Aaron Klein's Anti-Obama Twofer
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Aaron Klein's anti-Obama article tally is up to 30 now (as opposed to just one article critical of John McCain). This time, Klein gleans from right-wing blogs for his attacks.

The first article details how Obama "has been caught in an apparent gaffe" over which relative helped to liberate which Nazi concentration camp; Klein cites three different right-wing blogs to support his claim. Klein did not note that McCain has made verbal gaffes as well -- given that they involve things like foreign policy and defense rather than personal anecdotes, McCain's are arguably more serious.

Klein's second article rehashes an alleged deletion of a sentence of a speech Obama gave from a transcript on Obama's website -- also plucked from a right-wing blog.

Klein's reliance on right-wing blogs for Obama-bashing story ideas is just more evidence that Klein is a biased writer with an anti-Obama agenda. 

UPDATE: Media Matters offers a compedium of McCain's gaffes on foreign policy, which WND has largely ignored.
