More Details of WND-Orly Taitz Relationship Emerge
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've detailed WorldNetDaily's silence about its relationship with Obama birth certificate obsessive Orly Taitz, including supplying her with a copy of WND's secretive anti-Obama petition to present to Chief Justice John Roberts. More evidence of this relationship shows up in a March 23 post on Taitz's Defend Our Freedoms website:

Today, Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq; or as nicknamed by our volunteer Judith, our Lady Liberty!, was in Washington DC with WorldNetDaily’s Joseph Farah. Among their tasks in DC was visits to the Department of Justice and to the Supreme Court. It has been learned, proven, and now documented that many of the signed receipt documents send in since December have not been received. Dr. Taitz, or our Lady Liberty, will have a full detailed account for everyone soon.

Thank you Joseph Farah for documenting this historic day!

The claim that Taitz was "with WorldNetDaily's Joseph Farah" indicates that Farah had a hand in planning Taitz's trip and the meetings she attended,  Farah has not discussed this visit with Taitz, or his apparent squiring of her around Washington. 

A week before, Farah wrote a column effusively praising Taitz:

I have to tell you, this lady is rapidly becoming one of my heroes.


Personally, I'm ready to support Orly Taitz for whatever office she seeks.

I'm ready to give her any support she needs to adjudicate this issue.

Apparently, such support includes violating journalistic ethics by maintaining a close relationship with a person they're supposed to be reporting about without disclosing that relationship to his readers.

In WND's mission statement, Farah declares, "the world has a right to know." Farah seems to have decided that the world has no right whatsoever to know about his relationship with a source.

We've added this information to our earlier article about the questions WND has refused to answer about Taitz and the birth certificate.
