In putting together our article on Aaron Klein's WorldNetDaily coverage of the Israeli election, we were aware that Klein hadn't come through on one aspect of his campaign of attacking Ehud Olmert: the fawning pro-Benjamin Netanyahu article. Today, he fills that void by sneaking one in under the wire of today's election.
A March 28 article by Klein uncritically repeats Netanyahu's claim that "Without a strong Likud, we will not have sovereignty in Jerusalem." Most of the rest of Klein's article is rehash of previous articles attacking Olmert's Kadima party for suggesting a division of Jerusalem -- though for the first time, Klein acknowledges that Netanyahu's Likud party is "expected to come in third place at today's ballots." But even then, Klein tried to put a positive spin on that bit of bad news, claiming that "low voter turn out and the largely unpolled younger voters could sway elections in Likud's favor." As we previously noted, WND is playing up the claim that polls showing Likud behind are inaccurate.
