WND's Corsi Is Still Traveling On The Romney Press Plane
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It's almost kinda cute how Jerome Corsi is pretending to be a real reporter.

In an Oct. 26 WorldNetDaily article, Corsi uses his perch on the Mitt Romney press plane -- where he has been hanging out for the past week or so --  to bash President Obama and peddle more Ronald Kessler-esque Romney-fluffing. He lovingly describes how the crowds he claims are turning out for Romney's rallies:

On Tuesday, Romney drew a crowd the Secret Service put at 12,500 – the maximum fire marshals would allow – at the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo., north of Denver.

People of all ages began arriving at noon, ready to make the high-altitude climb from the facility’s many parking lots to the tiered seats of the famed outdoor music venue.

Romney campaign workers handed out red, blue, yellow and white T-shirts to those seated in the center of the audience in a pattern designed to form the logo on the Colorado flag.

The applause for Romney and Ryan in the amphitheater was thundering as the candidates promised supporters that this year the Republican ticket would beat Obama in Colorado, something McCain failed to do in 2008.

By contrast, according to Corsi, Obama is drawing only "modest crowds" while he focuses on "causes of the far left that are calculated to motivate the Democratic Party’s base in an apparent decision to deemphasize the large mass of independent voters to Romney."

Corsi has been filing more "Traveling with the Romney campaign" datelines in the past few days:

An Oct. 25 article enthuses about how Romney has been attracting "enthusiastic, overflow crowds in Ohio from Cincinnati in the south to Toledo on Lake Erie" and features an interview with Romney campaign manager Scott Jennings.

An Oct. 26 article fawns over Romney's "major policy address" that day, in which he "presented his vision for achieving genuine economic growth in the next four years, while charging Barack Obama with a record of failure in his stewardship of the economy."

An Oct. 27 article keeps up the Romney cheerleading, literally:

“Ten more days!” the crowds at the Florida Romney rallies chanted today, ready to count off the days until Barack Obama is defeated and President-elect Mitt Romney begins preparing for a new administration in the White House.

Romney spoke to three large overflow crowds, delivering a positive message of real economic recovery and jobs brought on by a renewed faith in the private enterprise system.

Meanwhile, Corsi did take time out while traveling on the Romney press plane to publish an article citing the discredited Joel Gilbert to claim that Obama had a nose job. Surprisingly, Corsi appears not to have asked Scott Jennings about that.
