colleague, Lou Dobbs, is one of them.
by Joe Sudbay (DC) on 8/11/2009 10:04:00 PM

This is the GOP base. They're extremists, no doubt. And scary. But, CNN gives them an hour of credibility in primetime every weeknight via Lou Dobbs.

..............................

Lou Dobbs is probably the most prominent birther. That distinction must make CNN proud. All of the reporters and anchors at the network surely value having a colleague who serves as an on-air racist. But, there are other birthers who are getting attention, including their leader, Orly Taitz. Esquire's John Richardson profiled Taitz and some of her birther pals. These are the people who inform the thinking of CNN's Lou Dobbs. It's quite a trip Richardson took with Taitz. Here's some of what he learned:

There's a cemetery somewhere in Arizona where they just dug 30,000 fresh graves, which wait now for the revolution.

Baxter International a major Obama contributor developed a vaccine for bird flu that actually kills people.

Google Congressman Alcee Hastings and House Bill 684 and you'll see that they're planning at least six civilian labor camps.

Google an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about train cars with shackles.


And, this is key for everyone in the media, especially all of Dobbs' colleagues at CNN:

This is the stuff that the media never gives Taitz a chance to say because it's so focused on the news hook of the "birther" issue. (And, believe me, this has been merely a tiny sample of what I saw on my road trip this spring.) But this is the stuff that reveals who she really is, and what this movement really is.

What Really Happens When You Demand the President Produce His Birth Certificate?



You get a bunch of outrageous people very nice people, mind you, but frustrated enough to believe anything about Obama storming the offices of the attorney general, the secretary of state, and the FBI. At the center of it all was Esquire.com's political columnist, bearing witness to the "birthers" for the conclusion of a two-part series.

1. Fire Dobbs from CNN. Fire Buchanan from MSNBC.
Freakin' dangerous haters and racists, both of them.

Goodbye.
