Another Fine Example of Worldnetdaily ‘Journalism’

Worldnetdaily founder Joseph Farah recently accused someone else of being an “activist disguised as a journalist,” which makes articles like this one all the more amusing and ironic. It’s one reporter from WND quoting another reporter from WND to support a vague and unsupported conclusion — and, of course, another chance to promote a book one of those reporters is selling, which WND gets a piece of.

A recent Democratic National Committee email to supporters, for example, attempted to blackball four Republican congressmen for daring to suggest President Obama could be impeached for repeated violations of the Constitution.

“Republicans are actually excited about the idea,” the email scoffed. “Show these Republicans they are way, way off-base.”

But the email may have gotten more attention than the DNC intended.

Highlighted by WND, the Daily Caller, Fox News and the Drudge Report, the email has now been seen by tens of millions of Americans.

It was also noticed by Aaron Klein, WND senior staff reporter, radio host and New York Times bestselling author of “Impeachable Offenses: The Case for Removing Barack Obama from Office.”

“The White House and progressive machine clearly have failed in their attempt to paint the impeachment movement as fringe and out of touch with reality,” Klein told WND. “The general American public views with increasing concern Obama’s illicit extension of executive authority, his repeated bypassing of Congress and the many serious scandals that have plagued this administration from Fast and Furious through Benghazi through the IRS fiasco and now Obamacare.

“The time has come,” Klein said, “for the country and our elected representatives to have a serious discussion about the constitutional ramifications of Obama’s highly questionable actions.

Read the definitive case for removing Barack Obama from office in “Impeachable Offenses” by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.

And that last line is, of course, a link to the book’s sales page, from which the Worldnetdaily profits. It’s not news, it’s wingnut “journalism.”

    It’s adverlism.

    They have to try to sell as many books as possible before November, 2016.

    After that, this so-called book will be worth even less than it already is.

    …and truthiness!

    Does WND ever do a headline story that isn’t connected to some right-wing wet-dream book?

    18 hours ago – NUN: SLAIN CHRISTIANS’ BLOOD DRAINED AND SOLD. Vials from beheading victims ‘going for $100,000′. author-image JEROME R. CORSI … Sister Hatune Dogan told WND in a Skype interview that members of the …

    This is tame compared to the latest.

    Did you know that Syrian Moslems are capturing xians, beheading them, collecting their blood, and using the blood is Moslem rituals?

    The source is Worldnut Daily and Jerome Corsi, a pathological liar. I very much doubt that anything like this happened. It’s just the old blood libel being transferred from the Jews to the Moslems.

    BTW, the link above is to a way out there lunatic fringe site. I wouldn’t click on it myself. The primary souce is Corsi and WND. I won’t click on them either.

    Obama’s illicit extension of executive authority, his repeated bypassing of Congress and the many serious scandals that have plagued this administration from Fast and Furious through Benghazi through the IRS fiasco and now Obamacare.

    Ok first how has Obama extended executive authority and bypassed congress, second how is Obamacare a scandal – the word doesn’t mean anything Joe Farah dislikes, or does it?

  • matty1

    @5 I’m afraid I did read that story on WND and the source is actually a Turkish born German nun called Sister Hatune Dogan. I can’t find much about her in English but the most relevant fact may be that she works with Walid Shoebat the fake ex-terrorist on what sounds like a scam raising funds for persecuted Christians through criticising rival groups and obscuring how the money is actually spent (see http://barthsnotes.com/2013/12/31/shoebat-announces-partnership-with-siste-hatune-dogan/)

    @Raven:

    I wish it were true and that it was Corsi’s blood that had been collected.

  • had3

    They should vote for more committed republicans for the house to help make the impeachment a possibility. As a matter of fact, they should make that the primary issue in the GOP primaries for the elections this year. I mean, are they committed or just talking?

  • Nemo

    Could they maybe bother listing a single impeachable offense, or do I have to read the book to find out what they think he’s done?

  • Nemo

    Oh, never mind, they do have a pathetic list of sorts at the end of the linked article.

  • matty1

    The offences include

    The president’s personal role in the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack, with new evidence regarding what was transpiring at the U.S. mission prior to the assault – arguably impeachable activities in and of themselves.

    Do they think Obama personally took part in the attack?

  • gshelley

    I think they think he personally decided not to mount a rescue mission. Or possibly that he personally ordered the staff to go and lie about what they knew about the causes and timeline

  • Moon Jaguar

    I submit the term journaltisement.

  • Baktru

    Wait. Fast and Furious? What the hell is that about?

    I mean it was a pretty mediocre set of movies but…

    Don’t get it. Going Google.
