Letter to WSJ on "unsubstantiated charges and smears"

Chicago, Wednesday PM, August 20, 2008

Editors, Wall Street Journal


In the Wednesday, August 20 Notable and Quotable, Peter Wehner, writing about Jerome Corsi's Obama biography, says "it's wrong to throw out unsubstantiated charges and smears against Senator Obama."

This WSJ feature is limited in length. This one is 160 words, but a recent one is 280 words. Wouldn't 120 additional words be plenty for Mr. Wehner to give just one example of an actual "unsubstantiated charge" or "smear". I haven't read Mr. Corsi's book, but I understand it is heavily sourced. It should be easy for Mr. Wehner to demonstrate such a sweeping statement, for the sake of his own credibility.
