MSNBC's unofficial web-branch, known as Politico, couldn't move fast enough to dismiss our story about the possibility that as a grown adult, President Obama, or those around him, might have had faked his biography Elizabeth Warren-style. To Politico, of course, that's not news. The backgrounds of private citizens supporting Governor Romney, however, elicits all kinds of time, attention, manpower, and publicity from Politico's wretched left-wingers.
Back in 2008, Politico's Jonathan Martin did oppo-research on a private citizen Barack Obama approached for a photo-op.

My question is will the FR moderation team permit us to post the personal information of various reporters? We already do much the same with Federal judges where someone is always quick to post a bio on a judge when they make a decision of note.
But what about a reporter’s personal information? What would be acceptable? Tax liens, bankruptcies, resumes? What would not be acceptable?
With reporters they don’t seem to have any discretion so I’m thinking pretty much anything goes. If they want to put private citizens into the public then why not let’s apply the same rules to the reporters?
I’m still not sure about tax, etc. The first thing came to my mind is political donations, which should be fair game in any standard.
They have entered the "public domain" and so, if it can be verified from published, legitimate sources, our reporting is as good as theirs.
