Taitz Accused of Suborning Perjury: Will WND Report?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily uncritically promoted Larry Sinclair's claims that he did drugs and had sex with Barack Obama. Will it do the same for Sinclair's latest blockbuster allegation?

Probably not, since it involves WND's favorite sacred cow, Orly Taitz.

David Weigel details how Sinclair has filed an affidavit claiming that Taitz told him to testify at a court hearing "that three (3) member (sic) of Obama’s church were murder (sic)," adding that Taitz told him that "You testifying that three (3) members of Obama’s church were murdered will help me establish that expedited delivery is necessary because people wind up dead over Obama."

Sinclair's affidavit also contains references to "Lucas," whom Weigel says is Lucas Smith, who -- through Taitz -- filed an affidavit WND has been touting swearing that a "Kenyan birth certificate" Smith claims to have is authentic, despite the fact that it has been discredited by none other that WND itself.

If WND is willing to pretend that Smith's "Kenyan birth certificate" is real because there's an affidavit claiming it is -- as we've noted, references to the certificate being discredited in WND articles are increasingly buried when the fact that Taitz is filing discredited documents in court is the real news -- will it also accept Sinclair's allegations against Taitz as true because he filed an affidavit? After all, WND still considers Sinclair to be credible, as far as we know; to this day, it hasnever bothered to verify his Obama-related allegations, and WND has never retracted his articles, which it proudly admitted was "sleaze." (Oh, and he filed court papers, too.)

Or will WND disappear it, just like every other bit of negative information about Taitz?

UPDATE: WND surprisingly does an article -- which buries the lead and demands that people not attack Taitz, but offers no denial of Sinclair's claim. We examine it here.
