CNN Says Trump WRONG About Where 'Birther' Conspiracy Started; Top Hillary Aide Says, Actually....

This has not been a good day for CNN. First they got tricked into airing 20 minutes live of Donald Trump's campaign rally while they waited for him to finally make his "birther" speech, which only lasted 35 seconds. Now, after saying that Trump's claim that Hillary Clinton's campaign started the "birther" conspiracy is dead wrong, Hillary's former campaign manager accidentally admitted to a CNN reporter that Trump, for the most part, is right.

In his speech today, Trump said that President Barack Obama was definitely born in the U.S., distancing himself from the controversy surrounding the authenticity of Obama's Hawaii birth certificate. At the same time he made the claim about the Hillary campaign's involvement.

After "fact-checking" Trump and asserting that he was wrong, CNN had top reporter Wolf Blitzer interview Hillary's 2008 campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle, according to Breitbart.

But after claiming that neither Hillary nor her campaign had anything to do with the "birther" rumors, Doyle let it slip that while Hillary's camp did not start the controversy, one of their staffers played a big role in perpetuating it.

Doyle admitted, "There was a volunteer coordinator, I believe, in late 2007, I believe, in December, one of our volunteer coordinators in one of the counties in Iowa — I don’t recall whether they were an actual paid staffer, but they did forward an email that promoted the conspiracy."

That campaign staffer was fired, but the damage was already done.

Despite that bombshell of a news bit, it was Breitbart that broke the story. Hours later, CNN did not make any mention of their own interview with Doyle in their front page story, which triumphantly proclaims "He finally admits it" above a photo of Trump. As of 4:30 p.m. eastern, the story still doesn't mention Doyle's admission.

Trump, along with many other conservatives, has referred to CNN as the "Clinton News Network."
