Jean Claude Tremblay, a computer graphics expert trotted out by Fox News to authenticate the Ruler’s long-form birth certificate released April 27, is incensed with the network for deliberately misquoting him and for ignoring his requests to correct Jana Winter’s story “Expert: No Doubt Obama’s Birth Certificate is Legit.”
“I no longer trust Fox News. Despite my protests, Fox News will not allow me to correct their story.”
To rebuff those who doubted the birth certificate’s authenticity, Winter wrote, “a leading software expert says there’s no doubt about its authenticity, and he dismisses claims of fraud as flat-out wrong.”
“I never said that. … Ms. Winter has attributed a conclusion to me in the title that I did not mention in the [telephone] interview.”
Tremblay repeatedly asked Winter and Fox News to correct the piece, but the story remains posted without any corrections or qualifications.
“Fox News is not trustworthy … they have never replied to me or allowed me to post my corrections to their report of my comments and views.”
Tremblay, who lives in Montreal, Canada, said that he has no interest in whether or not the Ruler’s birth certificate is bogus or real.
“I’m not an expert on the image modification or typography. … I’m not a detective specializing in the forgery of electronic documents. I am an instructor in graphic design software working to help people work faster, better and smarter.”
Yet Tremblay’s lack of expertise didn’t stop Winter and Fox News from passing him off as an expert on electronic document forgery.
It’s too bad the people’s champion, Buffo Bill O’Reilly, was more fixated on his fortune than he was lookin’ out for the folks. There’s a sign post up ahead: Next stop, the No Spin Zone.
