TV Networks Reject Ad Questioning Obama's Citizenship

TV Networks Reject Ad Questioning Obama's Citizenship

Oh, that liberal media and its gatekeeping television networks. They won't let the professional-looking spend its American dollars on air time. The ad compiles all the Obama-isn't-an-American-citizen rumors into one minute, most of which I can't find credible sources for — on either side. Though the citizenship dispute is disproved on

What are the allegations?

  • Obama refuses to release his original birth certificate.
  • His Kenyan grandmother said she remembers him being born in Kenya.
  • Obama (or is he?) attended school in Indonesia under his stepfather's last name, Sottero.
  • He traveled to Pakistan in 1981 when it was illegal for US residents.

The ad works its way up to the final crescendo: "Fact: The Constitution still matters." Except, maybe, that's really more of an opinion. To see the video,

This is just another example of how the liberal media will protect one of their own. They are so far up Obama's butt I just take everything they say with a grain of salt.

My stepmother has worked as the general manager of several radio stations in several states and she has never been required to air an ad that her company didn't want to.

NOT be allowed to be the President of this nation. Why in the world should we allow Obama or anyone else in the future to run this nation if they are not a natural born citizen? It matters folks! Secondly, my father owns a news talk station and during the run up to the election the Obama campaign spent $40 thousand with us on ads. God knows my father did not want to run them and got constant complaints from our listeners about having to hear them but by law we could not turn them down. If we had no choice but to air something so againist our belief system them these liberal news outlets should have to as well.

"Hain, staff at fact check have seen,touched, smelled, and photographed his birth certificate. What do you want him to do? Go door to door and let everyone take a sniff for herself?" Could they? ;)

Putting a copy in jpeg form on the internet is not releasing it. But ok.

"Seriously, what was said in this ad that was not a fact. No one has told me. " Hain, as Jill pointed out he DID release his birth certificate.

Hey I mean Fox refused to run an ad for condoms. I think if they can do that then stations can refuse to run this ad. Plus I think this ad is misleading. There are no facts that he's not a citizen like this claims, just unsubstantiated rumors.

"obviously someone doesnt think it was answered." That's not the same thing as it not being answered, though (this isn't directed at you, CG, just in general). I mean, it seems there are people who won't believe that his birth certificate is real until they've been personally allowed to touch, smell, and taste it, and even then I imagine a few would still have doubts. There's not much anyone can do about that. It's like trying to change the minds of people who are convinced that 9/11 was a conspiracy by the American government. Not going to happen.

I made it though all/most of the comments. I'm glad they remove comments here because otherwise it would get out of hand. I agree their reasoning doesn't always make sense but I don't think we should do away with it altogether. I'm sorry I missed the fray yesterday. My blood pressure just increased reading people claim this is censorship. Whether you think Obama is a citizen or not, fine, but to claim this is censorship just shows a total lack of understanding about what censorship really is.

"I just wish that he would show his real birth certificate." He has released his birth certificate. People just want something to justify their disrespect and absurd ideas.
