Why Is ABC Quoting Jerome Corsi?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Media Matters' Todd Gregory points out that an article on "birth tourism" -- the purported efforts by pregnant foreign women to give birth in the United States so their children will be U.S. citizens -- uncritically quotes WorldNetDaily's Jerome Corsi as if he were an authority on the topic. Apparently, all Corsi has done is devote an issue of his WND "Red Alert" newsletter to the subject.

As we've detailed, Corsi has a history of false and misleading statements on a variety of issues (not to mention a fondness for forged documents), so the idea that ABC would treat him as a credible source is laughable.
