Joseph Farah Lies Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily

One statement stood out to us in Joseph Farah's Oct. 27 WorldNetDaily column:

When I’m wrong I admit it. 

I'll pause for a bit while you laugh hysterically.

OK.

Farah's statement, of course, is a bald-faced lie. We've compiled a whole column of falsehoods Farah has told that he has yet to admit, much less correct.

And even when Farah and WND admit errors, it's usually a protracted battle to get to that admission. The most egregious example of this is WND spending seven years fighting a libel and defamation lawsuit from a Tennessee car dealer whom WND claimed was a "suspected drug dealer," before abruptly settling the lawsuit out of court just before it was to go to trial, admitting that the claim was completely false and reaching a secret settlement that WND has refused to disclose to its readers.

Farah and WND admit no wrong until they're forced to, by threat of lawsuit or getting caught in such a massive boner they have no other choice.

We'd ask Farah to correct his claim to reflect reality, but we already know his record on such things.
