My apologies. It was somewhere else that I had read that such newspaper  
announcements were, at the time, automatically generated by the registration 
of  a birth.
Other than that, I don't see that I have any responsibility to refute a  
site in whose objectivity I have little faith, especially when it claims to 
have  physically handled the original certificate -- which even Obama only 
claims is a  scan. Anyway, I didn't know about their whitewash until you posted 
the link, and  it doesn't change anything Chase demonstrated in his article.
All I sought to do was to demonstrate, per the article of a document  
production expert, that the long-form certificate "released" by the White House  
claiming to be a simple scan of a real document could actually be shown to 
be a  composed piece of assemblies by people expert in current imaging  
As to motivation, I don't claim to know it. It just seems peculiar to me  
that there is question about virtually every aspect of documentation relating 
to  Barack Obama's significant life history -- a great deal of which is 
simply kept  from public view. 
I wouldn't pass off expert document examination so casually. I once had an  
expert examiner expose the forgery and fraud that an employee was using to  
embezzle my company, and I myself was one of those who could easily 
recognize  the documents produced by Dan Rather as forgeries based on typographic  
expertise. So, I think it is interesting to consider some of the more 
unusual  uses for graphic know-how.

The words ``newspaper'' and ``announcement'' don't appear on  the link you 
gave. Nor have you troubled to make an effort to refute the link  here:
