This is a good piece, but at the same time it’s an example of what drives me crazy about the media in general. The tone throughout is a kind of disinterested omniscience, as if there were nothing really unusual about a presidential candidate who spreads absolutely insane conspiracy theories. Sure, they say the Birther CT was “long-debunked,” but then they proceed to write about it as just another political tool, like an economic plan or something.
Argh. News from nowhere, written by people with no viewpoints.
