Journalism Fail: Boston Globe Reporter Had Obama Sr. Immigration Records Since 2009
Bluegrass Pundit ^ | Saturday, April 30, 2011 | Bluegrass Pundit

In what appears to be a shocking journalistic fail, a Boston Globe reporter acquired Barack H. Obama Sr.'s immigration records in 2009 under a FOIA request.

(Boston Globe)- The INS documents, released to this reporter through a Freedom Of Information Act request in 2009 in the course of research on a biography of the elder Obama to be released in July, reveal Harvard’s crucial role in the tumultuous course of the president’s father’s life. The documents were made public Wednesday by the weekly newspaper, The Arizona Independent.
The records were very uncomplimentary to Obama Sr. He is described as a serial womanizer, polygamist and a "slippery" character. According to the documents, Harvard tried to have Obama Sr. deported. The records were released this week by another newspaper, Arizona Independent, after they received them under a separate FOIA request. The Boston Globe reporter is writing a book and it is unclear if this information would have been included. The mainstream media has a strong aversion to reporting negative information about President Obama and Democrats. The National Enquirer broke the John Edwards' "Love Child" story. The mainstream media suppressed it even after the National Enquirer broke the story.

The media is in fail mode. Nothing but a partisan political operation. Controlled by the DNC.

The story will be spun to show what a racist institution Harvard was then.

Just doing their job. There is no pretense of actual reporting anymore. They are paid political operatives.

“Journalistic fail”. Talk about being charitable.

You know - I'm sick and tired of this media malpractice.

They keep from us important information if it is harmful to Democrats.

They propagate falsehoods if they will harm Conservatives.

Can't we organize a massive Tea Party demonstration aimed at media headquarters?

I'd love to see 250,000 enraged patriots storming the headquarters of NBC, ABC, CBS, NPR, AP, Reuters, etc...

What we need is TPN. A new network.

Exactly, why bother even using terms like "reporter" or "journalist" for these people, they clearly have no interest in reporting all the facts - which such job titles would imply - they're nothing more than boot-licking Democratic Party propagandists.

The story will be spun to show what a racist institution Harvard was then...they may try...but if you could be so offensive and dishonest that even Harvard wants to get rid of you, then this information will be hard to spin away...

Accusations of racism are all they have left.

The liberal media hid the report because HUSSEIN THE ELDER KNOCKED UP an UNDERAGE WHITE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT who was forced to have an ABORTION.

As an African, I have been intrigued by controversy around President Obama’s birth records:

1. If Obama’s mother was an American, doesn’t that make him an American citizen? I know a couple of African man / American women couples where I live - aren’t their children American citizens? Are their children disqualified from contesting for the presidency?

2. I don’t think it is in good taste to dwell on President Obama’s father’s womanising ways. If there is anything the World loves and respects about America, it is the fact that Americans respect and admire you for who you are and what you made out of your life, not your parents misdeeds.

Leave snobbery to the Brits, the Brits are hung up on class and are obsessed with whether your great grand daddy was a Yorkshire coal miner or a Norman knight.

3. The World is watching. You might not know it - the US is most popular in Sub-Saharan Africa. Many Sub-Saharan Africans are monitor US politics and are sophisticated enough to understand that Obama’s management of the economy leaves a lot to be desired. The Zambian born economist Dambisa Moyo has rightly criticised the management of major Western economies.

What we cannot understand is the obsession with Obama’s origins. I have a childhood friend, David. His parents had him in America and he works in America as a pharmacist. I have another childhood friend, Tony. Tony was born in Africa to an African father and an American mother. Both Tony and David work in America, are accepted in America and I believe are eligible to run for the presidency if they so desire.

If you are interested in public diplomacy and the perception of America in Sub-Saharan Africa, please handle this matter with care. Every one understands the frustration with the mismanagement of the American economy but the subliminal message the obsession over Obama’s origins sends really needs to be handled with utmost care.

Journalism? What does the Boston Globe have to do with Journalism?
