RC Radio has asked Joe Farah, the editor of World Net Daily, to comment on the troubling revelation by Tim Adams on RC radio that the affidavit that was published earlier this year was actually prepared at the behest of World Net Daily by their own attorney.
I sent the following email to Joe Farah and asked that either he or Jerome Corsi come on the show to answer questions about their questionable journalistic practices that were displayed in this incident.
I do a weekly radio show on the Obama eligibility controversy. My guest last week was Timothy Adams of Bowling Green, Kentucky. As you are aware he was a former temporary election worker in the Honolulu office in 2008. He made the rather remarkable revelation on my show that the affidavit that was featured in an article in World Net Daily was actually prepared by an attorney paid by World Net Daily. Can you confirm that? Doesn’t that go way beyond the bounds of ethical journalism? … (copy of show transcript included)
I would like to have either you or Mr. Corsi as a guest on my show to explain your organization’s involvement in the story and the production of the affidavit.
World Net Daily is also the source for many outright lies and deceptive articles on the “Birther” issue. Most notably, World Net Daily is the source of the common misconception that “Obama has spent millions to keep his records hidden”. WND ran this article that tried to push the idea that the entire amount spent by the Obama campaign for legal work on the 2008 campaign was spent on “Birther” lawsuits. It appears the Adams affidavit written by WND continues their long traditions of ignoring ethics in journalism 101.
