CNS Press Release Reproduction Watch

An Oct. 12 article by Susan Jones regurgitates a list of claims by the conservative American Family Association that makes several dubious claims about "what conservatives can expect if Democrats regain control of Congress." Among them:

-- A push to make homosexual marriage and polygamy legal in all 50 states.

-- Only liberal judges will be appointed. They will create laws to implement the social agenda liberals cannot get passed through the legislative process.

-- Liberals will make the killing of the unborn more difficult to stop.

-- Liberals will continue to try to rid our society of Christian influence, including any reference to God in our Pledge and on our currency.

-- An increase in taxes to push new social programs.

-- Passing a new "hate crimes" law making it illegal to refer to homosexuality in a negative manner.

Jones reported the AFA's assertions uncritically, making no attempt to fact-check the AFA's claims nor permitting a Democrat to respond. In other words, Jones is doing PR work for the AFA.

This is reminiscient of the 2004 presidential, when CNS refused to fact-check claims made by Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth against John Kerry because CNS agreed with the Swift Boaters' anti-Kerry agenda.
