Sometimes I visit Orly’s web site or follow a link from a visitor here to WorldNetDaily and I see an item and just shake my head at the silliness.When I do that, you don’t see an article here because I don’t think that it’s news. To me, things that lack validity, are total nonsense, and are going nowhere are not news. (A great example of what I think is “not news” is this people’s grand jury nonsense.)
But then I get an email from someone saying: “Hey Doc, did you see so and so? What’s up with that?” and then I realize that it’s news from some people’s point of view.
The two “not news” items du jour are the WorldNetDaily article on Kerchner v. Obama suggesting that the court is friendly to Kerchner’s case or thinks that is important. Nothing the court says implies this. And WND suggested that the court was soliciting letters from concerned citizens, due in by today. They aren’t.
The other is the auctioning off on eBay of a purported Kenyan Birth Certificate for Barack Obama, now listed as a “dissertation” after eBay pulled previous listings. Scam? or publicity stunt? One or the other, but not news.
