|The birth certificate|
Today Shepherd Smith hosted Juan Williams to discuss the release of President Obama’s “long form” birth certificate. In the five-minute video segment which can be seen to the left, Smith and Williams condemn the media, including his own network, for generating the story over the past two years. Smith has been willing to deliver a scathing rebuke of his own network in the past, and today’s segment followed in that pattern.
As Williams put it, the release of the long form birth certificate has not put an end to the conspiracy theories against Obama.
Now others are moving on to theories that the President somehow produced fake transcripts to get into Harvard Law School. Williams says that the theories are being created because of a general anger towards the President and even concedes that it has a “racial tinge” to some degree.

Smith goes on to say it “just flat sad” that people like Donald Trump are being extensively covered by then media while more important issues, such as the war in Afghanistan, go ignored.
