RC Radio Asks WND to Comment on Troubling Revelation from Tim Adams

Joe Farah
RC Radio has asked Joe Farah, the editor of World Net Daily, to comment on the troubling revelation by Tim Adams on RC radio  that the affidavit that was published earlier this year was actually prepared at the behest of World Net Daily by their own attorney.

I sent the following email to Joe Farah and asked that either he or Jerome Corsi come on the show to answer questions about their questionable journalistic practices that were displayed in this incident.

Mr. Farah:

I do a weekly radio show on the Obama eligibility controversy. My guest last week was Timothy Adams of Bowling Green, Kentucky. As you are aware he was a former temporary election worker in the Honolulu office in 2008. He made the rather remarkable revelation on my show that the affidavit that was featured in an article in World Net Daily was actually prepared by an attorney paid by World Net Daily. Can you confirm that? Doesn't that go way beyond the bounds of ethical journalism? ... (copy of show transcript included)

I would like to have either you or Mr. Corsi as a guest on my show to explain your organization's involvement in the story and the production of the affidavit.

World Net Daily is also the source for many outright lies and deceptive articles on the "Birther" issue. Most notably, World Net Daily is the source of the common misconception that "Obama has spent millions to keep his records hidden". WND ran this article that tried to push the idea that the entire amount spent by the Obama campaign for legal work on the 2008 campaign was spent on "Birther" lawsuits. It appears the Adams affidavit written by WND continues their long traditions of ignoring ethics in journalism 101.


  1. Like we all know where thia s is going. Trying to land him is like catching greased hog. He likes to be the little slickie boy. A bit too slimy to pin down.

  2. There is a lot of grease on that comb over. I will admit that.

  3. Farah can't make it, but his mustache will be glad to answer questions.

    Can you imagine if Farrah's mustache joined forces with Trump's hair? We'd be doomed!

  4. Thanks, Obsolete. I will having nightmares for weeks now!

  5. Hawaii elections clerk: Obama 'caught fibbing'
    But will president be 'frog-marched from office' over eligibility issue?

    The former Hawaii elections official who maintains there's no long-form birth certificate for Barack Obama in the Aloha State is now saying the president and his aides have been "caught fibbing" about Obama's background, and the "embarrassing" situation is making it difficult to fess up to the truth.

    Tim Adams, who was senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu during the 2008 campaign, made the statements in a two-hour interview with a group looking to disprove claims made by so-called birthers, those challenging Obama's legal qualification to be president

  6. Nice spin job by the masters of spin. They seem to have forgotten to mention that they paid for the affidavit.

    I wonder if World Net Daily agrees with Adams, aka "Quebert", on Topix who signs all his comments with "And also, I think, that America should be destroyed."?
