WND Piles One Unverifiable Claim On Top Of Another
Topic: Western Journalism Center

"Reza Kahlili" has yet another unverifiable (and probably false) claim at WorldNetDaily:

Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, personally selected Hassan Rouhani to win Friday’s presidential election even before he received the majority of the votes cast, according to a former Revolutionary Guard intelligence analyst who has defected from Iran.

Naturally, it's another anonymous, untraceable source "Kahlili" is using, and, therefore, is highly suspect.

Surprisingly, this is not the most objectionable thing about this article -- that would be how WND promoted it on its front page.




Never mind the fact that 1) WND offers no credible evidence of fraud in Obama's re-election, let alone fraud of the kind Kahlili alleges took place in Iran, and 2) Obama isn't even mentioned in Kahlili's article, let alone any allegations of fraud purportedly involving Obama.

There are many reasons nobody believes WND, and this is just one of them.
