WND Promotes Fainting Trutherism
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily devoted an Oct. 24 article to reproducing a blog post purporting to prove that an incident at a recent speech by President Obama in which a pregnant woman standing behind the president fainted was staged.

This is not a surprise, of course -- publishing outlandish, barely substantiated conspiracy theories about Obama is what WND does. The only real surprise here is that it lifted somebody else's work instead of laundering it through in-house conspiracy-mongers like Jerome Corsi or Aaron Klein.

Still, WND has fully embraced the conspiracy, asking in an email blast to its mailing list asking, "Is there ANYTHING about this president that isn't totally phony?"

Stay classy, WND.
