It was with great reluctance that I wrote an email to my former employer this morning, letting them know that WorldNetDaily is contemplating some sort of a negative article about me and them. This was mentioned at a press conference held in a conference room they rented at the National Press Club, attended by a couple of reporters. There’s a detailed report on the press conference on the ConWebWatch website. Jerome Corsi revealed in this exchange:
I pointed out to Corsi that, his and Farah’s assertions to the contrary, there are people who will defend the authenticity of the PDF birth certificate or at least rebut its attackers, such as Dr. Conspiracy’s detailed rebuttal of the Ken Vogt analysis that Corsi devoted three WND articles to. Corsi’s response was a curious one: After calling Dr. Conspiracy “one of my favorites,” Corsi said, ‘I’ll be writing about Dr. Conspiracy in the next few days. I’ll be exposing his background, his entire credentials, his involvement with his company. I’ve got a detailed — I just haven’t had time to write it up.”
When I asked Corsi why he’s personally attacking his critics by digging into their backgrounds, Corsi suddenly softened his tone: “I’m sorry, I said I would evaluate his credentials. It’s not a personal attack, but we’re going to evaluate his credentials in his point-by-point.”
I had an email exchange with Dr. Corsi this morning in which I expressed concerns that if he used some of the false KenyanBornObamAcorn material, the article might be defamatory. I pointed him to my article detailing mistakes in her presentation on the Andrea Shea King Internet radio program. If he goes ahead and repeats any of that material, it will show a willful disregard for the truth.
If Dr. Corsi’s concerns are solely with my credentials, then I have no problem; I fairly stated them with a care not to overstate the case. I have always considered myself a profoundly uninteresting person.
