CNS Standing By Its False Story (So Far)

Writing a story that's utterly false appears not to be an impediment to journalism at

As we've detailed, a Jan. 14 article by Matt Cover attempting to attack TSA nominee Erroll Southers for purportedly equating Christians with terrorists falsely portrays Southers' use of "Christian identity" as a generic phrase describing all Christians. In fact, context shows that Southers is referring to Christian Identity, an extremist sect which, according to the Anti-Defamation League, is "virulently racist and anti-Semitic beliefs" and is tied to several domestic terrorists. 

So far, as of 3 p.m. ET, CNS has not only not corrected or withdrawn the article,  it's promoting the article on its website as the lead story:

CNS, it appears, is not one to let facts get in the way of a good smear. Too bad for them that actual journalism is supposed to involve truth.
