WorldNetDaily: We Had ‘Journalistic Responsibility’ to Post Forged Document
WorldNetDaily has put out a news release on its, uh, “scoop” about the forged “Kenyan birth certificate” that Orly Taitz has filed in court as proof of the president’s foreign ties. WND, says editor-in-chief Joseph Farah, is “working with document experts in the U.S. and with sources in Kenya” to verify the document. Which experts? Which sources? Don’t ask. Listen to Farah:
Our goal, as always, is to seek the truth. This is not our document. It is evidence that has (sic) presented in a high-profile court case. And, thus, I believe we had a journalistic responsibility to publish it — just as I think every other news organization does.
WND has a deeply amusing idea of what “journalism” is supposed to be.
