WND Still Pushing Loughner Book List Lie
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Once WorldNetDaily gets a hold of a misleading claim, it just doesn't let go, regardless of the actual facts. Here's Tim Daughtry in his Jan. 15 WND column writing about Jared Loughner:

Furthermore, the suspect listed "The Communist Manifesto" and "Mein Kampf" as favorite reading.

Marx and Hitler advocated big government, control of any speech they did not like, and gun control. Those ideas are repugnant to the tea party, but they are apple pie for liberals. So, if the suspect has any discernible political beliefs at all, he seems to have far more in common with the left than with the mainstream.

As we detailed, there are 19 other books Loughner listed at "favorite," including Ayn Rand's "We The Living." Why doesn't Daughtry want to mention that?
