Sheriff Arpaio's Obama findings ignored by most media

Rate this post

On March 1, 2012, something extraordinary took place in America.
An elected county sheriff held a press conference to present the findings of a 6-month investigation into the murky background of a sitting U.S. president.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio at the March 1 press conference

The sheriff is Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County. He did not undertake the investigation at his own initiative but was formally asked to do so by 250 members of an Arizona Tea Party group. The investigation was conducted by an all-volunteer team, the Cold Posse, comprised of former law enforcement officers and lawyers with law enforcement experience. The posse interviewed dozens of witnesses, examined hundreds of documents, and took numerous sworn statements from witnesses around the world.
The investigators concluded that the online image of Obama’s purported long-form birth certificate and his Selective Service registration likely are forgeries. As lead investigator Mike Zullo put it:
“Absent the authentic Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other credible proof supporting the idea or belief that President Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, as he and the White House have consistently asserted. In fact, absent the authentication of Hawaii Department of Health 1961 birth records for Barack Obama, there is no other proof he was born anywhere within the United States.”
One would think that’s bombshell news that the media, whether they like it or not, would be sure to cover and report.
Not so.
As you can see from this pic taken at the press conference, media presence was sparse:

So did the media report on the press conference?
GiveUsLiberty tells us how the national media responded to the “planet’s biggest news story”:

  • Fox News TV – Silence
  • NBC – Silence
  • CBS – Silence
  • NYT – Silence

These media did cover the press conference:

CBS 5 KPHO, a CBS affiliate in Phoenix, AZ, did report on Arpaio’s press conference on the day of the conference:

The mainstream media’s refusal to report on the press conference can be explained by American journalists being overwhelmingly liberal or Democrat, as evidenced by study after study since the 1981 ground-breaking study by Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman which found that 81 percent of the journalists interviewed voted for the Democratic presidential candidate in every election between 1964 and 1976.
But the media’s liberal bias does not explain why the press conference is ignored by even the major non-liberal talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Glenn Beck.
I went onto conservative Rush Limbaugh‘s website and typed “Arpaio” in the Search bar. The most recent reference Rush made to Arpaio was on February 22, 2012 — more than a week before the press conference. In other words, Rush completely ignored Sheriff Arpaio’s press conference.
I also went searching for “Arpaio” on conservative Sean Hannity‘s website. Hannity’s most recent reference to Arpaio was on November 29, 2011.
I did the same thing on conservative Mark Levin‘s website. Levin’s most recent reference to Arpaio was on December 16, 2011.
In the case of libertarian Glenn Beck, he did something even worse than ignoring Arpaio’s press conference – Beck treated the sheriff’s investigation with derision, calling Obama’s eligibility a “ridiculous” issue. This is what Beck said on his radio show of March 2, 2012:

“Just when Obama was starting to run out of things to say about Republicans, Sheriff Joe Arpaio decides to come out and launch a big investigation into Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Why he decided to bring this ridiculous issue, one that only gives Obama an opportunity to call the right (justifiably so, in this case) ‘crazy’ – is beyond explanation. But, he’s doing it anyway.”

With friends like Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, and Levin, who needs enemies? Americans who care about the integrity of the Constitution’s stipulation that only a “natural born citizen” can be the President of the United States of America truly are political orphans.

H/t beloved Anon and Tina.

  1. all about money, my wife got mad as ever cause i said fox news was just as bad as cnn, why do ya think the govt thugs want to control the internet for, so they can control what u hear and see

  2. I saw a report on FOX the day it happened, it wasn’t ridiculing the Sheriff at all. Am I the only one who saw it?

  3. Oh, but Kirk CAmeron says something about gay marriage or Snooki’s rumored to be pregnant and that’s all over the place…

    • Priorities…
      I believe many stay away from this issue because 1) they know nothing will be done about it by DC rats and 2) speaking of birthed issue will get them labeled as crazy by SRM.
      Disappointing that even Levin ignored it.

      • That would make Sheriff Arpaio one of the “crazies.”
        Of course, by ignoring Arpaio’s press conference, Limbaugh et al are making the scapegoating of birthers as crazy, a self-fulfilling perception.

        • True.
          I have seen other con sites purposely avoid the issue. Don’t get it…

          • I’m not sure what is behind it.
            Couple con sites I visit won’t discuss it because “the BC issue has been addressed”. Maddening…

  4. like the romans, bread and circus, anything to keep ya away from the real issues, make no mistake i know we are about to loose this country to evil.

  5. …seems he changed with first marriage and the hearing problem
    but Catherine has been good for him and he deserves some peace.
    Rush won’t touch 911/truth either…not in the demographics…
    and Ron Paul ? we libertarians are on our own 🙂

  6. the silence of this issue has been deafening….. nothing nowhere either in print or on local tv the obama people will ignore it until it goes away..
    same principle of how they handle the economy throw money at it. spend more money shovel money into friends failed business’s so they can give money to the re- elect obama campaign. obama says the economy is doing fine he says he was born in hawaii he says the gas prices are not high they are hovering around $4 a gallon locally under bush it was $1.89 a gallon but some many obama supporters suck at math they have no clue that 4 dollars is more than 1 dollar hence the 19 trillion dollar deficit just print more money obama says everything is good
