Another Empty Article from Aaron Klein
Topic: WorldNetDaily

We've detailed how WorldNetDaily relies on anonymous claims to attack the Obama administration -- even granting anonymity to terrorists. He does so again in an Oct. 21 article claiming that "some Mideast leaders are considering hardening their positions against the U.S., believing they may extract more concessions from a conciliatory Obama administration."

There is not a single named, on-the-record source in Klein's article. He cites:

  • "a Palestinian Authority official"
  • 'Egyptian and Palestinian diplomatic sources"
  • "A top official from Syria's Ministry of Information"

This runs counter to WND editor Joseph Farah's assertion that "Aaron Klein doesn't use anonymous sources" and Farah's own dismissal of anonymous sources as "usually quotes made up out of whole cloth to help make the story read better."
