Attention, WND newshounds! As it does every year, WND is inviting readers to submit their candidates for the most "spiked" stories of the year in Operation Spike!
At this time, news organizations prepare their year-end retrospective replays of what they consider to have been the top news stories of the previous 12 months. But WND's editors have always found it more newsworthy to publish a compilation of the important stories most ignored by the establishment press.
WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah has sponsored "Operation Spike" every year since 1988, and since founding WorldNetDaily in May 1997 has continued the annual tradition. For the past 11 years, WND has invited its readers to join in and submit what they considered the most underreported stories of the past year.
As you might imagine, the submissions are marvelous. 80% are of the "where's the birth certificate?" genre of course, but not all. Here are a few of my favorites, below the fold...

Again you have made the choices difficult but I believe it is a tie for me between #1 Obama's proof of birth and the subprime meltdown with the global warming a close 2nd.
As to Obama being a citizen I questioned this when he started his campaine. When I heard who his father was and where he came from and where Obama lived as a child I wondered if he was even legally here himself. Then where he got his early education at prettymuch settled it for me.
As to the subprime meltdown I was nor surprised that the congresstional finance committee was behind it. There was some questions brought up in the 90's that was quickly squelched also.
Global warming? Where? It reminds me of the global cooling in the late 60's when Los Angles got snow one year (1968). Right now we have Oklahoma reporting the most snow ever at 14 inches and Dallas with the first snow in 80 years. If I were to guess I would think we have a colling trend right now and that my friends is of much more concern because of our food supply. We need the sun spots to return to warm us a little more.

The ultimate unreported story of the year HAS to be the comment by Michelle to a womans group that zeros mother was "very young and very pregnant", when he was born. No mention that she was married at the time
