WND Joins the Anti-McClellan Conspiracy
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A May 29 WorldNetDaily article rehashes claims that "Billionaire George Soros, funder of elite causes and critic of most things conservative, has been linked by a blogger to former White House press secretary Scott McClellan's hate-Bush book" through his alleged involvement with the parent company of the book's publisher. But WND, like the MRC's Brent Baker before it, fails to offer any actual evidence that Soros had any direct involvement with McClellan's book, nor does it mention that the publisher, Perseus Books Group, also runs the Basic Books imprint that has published numerous books by conservative authors.

Speaking of Baker, a May 30 NewsBusters post by him rehashes some of his previous claims about the book's publisher while again failing to mention the conservative books Perseus publishes. Baker also calls McClellan's book an "anti-Bush screed" while not exhibiting any evidence that he has actually read it, let alone proving any claims in it are false.
