Debunked: New smears against Dems from Moonie rags
Insight had just run a smear article claiming that Barack Obama had gone to a Muslim madrassa as a child and implied he had been inculcated in the ways of Muslim extremism. The right wing press ran with the story--including several Fox News programs and, yep, the Washington Times. But, when some actual journalists did something I hear is called reporting, it turned out the entire story was unfounded.
What wasn't unfounded, of course, was the connection between the Times and Insight. According to Insight's own web site, it is published "by News World Communications like its sister publication The Washington Times" (News World is, of course owned and operated by Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church) and, if you want to send a letter to Insight editor Jeffrey Kuhner, his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The real question, though, is whether Insight will distance itself from the Times now that it's been caught publishing false allegations against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Jeff Kuhner may even want to change his email address.
