Obama Hate Central Watch: WND Still Hiding Truth on Birth Certificate
Topic: WorldNetDaily

With all the recent back-and-forth targeting Joseph Farah's refusal to admit the truth about WorldNetDaily's coverage of the Obama birth certificate non-controversy, you'd think that WND from now on would admit the simple fact that last August, WND declared the birth certificate released by Obama's campaign to be authentic.

Well, not so much.

A Jan. 18 WND article by Bob Unruh fails to acknowledge that simple fact of WND's own reporting, still pretending that there are legitimate questions about Obama's "eligibility." Unruh could have explained why WND no longer stands by its earlier reporting, as Farah has hinted is the case, but he doesn't do that either.

Instead, Unruh uncritically repeats all previous claims by Obama foes regarding his eligibility without permitting anyone to respond to them. No evidence is offered that the certificate released by Obama's campaign -- which, points out, "has all the elements the State Department requires for proving citizenship to obtain a U.S. passport" -- is insufficient proof his eligibility to be president.

But as we've detailed, WND isn't interested in facts regarding Obama, especially about the birth certificate; it only wants to destroy him.
