NOM manages to make 'WorldNetDaily' report even more deceptive

by Jeremy Hooper

Check out this headline and blog post that just went up on the National Organization For Marriage's blog:

Right. Except, you know those investors that WND's Drew Zahn frames as supposedly in need of appeasement? That would actually be one investor. The quoted text came in reaction to a question from Thomas Strobhar, a NOM-aligned figure who spoke immediately after NOM's own Johnathan Baker at the March shareholder meeting, hours before the NOM boycott even began! The quote that Zahn is running NOM is using to make it sound like Schulz is now fending off worried investors is actually the response that Schulz gave when Strobhar—who, it should be noted, has carved out quite a career for himself as a sort of professional protestor at shareholder meetings— confronted the CEO at the meeting, not in response to any fallout that has come in the days since.

Here, listen to it for yourself (Quoted response begins around 2:45):

There has been no mass clamoring from investors, who are actually probably quite thrilled that the stock has only risen in the days since NOM's terrible boycott began. And there is certainly no admitting of worry from Schulz. It's all spin from the organization that loves to tell us they are all about truth and values and strong witness, yet whose disregard for fundamental facts belies that notion on an hourly basis!

Pagebreak-55

***Oh, and while we're on the subject of Tom Strobhar, who NOM press-released just yesterday in order to promote his actions against Bank Of America, let's look at what this same Tom Strobhar puts in his punditry profile in order to get booked in the media:
