WorldNetDaily founder refers to "attempted media lynching of Jerry Corsi"

WorldNetDaily.com founder Joseph Farah asserted that Jerome Corsi was the target of an "attempted media lynching" for his book The Obama Nation and urged readers who were "angry" about it to "[b]uy extra copies of his book and distribute them to your friends."

In his August 15 column, WorldNetDaily.com founder, editor, and CEO Joseph Farah called the criticism that WND staff reporter Jerome Corsi has received for his new book an "attempted media lynching." Farah directed readers who were "angry about the attempted media lynching of Jerry Corsi" to buy the book, The Obama Nation: Leftist Politics and the Cult of Personality (Threshold Editions, August 2008). He wrote: "Buy Corsi's book. Buy extra copies of his book and distribute them to your friends. Keep this book on the best-sellers list right through the Nov. 4 election. Buy an autographed copy or two from WND, the news agency that employs him full-time."

Farah's directive to "Buy Corsi's book" was hyperlinked to a page on WND's "Shop" website selling Corsi's book.

From Farah's August 15 column, headlined "I stand with Jerry Corsi":

Isn't it interesting how Jerome Corsi has received more scrutiny from the Big Media in the last 24 hours than Barack Obama has received in his entire political career?

Has Jerry Corsi said things and written things in his life that he regrets? Undoubtedly. But he is not running for president of the United States. He is simply a courageous, dedicated journalist -- an intrepid investigator, a two-time No. 1 best-selling author, a Harvard Ph.D and a man of principle.

I am proud to have him working for WND.

If you are as angry about the attempted media lynching of Jerry Corsi, there's something you can do about it.

Buy Corsi's book. Buy extra copies of his book and distribute them to your friends. Keep this book on the best-sellers list right through the Nov. 4 election. Buy an autographed copy or two from WND, the news agency that employs him full-time.

And, most of all, read it for yourself.
