Joe Arpaio says there's a media conspiracy against birthers 'bigger than Watergate'

Joe Arpaio, a conservative Maricopa Country Sheriff, is currently leading a deep investigation into the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate. Despite the fact that for most Americans this controversy was ended once and for all when the president released his official long-form document, Arpaio insists he is going to reveal new information and claims that there is a media conspiracy against birthers, which is “bigger than Watergate”. The Huffington Post reports:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the Maricopa County law enforcer who is leading an widely derided investigation into the authenticity of President Obama’s birth certificate, believes that the media is purposefully downplaying birthers’ efforts in a conspiracy “bigger than Watergate.”

In an interview with the Arizona Republic’s E.J. Montini, Arpaio said he believes the press is intentionally making the issue seem less important than it is. He also discussed the press conference he held earlier this month about his probe into President Obama’s birth certificate.

“The media all came to make fun of me,” he said of the March 1 press conference. “I’m a little concerned that all of their questions were zeroed in on credibility and that this has been rehashed. They didn’t even ask about the proof of the case. They didn’t ask about the facts that we had.”
