This is way beyond absurd. It is one thing when a political commentator misrepresents facts but it is entirely something else when a straight news correspondent propagates unsettled opinions as settled facts.
Fox News' Kevin Corke erroneously reports Canadian-born Ted Cruz is eligible to be President by virtue of being born to American citizen parentS. The major problem with that claim is Cruz's father was not a U.S. citizen at the time of Cruz's birth. Never mind one must also be born on U.S. soil to be an Article II "natural born Citizen".
What is stunning about this is most of the reports arguing Cruz is eligible actually note it is not clear cut in their opinions. Yet, they continue to be pushed as a settled matter. By both the Left and Right.
