WND's Cashill Signs On for Wingnut Welfare
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Looks like WorldNetDaily columnist Jack Cashill is going the wingnut welfare route.

Cashill has signed on as editor and president of the Sentinel, a website operated by the Kansas Policy Institute that claims it will hold "government and mainstream media accountable for providing complete, accurate and unbiased information so that citizens can make their own informed decisions on matters of public policy.

The Kansas Policy Institute is part of the State Policy Network, a group of right-wing state-level policy group that is heavily funded by the Koch brothers. This setup will presumably pay Cashill more than he was making as a WND columnist.

In a video, KPI president Dave Trabert identified Cashill as among the "dream team of investigative journalists" hired for the venture, gushily claiming that Cashill has "debunked false claims and conspiracies at the FBI and the CIA, and he can't wait to hold government and media accountable right here in Kansas and Missouri."

Actually, Cashill is much better known for perpetuating conspiracies than debunking them. (Also, endorsing murder and denigrating Trayvon Martin.) He's so obsessed with the words of Barack Obama that he still insists that Bill Ayers ghostwrote Obama's first book and even claims that Obama didn't write his own love letters.

This is the guy who's running Trabert's "dream team." Is it Trabert's dream to fund a website that nobody considers to be credible?
