Heather Childers, a “straight news” anchor for the Fox News weekend program America’s News Headquarters and co-host of Fox & Friends First, tweeted this afternoon: “Thoughts? Did Obama Campaign Threaten Chelsea Clinton’s Life 2 Keep Parents Silent?” and linked to a blog post pushing a conspiracy involving the Obama campaign murdering, or threatening to murder, individuals to keep quiet questions about Obama’s eligibility. – Media Matters
It’s all the Clintons’ fault, according to Fox News anchor Heather Childers and her now infamous birther tweets.
Well, she didn’t exactly say that, but what Heather Childers did was link to a notorious birther site article that pushed the boundaries of birtherism, accusing the ’08 Obama campaign of threatening murder, after committing one to keep everything on the hush-hush.
Godfatherpolitics.com has declared that President Obama’s birth certificate is a “fraud.” Recent posts on the subject include: “World Media Picking Up Obama Birth Certificate Fraud While America’s Media Remains Silent”; “Mr. President – Put Up or Shut Up!”; and “Alabama Supreme Court Justice Says Barack Obama Birth Certificate Would Not Stand Up in Court.” – Media Matters (links for posts available at the link)
And guess who was next on the list? Former Pres. Bill Clinton, with Democratic insiders all knowing the dirty details of the origins of birtherism.
The headline to the post Childers linked to: “Did Barack Obama Campaign Threaten Life of Chelsea Clinton to Keep Parents Silent on Obama’s Ineligibility?”
This broad would make a perfect co-host for Sean Hannity.
Mediaite reached out for a statement from FNC and got one:
“The tweets have been addressed with Heather and she understands this was a mistake.” – Michael Clemente, Fox News senior vice president for news
The news division of Fox News has lower standards than Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant.
