Non-Shocker: WND Treats Unverified Claim As Real
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Facts, schmacts -- WorldNetDaily don't need no stinkin' facts to do a story. (See Sinclair, Larry, and birth certificate, Kenyan.)

So WND was incredibly eager to jump on a claim that some Egyptian official is claiming that President Obama told him that he is a Muslim, with Bob Unruh -- WND's king of biased reporting -- pounding out a story treating the claim as if it was real.

It's not until the 15th paragraph that Unruh hints there may be a problem: "There was no independent verification of the statement."

Even the right-wing Hot Air proceded with caution on the story, pointing out that the video supplied "will not confirm that Barack Obama made the statements claimed."

WND and Unruh don't need no stinkin' verification. They hate Obama so much, they no longer care about the truth (if they ever did).They will spread every smear and lie about him because they can.
