WND Orly Taitz Whitewash Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In his Jan. 29 WorldNetDaily column, Joseph Farah asserts that media outlets portraying those that foment controversy over Barack Obama's eligibility for the presidency as "just unfounded doubts propagated by a 'birther movement'" are engaging in "propaganda." Farah does himself no favors by engaging in his own propaganda campaign that, as we have documented, is much more dishonest than the reporting from non-birther outlets.

Another example of WND's dishonest propaganda comes in the form of a Jan. 29 article by Bob Unruh, in which he touts Orly Taitz's latest filing. As per Slantie-winning WND practice, Unruh fails to disclose to WND readers Taitz's long history of shoddy lawyering in the case -- from botched filings to the $20,000 fine for filing frivolous claims to the allegations of suborning perjury.

Unruh, unsurprisingly, allows misleading claims and falsehoods by Taitz to parade as fact. He quotes Taitz asserting that Kenyan prime minister Raila Odinga is "Obama's first cousin" -- a claim that has been discredited.

In yet another effort to discredit the birth certificate Obama has released -- which even Farah concedes is authentic -- Unruh faithfully reports Taitz's claim that the state of Hawaii "allows registration of births out of state" without offering any evidence that any out-of-state birth has been registered in Hawaii as an in-state birth.

Then again, Unruh can't tell the truth -- it would derail WND's cash machine.
