As we know all too well, when WorldNetDaily and its editors are confronted by facts that make them look bad, they respond with personal attacks against their accusers.
Fox News' Shepard Smith is the latest to learn that lesson. A June 10 WND article by Joe Kovacs repeats Smith's statement during coverage of the shooting of a security guard at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington that "there is no truth whatsoever – zero" to claims that Obama is "not a citizen of the United States." Kovacs responded to Smith's statement by devoting five paragraphs to rehashing a 2000 incident in which a car driven by Shepard allegedly clipped another reporter who was saving a parking space for a friend -- despite its irrelevance to anything going on today.
At no point, however, does Kovacs mention the reason that Smith brought up the subject: The accused shooter, James von Brunn, is a white supremacist who also believes in the WND-promoted conspiracy that Obama is hiding evidence that he's not a "natural-born citizen" and, thus, ineligible to be president. As we've noted, von Brunn's name is on an Internet posting of a list of Obama-related documents that have supposedly not been released to the public; the day before the Holocaust Museum shooting, WND published an article that appears to have been inspired by von Brunn's list.
Meanwhle, in defending WND's pursuit of the birth certificate conspiracy, Kovacs repeats a false claim about it: that "the woman the president says is his paternal grandmother, Sarah Obama, claimed to have been present at her grandson's birth in Mombasa, Kenya."
