Well, He Would Know
Topic: WorldNetDaily
Jack Cashill has a new book out, "Hoodwinked:
How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture
," published by Nelson Current (aka the former incarnation of WND Books). WorldNetDaily, not surprisingly, is promoting the book in the usual ways, including a 10-part series of excerpts.

From the WND promo ad-slash-"news" article:

For a century, reveals "Hoodwinked," so-called "progressive" writers and filmmakers – multiculturalists like [Ward] Churchill and Alex Haley, sexual revolutionaries like Kinsey and Margaret Mead, quasi-Marxists like Noam Chomsky and Michael Moore, and radical naturalists like Paul Ehrlich and Rachel Carson – have been using falsehood and fraud as primary weapons in their assault on traditional American culture.

Unlikely to appear as an example in Cashill's book is Cashill himself, though he has perpetrated his own share of hookdwinking. As ConWebWatch has documented, Cashill wrote a seven-part opus (what is it with Cashill and multi-part articles?) purportedly demonstrating that anti-abortion extremist James Kopp was innocent of killing abortion doctor Barnett Slepian -- a few months before Kopp confessed to killing Slepian.

Hoodwinked, indeed.
