Media Matters Joins The Birther Ranks
Shocking headline, right? So how did I fall into this discovery? Well, a friend of mine, Bill Johnson, made a post to his facebook wall about the Obama Birth Certificate, and two discrepancies on it. I, not subscribing to the birther notion, set out to prove it wrong. The first problem, the name of the hospital, was easily resolved. The second problem, however, was a little more difficult. Here it is, as laid out in Bill's post. "If you check a map of Africa from 1961, you will notice that the country of Kenya is not on it. In fact, the country of Kenya did not exist until 1963. It was known as British East Africa until 1963." So I set out to get the scoop on this, when I found this article from Media Matters.
