Esquire’s The Politics blog is reporting that Dr. Jerome Corsi’s book on Obama, Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, is being ripped from the shelves and pulped. World Net Daily’s Joseph Farah is quoted as saying: “[A]t the end of the day bullshit is bullshit.”
Those who purchased the book are entitled to a return of their money.
UPDATE: It appears the Esquire blog was a “parody.” WND does not apparently regard it as funny reports the Daily Caller. I don’t regard it as funny, either.
Here’s the World Net Daily response:
A major national publication that endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008 today published a completely fabricated news story claiming Jerome Corsi’s new best-selling “Where’s the Birth Certificate” has been disavowed by the publisher, taken out of stores nationwide and refunds given to any and all customers.
Esquire, established in 1932, alleged on its website today under a “BREAKING” headline that Corsi’s book was “pulled from shelves!”
And despite the fact that media are calling WND from around the world concerned about the report, it is completely false.
WND founder and CEO Joseph Farah confirmed he never spoke to Esquire. “Never uttered these words or anything remotely resembling them to anyone. It is a complete fabrication.”
He said, “The book is selling briskly. I am 100 percent behind it. This has all the earmarkings of a White House dirty trick — but, of course, only the Nixon administration was capable of dirty tricks like that, according to our watchdog media.”
