Simple Answers to Simple Questions, Birther Edition


WorldNetDaily, which has been riding the birther traffic train all the way to the bank for the past few months, has a document that purports to be President Barack Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate. They ask: “Is this really smoking gun of Obama’s Kenyan birth?”

No. No, it isn’t.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
