Skip to comments.Trifecta: 3rd media outfit bans Obama eligibility ads
Posted on 06/12/2009 3:54:35 AM PDT by Man50D
Officials with Clear Channel Outdoor, which calls itself the world's largest outdoor advertising company, have joined two other large billboard providers in rejecting four simple words asking the question, "Where's The Birth Certificate?"
Media buyers for WND have confirmed the company refused to accept a request to purchase billboard space for a campaign that is the brainchild of Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND, who believes it is essential to force Obama to produce hard evidence that he is, indeed, a "natural born citizen" as the Constitution requires. He has called upon Americans to donate money to the campaign, which has, thus far, raised about $75,000 for the cause.
Farah maintains Obama has not proved he is constitutionally eligible to serve as president as a "natural born citizen," and suggests only the release of his long-form birth certificate showing the hospital of his birth, attending physician and other details can conclusively meet that test. Obama's presidential campaign released to select news organizations only what is known as a "certification of live birth," a document obtainable in Hawaii in 1961 by Americans actually born outside the country.
Farah confirmed the decisions by three companies not to post the billboard question, however, has not yet even dented the billboards available across America for the campaign, and the number erected will be limited only by the donations to the campaign.

Don’t look now, but Clear Channel is the same outfit that has a contract with Rush through 2016 for, I believe, $400m.
0bama’s thugs must be working overtime to intimidate everyone to keep them away from the eligibility issue.
Can't help but wonder how much this is all costing zero? Prior to the WND's billboard campaign, there was a story that he'd spent ~$800,000 in lawyer fees to fend off the various challenges to his eligibility. This one must have some big payments going out . . . .
I hope it bankrupts him and no bailouts can be had!
I hope you realize that the intimidation is not physical.
While I would agree most is not, I harken back to the images of the Black Panthers or whatever they call themselves standing at the polling places in Philly wielding clubs. On what basis do you make your assessment? Inside information? I put NOTHING past 0bama's thugs and NO TACTIC is off limits to them, with a nod and a wink from 0bama himself.
Last I heard, it is costing US 1 trillion dollars.
