WND Now Merely Misleading About Jennings
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has a history of lying about Kevin Jennings, so it looks like progress when WND merely misleads about him.

Bob Unruh does the latter in a Dec. 14 WND article, highlighting a claim that a "teacher who attended a 2000 sex seminar in Massachusetts at which public school students were taught deviant techniques such as 'fisting'"  now claims that "the project was the idea and product of the man who now serves President Obama as chief of the Department of Education's Office of Safe Schools."

What Unruh (following in the footsteps of Gateway Pundit, which first reported the claim) doesn't mention: The teacher has no actual evidence that Jennings knew of the specific content of the workshop in question.

Unruh also fails to mention that when Jennings was made aware of the workshop's contents after the fact, he criticized it.

Further, Unruh highlights claims made by the anti-gay group MassResistance without noting that the Southern Poverty Law Center considers it to be a hate group.
