Pittsburgh Post-Gazette uncritically quoted audience member at Palin rally repeating discredited birth certificate smear of Obama

Summary: Reporting on a rally Gov. Sarah Palin held in Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette quoted an audience member saying of Sen. Barack Obama: “Tell him to go back to Indonesia. Tell him to show his birth certificate.” The Post-Gazette did not note that the charge that Obama has not released a valid U.S. birth certificate has been widely debunked.
