WND Doesn't Mention Its History of Obama Birtherism In Cruz Birther Article
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In a Nov. 26 WorldNetDaily article, Cheryl Chumley writes about how Florida congressman Alan Grayson plans to "challenge Sen. Ted Cruz’s citizenship via a formal lawsuit if the Texan wins the GOP nomination for the White House" because he was born in Canada.

Chumley doesn't mention, however, the fact that her employer virulently attacked President Obama's "eligiblity" to be president or explain why WND won't aggressively pursue the issue with Cruz like it did Obama.

As we've documented, WND has steadfastly and hypocritically refused to make an issue of Cruz's eligiblity despite the fact that Cruz is, under WND's preferred yet never-court-endorsed definition of "natural born citizen," Cruz is even more ineligible that Obama because, unlike Obama, Cruz was born outside the U.S. -- thus demonstrationg that WND never cared about the Constitution and cared only about smearing Obama.

The closest Chumley gets to recognizing this is quoting radio host Alan Colmes noting that "people who had a problem with … Obama’s birth certificate don’t have a problem with Ted Cruz, who literally was born in another country." But, presumably on orders from WND's higher-ups, she takes it no further.

WND owes a clear explanation to its readers for its indisputable birther double standard. Will it ever provide one?
