WND Not Even Bothering To Do Real Birther Reporting Anymore
Topic: WorldNetDaily

How much does WorldNetDaily not want to cover birther stories involving people other than Barack Obama? It's not even assigning reporters to write about it anymore.

The last bylined birther-related story at WND was a Feb. 12 article by Douglas Ernst on Donald Trump's threats to file a lawsuit challenging Trump's eligibility. It's a relatively balanced article -- not somsething that happened when WND covered the issue of Obama's eligibility.

Since then, WND has simply copied-and-pasted (read: stolen) the works of others in reporting on new birther issues:

  • A Feb. 18 article on a Cruz birther case heading to court was stolen from CNN.
  • A Feb. 22 article on Trump now going after Marco Rubio's eligibility was stolen from Politico.

By contrast, WND assigned reporter Paul Bremmer to cover Glenn Beck's declaration that he's fasting to benefit Cruz's campaign. Priorities!
