Winner Is: Mainstream News Outlet Publishes Both 
Sides Of The Article II Argument; Two Citizen Parents

U.S. News & World Report reporter Steven Nelson went where no other mainstream news media outlet has gone. He actually published both sides of the Article II presidential eligibility argument including the common sense position that an Article II "natural born Citizen" is one born on U.S. soil to two U.S. Citizen parents.

Excerpt via U.S. News & World Report:


Orly Taitz, a leading and litigious member of what became known as the “birther” movement during Obama’s presidency, says she likes Cruz, but she probably will file a lawsuit if he becomes president without a federal judge declaring him natural born. 
“I’m very consistent in what I’m saying: I’m saying there’s the same issue with Obama and Ted Cruz,” she says. 
Taitz -- a Soviet-born dentist-turned-lawyer -- says two other prospective presidential candidates, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Gov. Bobby Jindal, R-La., may also be ineligible to be president as their parents were immigrants, which may make Rubio and Jindal dual citizens. 
“Maybe those three candidates should stick together and file one legal action seeking declaratory relief,” she says. 
Taitz appreciates Cruz’s sharp-elbowed approach to his fellow congressmen and to Obama and likes his tax plans, but says she believes "natural born citizen" means someone born without dual citizenship. 
Conservative legal activist Larry Klayman, who last year asked the Department of Homeland Security to begin deportation proceedings against Obama, meanwhile, says Cruz definitely is not eligible to be president. 
“I think very highly of Senator Cruz,” he says. “But he is not eligible to be president as he was not born in the United States or its territories to ‘citizen parents,’ as is required by the Supreme Court case of Minor v. Happersett and other related law.” 
That 1875 decision addressed the term as part of a ruling against a constitutional right to women’s suffrage. 
Rick Tyler, a spokesman for Cruz’s presidential campaign, however, says eligibility is a non-issue, pointing to a Harvard Law Review article by former U.S. solicitors general Paul Clement and Neal Katyal that concluded Cruz is a natural-born citizen, leaning in large part on the Naturalization Act of 1790, which defined the term as including the children of citizens living overseas. 
Tyler said the law review article “puts this issue to rest.” [...] More @ U.S. News & World Report.

Now if the rest of the news media would do their job instead of propagating only the progressive view.

Notice all of the news media outlets ignore the common sense position provided by Dr. Herb Titus!?
