The Worldnetdaily has published an article that reveals perfectly their complete lack of journalistic integrity. The article, written by someone named Steve Peacock, is entitled “Ex-Obama employer gets Kenyan contract: Prez brings home bacon in midst of Chicago corruption probe.” But the article shows no connection at all between Obama and the contract, the contract or the corruption probe or Obama and the corruption probe.
A no-bid contract to assess a $48 million Kenyan youth program has been awarded to the University of Chicago, where President Barack Obama taught constitutional law for 12 years.
This discovery coincides with the federal embezzlement indictment of Quinshaunta R. Golden, former key aide to Eric E. Whitaker, the one-time U. of C. Medical Center executive vice president and former colleague of Michelle Obama.
Whitaker is “one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends,” according to the Chicago Tribune. He is not a target of the federal investigation, and has pledged his full cooperation, according to the Tribune…
The university’s National Opinion Research Center, or NORC – which is not involved in the investigation – will receive $650,000 to assess the Yes Youth Can!, or YYC, project in Kenya, according to contracting documents that WND discovered via routine database research…
Unrelated to the NORC contract or to Yes Youth Can!, Golden was indicted for bribery, theft and fraud for allegedly embezzling “about $433,000 in state health department funds,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.
But wait, hasn’t the Worldnetdaily been pushing Joel Gilbert’s ridiculous claim that Obama isn’t Kenyan at all because his real father is Frank Marshall Davis, not Barack Obama, Sr.? Oh what tangled webs we weave when we’re desperately trying to find anything at all that makes our political enemies look bad with no regard for evidence or consistency.
