The last word on the Delta Air Lines smear.

This was published yesterday on WorldNet Daily News in the Letter to the Editor section. A little after the fact, but better than nothing. As I have said before, the most valuable asset conservatives have is their credibility and they must protect it at all costs. If you don't verify your facts you run the risk of spreading false rumors and then no one will believe what you have to say.

WND: Pot calling the kettle black
Your story "WND sues Esquire for faked report" contains the following statement, which I happen to agree is entirely true:
"You can't just make up words and put them in people's mouths, deliberately misleading the public, deliberately defaming others and deliberately lying to inhibit commerce," Farah said.
How, then, can WND make up words when describing the actions of other companies? Your lead story on Delta Airlines, titled "Delta adopts Saudi 'no-Jew' fly policy," is as phony and misleading as the story in Esquire because Delta has no flights to Saudi Arabia and has said they have no intention of having any flights there, and they do not codeshare with any airline that does. So how could they possibly adopt such a policy?
What WND did in the story on Delta is exactly the same as what Esquire did to you. You deliberately misled the public and deliberately lied to inhibit commerce.
The facts are that the traveling public is required to obtain their own visas if it is required to enter a foreign country. Every airline is required to ask for proof that the passenger has a visa before allowing the passenger to board the flight. If the passenger did not obtained a required visa then they will not be allowed on the flight, but the airline doesn't know the reason why the passenger hasn't got one.
