Fox News smacks anchor for tweeting WND video
wnd.com ^ | April 5, 2012 | Staff

Responding to criticism from the left-wing watchdog site Media Matters, Fox News Channel management says it “addressed” a “mistake” by a news anchor who asked her Twitter followers to weigh in on a claim by an insider in Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign that the Obama camp threatened Chelsea Clinton’s life if her parents exposed what they knew about Obama’s presidential eligibility.

Weekend and early morning anchor Heather Childers distributed the message with a link to a blog that picked up on a WND story that featured a video interview.

In a statement to the website Mediaite, Fox News Senior Vice President Michael Clemente said: “The tweets have been addressed with Heather and she understands there was a mistake.”

Childers has not replied to a WND request for comment.

The WND story cited Hollywood producer Bettina Viviano, who claims that it was a common belief inside Hillary Clinton’s campaign that Obama was not eligible to be president. The charges of Viviano and others connected to the 2008 campaign are now being investigated by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse, which is probing Obama’s eligibility for Arizona’s 2012 ballot.

I think all of the major news networks should be boycotted until they start telling us the truth.

So you believe the truth is that the Obama camp threatened to kill Chelsea Clinton if Hillary exposed his true birth certificate?

Any other president, I’d be offended at the question.

I put NOTHING past this evil fraud.

I don’t know about smacking, but a good spanking may be in order.

Heather, Sarah and Greta could start their own news network and put Fox out of business in a week.

Boycotted? I say dismantled. They are nothing more than propaganda agencies for the coup d’etat that is Obama.

I don't understand what the "mistake" is. There is supposed to still be freedom of speech in this country.

How is asking people's opinions about anything a mistake?

By squashing this Fox News you are contributing to the conspiracy of a cover up. If the story is not true, why bother addressing it unless you have been 'told' not to talk about it.

The first "birther" was a Hillary supporter who was a Pennsylvania deputy attorney general and the Dem party chairman of a very large county.

Heather Childers just played the whole MSM and especially her own bosses at FOX!
Nobody in the media can say any longer that they're not aware of the issue or the importance of it.

The Tell - More attention is being paid to her actions than the story behind her actions.

When it could cost you your broadcasting license, or your very life, it's a mistake to ask questions about certain things, not just any thing.
