Undercover Sting Catches NPR Talking About Obama Birth

Undercover sting catches NPR talking about Obama birth


A top officer for National Public Radio has confirmed that many Americans still question whether Barack Obama is eligible to be president but admits that the tax-supported organization isn't reporting on it.

It was Betsy Liley, NPR's senior director of institutional giving, who was meeting with another NPR executive, senior Vice President Ron Schiller, when an undercover recorder was running.

In the recording, the two executives discuss how a donor wanted to contribute to coverage of climate change, but only if just one side of the story – the side promoting man-made climate change as fact – is reported.

Liley calls it "complicated."

"There's a political question, and there is a scientific question, and we were talking to him about supporting the science desk. And so we've gone back to the science editor and asked how have you planned to cover this?"

She said the science desk appears to cover climate change as established science but noted that the political desk in Washington may move into other areas.

"So it's more complicated than saying, 'Where was Obama born? In Hawaii or not? Is he an American citizen or not?'" she explains.

"There's still a question about whether he is and that is a fact," she said. "But I think the challenge in our society now is questioning facts. It's not opinions that we're debating. It's what are the facts? Is the world flat? I mean is that the next question we're going to debate?"

As the Washington Times put it, Liley spilled "the birther beans during an undercover sting."

"We're not covering the birthers. We are not covering them," Liley said. "There's a whole movement within the conservative group about questioning something that Obama has said as fact, 'I was born in Hawaii, when it was a United States state.' The group that questions this, some of whom are commentators ... I don't know any who are Democrats, but they are primarily conservative commentators and people who follow them question if Obama is [a natural-born citizen]."

Liley also cites a "stunning" study revealing that "51 percent of Americans now believe that Obama was not born in the United States."

WND has reported on multiple legal challenges to Obama over his status as a natural-born citizen. The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President."

Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama actually was born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama's American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.

Other challenges have focused on Obama's citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.

Still others question his citizenship by virtue of his attendance in Indonesian schools during his childhood and question what passport he used to travel to Pakistan three decades ago.

Adding fuel to the fire is Obama's persistent refusal to release documents that could provide answers as well as his appointment of a team of lawyers to defend against all requests for release of his documentation.

Others who have raised questions include Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Chris Mathews, Laura Ingraham and a long list of media and political personalities.

Obama Insists to Donors He was Born in Hawaii

Obama Tells Democrat Donors: “I was Born in Hawaii. . . . I Can’t Change those Facts”

Obama addressed a group of 152 Democratic donors at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The walls were lined with enormous original oil portraits from the 16th century and guests are seated around about 24 round tables. ...

Obama says that America should not be about the "haves and the have nots."

"That's not the America that I envision for Malia and Sasha," Obama said. "And so we're going to have a lot of work to do."

Calling for Democrats and Republicans to put fighting aside, Obama quips: "I was born in Hawaii, what can I say. I can't change those facts."


Wild Thing's comment........

After seeing the story that Mark sent and the one where obama brings up his birth in the same day LOL He threw that in for a reason. Absolutely! I think he is worried about it and knows it will be a topic of this next campaign he has.

Sure obama was born here LOL not.....if he was then why pray tell is he spending millions of dollars fighting lawsuits that only seek proof of his citizenship?

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

Even if Obama was born here, and every year that 'if' gets bigger not smaller, Republicans would be justified in demanding formal proof because of what the DNC did to Goldwater in 1964.
They had his birth certificute but still took it to the Supreme Court because Arizona was not a state when he was born. Turn about is fair play!

Oooo good point Avitar. I had forgotten all about that.

Obama insists he was born in Hawaii then just porduce a BC as has been asked, but no he insists on spending Millions of supporters money to hide the fact. Even if he is legitimate why the charade, what is he really hiding. Why hide all his school transcripts, and any other pertinent information about him, all of this is hidden. after the campaign and these last two years in hell, we still don't know who this usurper is.

I think one of these days the book will be opened on obama and the country will be shocked. It would be nice if that info is found sooner than later. Then we will have to work hard to remedy the damage this Marxist muslim bastard has done.

I heard he was born behind the picket fence that was behind the grassy knoll on the set of DAKTARI in Kenya? He was swift boated out of there by Ensign Lurch Kerry after Barney Frank parted the Red Sea for the second time?

Avitar, thank you so much, I didn't know that happened.

Mark, I agree, what is it with his school records too. Why is absolutely everything about him hidden, locked away, kept secret. It is insulting how we citizens have been treated about all of this.

Tom, I want that so much, like you said, sooner than later too.

Darth, LOL good one.
