WND Sidesteps Question of Cruz's Eligibility To Be President
Topic: WorldNetDaily

You'd think that with all it has written about Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, WorldNetDaily would be able to make a declarative snap judgment about the eligibility of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. But it seems WND will punt on the question for now.

An unbylined Aug. 14 WND article highlights how CNN "suddenly is concerned about whether Republican Sen. Ted Cruz would qualify for the Oval Office." After noting that Cruz "was born in Canada to a U.S. citizen mother and a Cuban father," WND adds:

Cruz himself says he qualifies as a natural-born citizen because he’s a citizen by birth.

But those opinions assume that the authors of the Constitution used the terms citizen and natural-born citizen interchangeably.

But rather than further examining the question of Cruz's eligibility, WND spends the rest of the lengthy article rehashing discredited claims about Obama's "eligibility" -- even though that's not what the story's about.

Is WND going to apply a different standard to Cruz's eligibility than it has to Obama's? It seems that way.
