WND Flies Birther Banner Over (Enclosed) Stadium
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily is very excited to tell you about this:

Tonight's NFL matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants had more than just football on the schedule.

It included a special message for the man who calls himself president of the United States.

The banner was originally set to fly above the same stadium during the Cowboys' annual Thanksgiving Day game, but had to be postponed due to inclement weather.

This flyover is another manifestation of our national billboard campaign that began three years ago, asking simply, 'Where's the birth certificate?'" explained Joseph Farah, founder of WND. "The question today is, 'Where's the REAL birth certificate?' since Jerome Corsi's new e-book on the subject completely discredits its validity. We have used billboards because the rest of the media refuses to address seriously the problems of Obama's eligibility. And we will continue to use other creative efforts to address one of the most serious constitutional questions facing our country, namely, 'Is Obama actually eligible for office?'"

What WND conveniently fails to mention: Cowboys Stadium is enclosed -- it has a retractable roof, but it was closed during the game, as the accompanying video shows. Therefore, nobody in the stands saw the banner.

Also, note the mostly empty parking lots in the video, as well as the abundance of daylight. This tells us that WND's banner was flown well before the game started, which at 7:20 pm CT was well after dark. So it didn't even reach many football fans outside the stadium.

In other words, WND wasted thousands of dollars on a stunt that almost nobody saw. Brilliant!
