Gutless Aaron Klein Still Ignoring Us
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily loves to whine when it or one of its writers is attacked by what it considers an easy target (as we found out). It doesn't like to get into fights with people who fight back with facts (as WND subsequently learned about us).

So we have a Nov. 3 WND article complaining that the conservative-leaning UK Telegraph called anti-Obama screed author Aaron Klein a "polemical journalist based in Jerusalem." WND declared this to be a "slam."

The newspaper claims that Klein "launched the idea of Obama as Manchurian candidate, a hollow figure promoted by the 'anti American fringe nexus instrumental in building his political career,' and the 'top Czars with Communist links' in the White House, who include Obama's political strategist and former campaign manager David Axlerod."

Klein countered, "The book boasts almost 900 footnotes and is the most exhaustive journalistic investigation ever performed into Obama and his background. It is not an 'Obama-hating' work. In fact, it is an academic tome."

Still, WND was proud that the Telegraph prounounced Klein's book among the "heavyweight champions" of the "no less than 46 'hate Obama' books published so far."

Of course, the idea that Klein's book is "an academic tome" is laughable. We should know -- we read it and exposed its bias, misleading claims and conspiracy-mongering.

But Klein won't criticize us. After all, we work in facts, and WND and Klein don't dare get involved with trying to rebut facts.

WND and Klein are content to take potshots at those it considers inferior. They won't respond to us, which is evidence of their respect for us and our command of the facts.
