Memo to WingNut Daily

You keep using that word “responsibility”.  I do not think it means what you think it means:

WorldNetDaily has put out a news release on its, uh, “scoop” about the forged “Kenyan birth certificate” that Orly Taitz has filed in court as proof of the president’s foreign ties. WND, says editor-in-chief Joseph Farah, is “working with document experts in the U.S. and with sources in Kenya” to verify the document. Which experts? Which sources? Don’t ask. Listen to Farah:

“Our goal, as always, is to seek the truth. This is not our document. It is evidence that has (sic) presented in a high-profile court case. And, thus, I believe we had a journalistic responsibility to publish it — just as I think every other news organization does.”

The “evidence” would be the fake “Kenyan Birth Certificate” that’s been circulating around the internet, prompting snickers and outright gales of laughter from almost everyone who sees it:

wnd-batshit-birthers

But maybe he’s right: Wingnut Daily does have a journalistic responsibility — to ensure that their content is never mistaken for anything even remotely resembling  “reality”.  And WND’s continuing commitment to crackpot conspiracy theories, fetus fetishizing proselytization and fine films like  “The Movie Obama Doesn’t Want You To See” (for the lowlow price of just $17.99) more than live up to that responsibility.

UPDATE: The thunder from down under!

    I looked at an Orly Taitz video and read about her.

    Where does this type of person come from.
    She can’t come out with a comprehensible sentence.
    She can’t stick to a train of thought.
    She can’t speak English well.
    And she’s a dentist and a lawyer and
    is involved in real estate!

    She’s spread thinner than mayo on the soup
    kitchen sandwiches!

    One of her sites is dangerous to computers.
    My software warned me against visiting:

    http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/blog1/

    It contains malware and other bad things.

    And we’re supposed to take her seriously?

    Why does she remind me of the Gabor sisters?

    Best line about Orly:

    Is Orly Taitz a new Sasha Baron Cohen character?

  3. 3 hemmingforddogblog Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 1:58 am

    or how about Natasha Baron Cohen. This woman is Batshit Crazy! What entertainment value!

    (I can’t believe the MSM is actually giving her the time of day.)

    And she’s a dentist and a lawyer and
    is involved in real estate!

    It gets better. Her “law school” is a diploma mill whose “degrees” are only worth the paper they’re printed on in that Satanic bastion of liberalism, California.

    So she’s a lawyer like how I’m a docter? 😉

    Heh: check out the bottom left corner of the birth certificate where it says “Republic of Kenya”. The Republic of Kenya did not exist until December of 1963, when it gained independence from Britain. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_heads_of_state_of_Kenya

    (h/t to Mudflats.)

    sorry, to correct, and as your links say anyways: it was not declared a Republic till December of 1964, one year after its independence – according to reputable and independent sources.

    So, at least they did half of their homework in trying to get this forgery right.

  8. 8 Phatbiker Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 1:18 pm

    Bet the next thing they’ll try is bribe some down on his luck Kenyan doctor to say he delivered Obama.

  9. 9 JJ Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 6:07 pm

    Torontonian – I don’t get how she gets to be a dentist and a lawyer. What’s the connection? The mouth, I guess.

  10. 10 JJ Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    SQ – I think the MSM is only paying attention to her because the birthers have gotten the ear of the GOP (who’ve become a parody of themselves). If the GOP wasn’t listening to them, they’d get about as much attention as Troofers did.

    JAB – A diploma mill, why am I not surprised. What’s with right-wingers and these diploma mills — are they too lazy to do the work necessary to get real diplomas?

  12. 12 JJ Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 6:10 pm

    Dr. Prole – She’s a loyer 😉

  13. 13 JJ Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 6:12 pm

    brebis – Yeah, this one (the third one, I think) has been pretty totally debunked. It’s about time for a 4th one to roll in…

  14. 14 JJ Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 6:13 pm

    phatbiker – Hah! I bet they’re trying to track one down even as we speak. Hahahahaha!

  15. 15 J. A. Baker Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 7:35 pm

    A diploma mill, why am I not surprised.

    Indeed. Isn’t Chuckles McDoofus a product of a diploma mill?

  16. 16 fairlane Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 7:16 am

    Doesn’t matter if he’s an American citizen or not.

    According to WND, he may be the Anti-Christ, so, either way, we’re fucked.

  17. 17 JJ Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    JAB – Yes, Chuckles and a few of his buddies are “docters”. 🙄

  18. 18 JJ Thursday, August 6, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    fairlane – The anti-christ thing is a backup story in case the kenyan thing doesn’t pan out. If the anti-christ thing doesn’t pan out, the next thing will be… ever see Obama and Osama bin Laden in the same place at the same time? No??? 😯
