In this article by Aaron Klein, the Worldnutdaily’s boy wonder in Jerusalem, we see another archetypal example of WND’s brand of “journalism.” The headline reads “Anti-NSA reporter tied to Soros-funded radical left.” It’s the standard issue game of “Six degrees of George Soros.”
London Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald, who broke the story exposing the National Security Agency’s collection of the telephone records of millions of U.S. Verizon customers, founded a progressive activist coalition that encompasses a who’s who of the George Soros-funded radical left…
In 2008, Greenwald and liberal blogger Jane Hamsher co-founded the group Accountability Now, a political action committee described by the New York Times as seeking “to push the Democratic Party further to the left.”
The press release published by the political action committee announced the members of the Accountability Now coalition: MoveOn.org, Color Of Change, SEIU, the Daily Kos blog, Howard Dean’s Democracy for America and the communist-oriented United Steelworkers of America, among others.
Soros is a primary donor to MoveOn.org as is the Soros-Funded Tides Foundation.
And it goes on and on like that. Wow, Glenn Greenwald is a liberal? Shocking. Just shocking. You sure blew the lid off that story, WND. Of course, there isn’t anything in the article that even mentions the actual story Greenwald broke on the NSA. Indeed, Joseph Farah and other WND writers have been talking up those revelations and have come out strongly against the NSA’s data mining program. I guess that means they’re now closely tied to George Soros too.
It’s just another example of the argumentum ad labelum. If they can apply the label “liberal” to someone or some claim, they think it’s been falsified. But it’s all the more amusing when they attempt to do this while agreeing with the person they’re applying the label to.
