Did Von Brunn Inspire WND?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Talking Points Memo has uncovered a Internet bulletin board posting by James von Brunn -- accused in the shooting of a security guard inside the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington today -- listing all the documents regarding Barack Obama that have supposedly not been released to the public.

Coincidentially, a June 9 WorldNetDaily article by ChelseaSchilling details "more than a dozen other documents" regarding Obama that "remain unreleased or otherwise blocked from the public eye."

Did the list von Brunn posted inspire Schilling's WND article?

(Note: Von Brunn's post lacks the racist, anti-Semitic tone found on other von Brunn writings, so we doubt that he was the author -- he was likely repeating some email spam. Still, that would mean WND is getting its story ideas from email spam. Is that any way to run a "news" organization?)
