WND Touts Morris' False 'Impeachable Offense' Claim
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A May 25 WorldNetDaily article by Drew Zahn uncritically promotes Dick Morris' agreement with Sean Hannity that it was an "impeachable offense" for the Obama administration to allegedly offer a job to Joe Sestak in exchange for dropping out of a Pennsylvania Senate primary race agaisnt Arlen Specter:

If a Democratic member of Congress is to be believed, there's someone in the Obama administration who has committed a crime – and if the president knew about it, analysts say it could be grounds for impeachment.

At no point does Zahn explain that not only is this not unusual -- not only has Karl Rove bargained with candidates to move them out of races to clear the way for the Bush White House's preferred candidates, the Reagan administration reportedly offered a job to a California senator in exchange for not seeking re-election -- legal experts (of which Morris is not one) have explained that the alleged behavior regarding Sestak is not illegal, let alone an "impeachable offense."

But reporting the truth is not WorldNetDaily's purpose -- destroying Obama at any cost is.
