WND Still Fradulently Peddling David Barton's Discredited Book
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Here's another thing Joseph Farah should repent for on his self-aggrandizing little "Day of Prayer and Repetence": Telling lies to sell a discredited book.

We documented in May when WND began aggressively selling David Barton's book "The Jefferson Lies," falsely claiming that the book is "so hot and so politically incorrect, the publisher pulled it from the shelves of every bookstore in America" when, in fact, it was pulled because it was discredited. Well, the lies haven't stopped -- WND has promoted the book again, recycling the lie that it was pulled because it was "so hot and so politically incorrect" and offering it for "only $4.95 – a huge $18 discount off the normal $22.99 price." That makes it about $4.95 more than it's worth.

WND once against states that "the WND Superstore has plenty of copies and is making them available to you so you can know the truth about one of America’s greatest founding fathers." Given that it was pulled from bookstores, the publisher has disowned it, and Barton himself purchased 17,000 copies of the book, it seems all but certain that WND is getting its copies from Barton himself.

The fact that WND is still telling lies to sell a discredited book is evidence that Farah has not done what he demands others do: humble himself before God and turn from his wicked ways.
