there never is if someone is telling the truth. news organizations don't announce "we did a background check and they check out fine." that's not news.

you don't think something other than "i bet she's a plant' would be on malkin or drudge by now? those types vet way faster than the msm.

I want to know more, and we've not seen more. Anyone who dares challenge Obama becomes an open book. We've seen no independent info on her, and no indication that anyone at all has asked the questions or gotten the responses.

I've seen on blogs that people have done PeopleSearch and PeopleFinder and have found her, and that she has an address and telephone number ... now, I'm not taking that at face value that it's the same woman or that it's current information. I'd like Malkin, Drudge or the MSM to do at least a cursory inquiry to find out more about her story.

Yes, because you have absolutely no ability to comprehend the concept of questions.

More and more, it's seeming like Panthers Lover doesn't want "fairness." She wants retribution for JTP's scheme being found out. I'm sure she would like nothing more than to find out that this lady was hand-picked by Obama's handlers or something...

You increasingly try to interject motives where there are none. All I have asked is whether anybody had or planned to ask questions. That is not too much to ask. Really ... it's not.

I saw her and Mrs. Thompson (who gave her the house) on Fox & Friends this morning and she seems sincere and genuine. I have never said I doubted her story. My question was about whether the media would even ask.

Sorry ... I don't see a question. What would you like to know, honestly?

so the whole point of all this bitching and moaning was to figure out if any of the posters here were part of the media and could fill you in on the vetting process did i get that right

I think it was either to confirm that we should be happy that a woman is homeless or that the media at least did a proper job of investigating the claim.
