CNS Repeats Geller's Misleading Defense
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In a July 25 article, Patrick Goodenough highlights criticism of right-wing anti-Muslim writers whose work was cited in accused Norway terrorist attacker Anders Behring Breivik's lengthy manifesto, then cites those writers' response. He writes regarding Pam Geller:

Geller, who is referred to just once by name in the lengthy manifesto, called it “almost inconceivable that one passing reference in a 1,516-page screed would be sufficient for the Islamic/leftist machine to assign blame to yours truly, and to those of us who are working diligently to educate the people. It’s extraordinary that this is being swallowed whole by the mainstream media.”

But it's misleading to claim that Geller is "is referred to just once by name." As others have noted, the manifesto cites Geller's Atlas Shrugs blog at least 13 times.

Goodenough also repeats the defense from Daniel Pipes that "the Middle East Forum and I do not inadvertently provide guidance to terrorists" without noting the fact that that is exactly what has happened with Breivik.
