On the 22nd, the NYT published some remarkable poll results:
A plurality of Republican voters, 47 percent, said they believed Mr. Obama, who was born in Hawaii, was born in another country; 22 percent said they did not know where he was born, and 32 percent said they believed he was born in the United States.
These numbers demonstrate the triumph of propaganda. I would suggest that Donald Trump's quasi-candidacy is not a serious play for the White House -- rather, he is doing what he is doing in order to give birtherism a boost.
Here's what's odd about that remarkable poll: The NYT hid the numbers
in an unrelated (and much less interesting) story about Republican disenchantment with their current candidates. Then the story underwent a rewrite. Now the paragraph quoted above has disappeared
What has happened to the New York Times? Why would they censor a story of this sort?
