WND Markets The Jefferson Lies

Some readers will see what I did there with the title of this post.

WND is rolling out pre-launch publicity for David Barton’s The Jefferson Lies, including a new website and a trailer. Watch:

The new website features endorsements for the new book. I wonder if they have any idea what they are endorsing. Only one teaches history (John Swails, Oral Roberts University). I wonder if Swails was a professor at ORU when Barton played D-1 basketball there (I mean, didn’t play basketball there).

This should be fun.

Also see Thomas Kidd’s articles in World on the Barton controversy from 2012.

Earlier today, I responded to World Net Daily’s absurd contention that The Jefferson Lies fell victim to political correctness.
