WND and Richard Poe: Together Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily serves up self-serving disingenuousness in the service of trying to make a buck with a July 6 article by Richard Poe.

The article is billed as "an eye-opening sneak preview of New York Times best-selling author Richard Poe's revealing book, 'Hillary's Secret War.'" But nowhere is it mentioned that Poe's book was published more than a year ago; it's hard to "preview" something that's been publicly available for quite some time. ConWebWatch noted the book upon its release; read the correspondence between Poe and I regarding it here.

The rest of the article is Poe's self-promotion and conspiracy theorizing about Hillary Clinton, designed to capitalize on Edward Klein's discredited "The Truth About Hillary." So wacky are his assertions that his employer has backed away from them, as the tagline at the end of the article attests:

Richard Poe is the investigative editor of David Horowitz's Center for the Study of Popular Culture, as well as managing editor of Horowitz's group blog Moonbat Central. The views expressed in Poe's book, "Hillary's Secret War," are the author's own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture.

How extreme does your anti-Clinton rhetoric have to be that even David Horowitz doesn't want to associate his organization with it?
