“It’s Corsi being smeared” We have a parallel universe at work here.

In the parallel universe, where truth is fiction and fiction is truth.

WND senior staff reporter Jerome Corsi, author of the New York Times No. 1 best-selling book, “The Obama Nation,” is a fiercely independent and courageous journalist who put his own life and well-being at risk to travel to Kenya to dig up the truth about presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Specifically, Corsi was concerned about Obama’s connections to Kenya’s thug of a prime minister, Raila Odinga.

For his heroic efforts, Corsi has been vilified by most of the so-called “Fourth Estate” in America, which is firmly entrenched in the Obama camp, abducted by Kenya security officials, held incommunicado without food for an entire day, blocked from holding a press conference in the country and smeared by those pretending to be independent journalists in Africa.

It is those reckless, baseless, libelous smears I want to deal with today, because in today’s derivative media environment, such character assassination has a way of taking on a life of its own.

I am actually asking Americans to read the worst of these screeds.

I do so in the hopes that it will immunize you and the rest of the civilized world against the sick, twisted lies it propagates.

After a bit of gratuitous ad hominem name-calling, the Business Daily Africa story written by Mwenda wa Micheni, and headlined ironically, “How Jerome Corsi earns a living from political smear,” the piece states, in a classic case of accusing someone of doing what you do, “But most of his assertions are not necessarily supported by verifiable evidence, something that casts doubt to his credibility as a writer.”

Ask yourself this question: Who has more credibility as a writer – Mwenda wa Micheni or Dr. Jerome Corsi, two-time No. 1 best-selling author?

The writer (I’m not even sure if it is a man or a woman) goes on to portray devout Roman Catholic Corsi as an anti-Catholic bigot and the man who partnered with prominent Muslims to promote freedom in Iran as anti-Muslim.

But all that pales in comparison to the ultimate smear perpetrated only in this article – without the slightest shred of evidence, because none exists.

“Ironically,” the article states, “Mr. Corsi has also been involved in a child pornography scandal. In 2003, U.S. authorities indicate, Mr. Corsi was indicted for distributing child pornography, a case that eventually disappeared after he was handed a lenient judgment – something that inspired several conspiracy theories in the U.S.”

Not even the John Kerry campaign or the Barack Obama campaigns have dared level such an accusation because they are savvy enough to understand defamation law in the U.S. and other civilized nations of the world.

Corsi has held top-secret security clearances from the U.S. government. For 20 years he has held securities licenses that require regular fingerprinting and criminal records checks.

“I don’t even have auto parking or speeding violations on my record, and I detest pornography and consider it evil,” says Corsi about this latest accusation.

Since the parent company of this scandal sheet boasts of being “the largest independent media house in East and Central Africa,” I am going to advise Corsi to sue for defamation in the U.S. I will personally volunteer to serve as both a character witness (as his employer) and as a certified expert witness on professional journalistic standards and practices. If there is any justice in the world, Corsi will find himself as the owner of “the largest independent media house in East and Central Africa.” At least under his direction, the company might live up to its own crowing.

But, I’ll be honest with you. Corsi’s time is better spent doing what he does so well – not trifling with the proliferators of Third World agitprop.

Still, I know, as a husband and father, what it feels like to have this kind of charge leveled in print – no matter how ridiculous, no matter how groundless, no matter the source.

That’s why I am asking you to read this vicious pack of lies from the pit of hell so you can appreciate the opposition Dr. Corsi is facing. Pray for him. And pray for the one news agency in the world that faithfully supports his relentless and fearless search for the truth.
