WND Also Ignores Death of Filegate
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Last week we noted that the Clinton conspiracy-mongers at the Media Research Center failed to acknowledge the death of the "Filegate" case. Another Clinton-obsessed ConWeb component has ignored it too: WorldNetDaily.

WND was clinging to Filegate -- the word appears in 189 articles in the WND archive -- as late as last year, when it promoted Larry Klayman's efforts to "grill" Hillary Clinton "over her handling of confidential FBI files." WND quoted Klayman as saying, "We are confident that Judge [Royce] Lamberth will now have to finally order the deposition."

Lamberth is the very same judge who tossed the lawsuit once and for all, saying: "The plaintiffs, he wrote, "after ample opportunity . . . have not produced any evidence of the far-reaching conspiracy that sought to use intimate details from FBI files for political assassinations that they alleged. The only thing that they have demonstrated is that this unfortunate episode -- about which they do have cause to complain -- was exactly what the defendants claimed: nothing more than a bureaucratic snafu." 

As recently as Feb. 18, Bob Unruh was still touting Klayman's efforts to depose Clinton. But the fact that the entire lawsuit has been tossed out of court and derided as specious by the judge has yet to find a home at WND.
