WND Lying About Chai Feldblum
Topic: WorldNetDaily

On top of playing guilt-by-assocation with Obama appointees, perpetuating falsehoods about them is something WND likes to do as well.

An Oct. 5 WND article asserted that Chai Feldblum, Obama's nominee to become commissioner for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, "praised polygamy" -- a charge repeated in an Oct. 10 article. In fact, Feldblum did no such thing, despite WND's attempt to twist words.

WND's basis for the claim is that Feldblum signed a petition that urges "Legal recognition for a wide range of relationships, households and families – regardless of kinship or conjugal status." Among the several types of relationships listed in the petition are "Households in which there is more than one conjugal partner."

WND cherry-picked this statement to assert that Feldblum, in the words of the Oct. 5 article, "signed a manifesto praising polygamy." But the petition, like Feldblum, does no such thing -- it merely lists "Households in which there is more than one conjugal partner" among other types of relationships for which legal recognition should be provided.

So, WND's key attack on Feldblum is a complete lie. Why are we not surprised?
