NewsBusters Pretends There Isn't A Link Between Tea Partiers, Birthers
Topic: NewsBusters

Lamenting MSNBC's alleged "quest to link conservatives with the birther movement," Scott Whitlock complained in a Feb. 5 NewsBusters post that Norah O'Donnell said that "Presidenet Obama sends a message to those who question his citizenship, this as the tea party movement gets ready for its first big convention." Whitlock added, "At no point did O'Donnell explain or justify the connection, other than her apparent assumption that tea partiers equal birthers."

Whitlock neglects to mention that one keynote speaker at the convention, WorldNetDaily's Joseph Farah, is a raging birther who will prominently feature the subject in his speech, and that another keynote speaker, Sarah Palin, has expressed birther sentiments as well.
