#1462: Heather Childers

Yet another insane conspiracy theorist. Heather Childers is particularly notable for promoting the idea that President Obama and his team threatened to kill Chelsea Clinton to keep her parents silent during his 2008 nomination campaigns (a story apparently first pushed by one Bettina Viviano). Why? Since the Clintons unearthed proof that Obama was born in Kenya, of course. Why do you ask?

Not content with that, Childers has also pushed the idea that “President Obama channels Joseph Stalin and attacks Supreme Court justices” because the Supreme Court (in some people’s imagination) has concluded that the “[a]uthenticity of Obama’s birth certificate [is a] ‘cause for concern.’” Well, ostensibly Childers is just JAQing off. As an investigative reporter, Childers’s duty is to “present both sides but people see what they want.” Indeed.

Childers’s day job is to be one of four rotating co-hosts of the Fox News Channel program Fox and Friends First, and they will certainly not question one of their hosts’ suitability just because said host is certifiably an insane conspiracy theorist. 

Diagnosis: Nuts.
