FOX News allows former GOP congressman to repeat birther lie on air without correction.

"Appearing on Fox News Monday, John LeBoutillier explained that his new fictional book uses "real things" like Obama's grandmother once claimed she was present for his Kenyan birth."...

...""There's so much real stuff in this book. Like you asked me before we came on the air about Obama's grandmother living today in Kenya. And we have her in the book. It's fiction but in reality, she has claimed consistently that he was born in Mombasa, Kenya. She said this adamantly on the record."

...which is, of course, patently false.

Cheers to the promise of Canada having its own version of that kind of distributor of misinformation and lies. It would appear that conservatives of all nationalities have a vested interest in keeping parts of the electorate deliberately misinformed under the guise of "balance".
