WND Treats Supermarket Tabloid's Birther Claims As Credible
Topic: WorldNetDaily

This is the state of birtherism at WorldNetDaily these days -- it's thrilled that a second-rate supermarket tabloid touts its birther crap.

A Sept. 4 WND article by Drew Zahn praises how "The grocery-line tabloid Globe has made a front-page headline out of Obama's eligibility," hyping how "the published reports of 20 experts with established credentials who conducted forensic examination of the computer PDF file published on the White House website and the Xerox copies of the Obama birth certificate handed out by the White House to the press during an April 27, 2011, press conference." But as even WND's own Jerome Corsi has admitted, none of WND's so-called "experts" are certified forensic document examiners, since they aren't so dumb, as WND apparently is, to treat a PDF file as an original document.

Zahn also referenced "Doug Vogt, a scanner expert who has analyzed the Obama birth certificate documents released by the White House and who has already filed a criminal complaint with the FBI, charging the document is 'created forgery,' to no avail," without mention that Vogt's assertions have been discredited.

Of course, when WND is treating second-rate supermarket tabloid reports as credible, there's little reason to trust anythingelse WND has to say, either.
