SUSAN FERRECHIO (WASHINGTON EXAMINER): The media brought up the question of whether Harris was a citizen or not. The president didn’t bring it up. The president was answering a reporter’s question. Obviously you can criticize the way he answered that question. The media brought it up. They baited him on this.

Before I came on the set, Howard, I was reading a 2008 story form The New York Times questioning whether [John] McCain is eligible to run for president because he was born in the Panama Canal. The media has been doing this themselves to Republican candidates.
