Why is none of this info covered in the national media?

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: How can you so sure that "He is not a Muslim"

Why are none of these questions about Obama's upbringing and past brought up by the national media? We seem to hear and read about everything having to do with Hilary's past and yet none of these questions or information about Obama's past seems to be discussed or known by the vast majority of people who seem enthralled by his talk of change.

Why has no one challenged him about his Muslim connections and/or changed statements regarding this in his past.

What about the "Christian" church he does belong to and their mission statement?

Why do we only hear about his "blackness" but not his white mother who was his primary care giver? Why doesn't she get any credit for who he is or has become?

Why is the national press handling him with "kid gloves" and not asking or bringing this info to the attention of all voters? I want to know who and what he really is about!!
