Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the press have often not gotten along, but it was taken to a new level on Thursday.

In a tweet, Arpaio specifically named several mainstream news sources in the Valley and said "they can no longer be trusted."

But Arpaio didn't stop there.

While Arpaio has had a long-standing feud with the alternative Phoenix New Times, he generally tolerates some of the larger media outlets in Phoenix.

Earlier this week, Arpaio announced that his Cold Case Posse, freshly returned from a Hawaiian investigation, had found conclusive proof that President Barack Obama's birth certificate was a forgery.

Some called Arpaio's investigation a waste of time or a distraction from a racial profiling suit that began Thursday.
