WND's Corsi Weakly Attacks Arpaio Critics
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Jerome Corsi has remained silent about how he and his Cold Case Posse colleague Mike Zullo completely botched the whole birth certificate coding thing, but he's still trying to discredit critics of himself and Joe Arpaio.

In an Aug. 6 WorldNetDaily article, Corsi complains:

WND has learned that Morgan Loew of KPHO-TV in Phoenix, a persistent and outspoken critic of WND and Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Maricopa County, Ariz., has joined forces with Dan Barr, the Phoenix representative of Perkins Coie, the Seattle-based law firm that continues to represent Obama on eligibility law suits. They’ve formed The First Amendment Coalition of Arizona, a free speech organization that claims it’s dedicated to obtaining transparency in government.

Loew is currently listed as the group’s president, with Barr as the registered agent legal contact for the group.

Examining the public record, Loew and Barr have established themselves not as unbiased advocates for good government, but as Democratic Party partisans willing to use Saul Alinsky-like tactics to demonize opponents. Their foes include WND, Arpaio and Republican Party presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who they view as threats to the re-election of Obama.

In fact, the First Amendment Coalition of Arizona has been around since 1982, as noted in this amicus brief. Barr is a specialist in media law who has worked with numerous media companies.

Corsi goes on to accuse both Loew and Barr of bias. Loew was targeted for committing the offense of tackling WND's behind-the-scenes role in manipulating Arpaio into doing a birther "investigation." Meanwhile, Corsi writes, "Barr has display [sic] his partisan bias in a series of anti-Arpaio and anti-Romney comments he continues to post on Twitter."

Yes, these accusations of bias are coming from Jerome Corsi, a reporter so biased he refuses to report any information that contradicts his birther conspiracies.

Corsi doesn't even bother to disprove anything either Loew or Barr had to say -- he's just attacking them for saying it.

So, yeah, that's pretty much all Corsi has at this point. His birther conspiracies are crumbling, and he's simply too dishonest to admit it.
