WND's Farah Has A Fit That Muhammad Bio Briefly Outsold A Film He Made
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Few ConWeb figures are more thin-skinned than WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah, and he proves it yet again.

Last week, WND actually devoted an article to how the WND-produced “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment" was knocked from the top spot of's top-selling "faith movie or TV show in the country" after 67 weeks by a documentary about Muhammad. 

Now, you'd think that topping a minor Amazon sales list for 67 weeks would be enough of an achievement  that WND would accept the normal course of things and abdicate gracefully. But no. Take it away, Joe:

Joseph Farah, the producer of “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” said he knew the movie couldn’t possibly occupy the No. 1 spot on forever, but he’s shocked that a “pseudo-documentary about the life of Muhammad could be become the most purchased faith movie in America just 12 years after 9/11.”

“It’s revolting,” Farah said, “not that Isaiah was knocked out of the top spot after 67 weeks, but that it could be replaced by a movie that so distorts the twisted, murderous life of a megalomaniacal hate monger, oppressor of women and genocidal fiend whose teachings inspired the worst attack on American soil in the country’s history.”

Needless to say, Farah provides no evidence that the Muhammad documentary distorts anything, let alone any evidence that he has actually watched the thing.

But  Farah's not done denigrating he has apparently never seen:

The movie was released Aug. 20 by PBS, a U.S. government-subsidized corporation.

“I’m sure all the money the federal government put into an advertising campaign for this tripe helped propel it to the top,” said Farah. “But I doubt it will have any longevity. I pray it doesn’t for the very future of our country. Whatever happened to the separation of church and state – or does that principle not apply to mosque and state.”

Farah's whining apparently paid off, because an article three days later proclaimed that "The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment" returned to the top of the list.

The funny thing, though, is that neither of the articles provides links to the WND-produced film at Amazon -- they all go to the film at WND's own online store. That's because Farah and WND make more money if you buy the film from them than if you buy it from Amazon.

The fact that Farah is hyping an Amazon sales list while discouraging you from buying from Amazon shows what a cynical promotional excercise this is.

Perhaps this dishonesty is yet another sin Farah should repent for during his silly, self-aggrandizing "9/11 Day of Prayer and Repentence."
