Is mainstream media running interference for Obama against new-media news-breakers?

In the final Presidential debate, Sen. John McCain was non-specific in calling for exposure of Sen. Barack Obama's history with and relation to the actions of ACORN, which is alleged to have coerced bankers to issue mortgages to underqualified, credit-risky, minorities. The defaulted loans are fundamental to the US investment banking disaster. Today, AP confirms the FBI is investigating ACORN for suspicion of voter-registration fraud.
A second senior law enforcement official says the FBI was looking at results of recent raids on ACORN offices in several states for any evidence of a coordinated national scam.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Justice Department regulations forbid discussing ongoing investigations particularly so close to an election.
ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, says it has registered 1.3 million young people, minorities and poor and working-class voters — most of whom tend to be Democrats.

There are concerns about the nature of Sen. Obama's qualifications, ideologies, influences, and financial supporters which the mainstream media has avoided reporting about- which have been spotlighted in the new-media and the blogosphere.

Barack Obama poses with Kenyan relatives. Blogger "All the Latest News" writes: "The major reason that Obama will not release his birth certificate is that his father’s race is not listed as “black” but as “Arabic” which is how many Kenyan passports from the 1960s were issued."
Yesterday, CNN published a story challenging the trustworthiness of non-mainstream news-sources as rumor-mills: "Candidates hit back hard, fast against online attacks."

CNN reporter Richard Allen Greene designates 'fact'-checking websites as the final arbiters of online truth from fraud. But as the article points-out, former Pennsylvania Attorney General Phillip J. Berg (currently challenging Obama's naturalization qualification in the courts) who has vetted the the 'fact-checkers'?
The Obama rumors have spurred action both for and against the Illinois senator -- including a suit filed in Pennsylvania arguing that he is not eligible to be president because he is not a "natural-born U.S. citizen," and a Web site at isobamamuslim.com that contains a single word: "No."

Philip J. Berg illustrates how hard it is to quash rumors once they spread.

The Philadelphia-area lawyer, who filed the suit against Obama's candidacy, is aware that the Web site FactCheck.org has examined Obama's Hawaii birth certificate and ruled it kosher.

But he doesn't believe it.

"FactCheck.org is owned by Annenberg of Chicago, where Obama sat on the board," the lawyer said, dismissing the Web site's verdict.

FactCheck.org describes itself as a "nonpartisan, nonprofit 'consumer advocate' for voters." It is a project of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
Today, online newspaper, WorldNetDaily, reports a second suit challenging Obama's inclusion on the ballot in the State of Washington: "Man demands state verify birth records or remove senator from ballots."

There are other legitmate criticisms and investigations of Sen. Obama which the media intentionally ignores or chooses to downplay due to their own political biases, claims Melanie Phillips, in her column in Britain's The Spectator, this installment entitled, "Pinch Yourself."

The contrast between, on the one hand, the huge amount of material about Obama’s radical associations that has been published in on-line journals and in a few brave newspapers, and on the other the refusal by big media to address it and to vilify those who do, becomes more astounding by the day.

The Obamaniacs are spinning the relationship between Obama and William Ayers, former of Weather Undergound Terrorism Inc, as of no consequence because this was supposedly a chance acquaintance and because the educational project they worked on, the Annenberg Challenge, was a worthy one.

Stanley Kurtz now nails that canard by showing how, through the Annenberg Challenge, Obama and Ayers channelled funds to extremist anti-American Afrocentric ‘educational’ programmes which were a carbon-copy of the world view of Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s black racist mentor who, under pressure, Obama was forced to repudiate. These programmes promoted, amongst other radical ideas, the ‘rites of passage’ philosophy which attempted to create a ‘virtually separate and intensely anti-American black social world’ in order to ‘counter the potentially detrimental effects of a Euro-centrically oriented society.’

One such teacher taught that, ‘The submission to Western civilization and its most outstanding offspring, American civilization, is, in reality, surrender to white supremacy.’

Kurtz concludes:
However he may seek to deny it, all evidence points to the fact that, from his position as board chair of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, Barack Obama knowingly and persistently funded an educational project that shared the extremist and anti-American philosophy of Jeremiah Wright.
No surprise there, since back in June Kurtz pointed to evidence that Obama shared the black racism of the Trinity United Church of Christ. In this article Obama was reported as rejecting ‘integrationist assimilation’ and wanting to channel black rage more effectively into political organisation.

Kurtz dug out a chapter in a 1990 book called "After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois" in which Obama sketched out how radical black churches could be harnessed to help radicalise the black population. As Kurtz wrote:
So it would appear that Obama’s own writings solve the mystery of why he stayed at Trinity for 20 years. Obama’s long-held and decidedly audacious hope has been to spread Wright’s radical spirit by linking it to a viable, left-leaning political program, with Obama himself at the center. The revolutionizing power of a politically-awakened black church is not some side issue, or merely a personal matter, but has been the signature theme of Obama’s grand political strategy.
You have to pinch yourself – a Marxisant radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshipped with, befriended, endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power anti-white racists, Jew-haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. And apparently it’s considered impolite to say so.
