WND Buys Into Bogus Breitbart Claim
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Sept. 29 WorldNetDaily article hypes a video, promoted by Andrew Breitbart's video site, that claims to "shows leaders of a Chicago-based community organizing group called the Gamaliel Foundation held a rally shortly after President Obama's election and 'prayed' to him, seeking his intervention in their difficulties."

The problem? It's clear that nobody's "praying" to Obama.

Breitbart himself has walked the claim back, appending an editor's note that acknowledges the likelihood that the group is praying to God rather than Obama -- though not before numerous members of the right-wing media joined WND in hyping it. 

WND has yet to acknowledge Breitbart's walkback.
