Aaron Klein Watch: WND/ Aaron Klein Rip Me Off . . . AGAIN, Regurgitate Schlussel Column

By Debbie Schlussel
For like the gazillionth time, inept plagiarist Aaron Klein–the lazy fraud from World Nut Daily–again ripped me off today. I’ve told you about past instances, in which he repeated my entire column almost word for word, with his byline, and in which he ripped off my work for “his” book.
On Friday, I published a “Myths & Facts” column debunking the claim circulating around the internet–and repeated by such ignoramuses as Brigitte Tudor a/k/a Brigitte Gabriel–that Barack Obama gave $20.3 million to bring Palestinians and HAMAS terrorists to America. As I noted, the money is UNRWA money.
Well, guess who ripped me off . . . AGAIN, because he can’t come up with his own stuff? Aaron Klein and World Nut Daily, which, yesterday, repeated my column and add a few extra quotes. What the heck would they do without me? They’re simply shameless in their stealing. And I hope you won’t support these thieves.



Aaron Klein: WND’s Talentless Hack is Serial Plagiarist

The false rumors about the Obama funding have been going around for weeks. And Aaron Klein didn’t know any better, nor did he bother to look into it. But, suddenly, once I wrote debunking this myth, the ganif [Yiddish for “thief”] Klein–who constantly lurks on this site for new material and ideas to steal–took note and repeated, without credit as usual, what I wrote. Incredibly–as he did the last time he ripped me off–the ganif Klein marks this a “WorldNetDaily Exclusive.” Hilarious. I report it on Friday. He steals it and regurgitates it on Sunday, and suddenly this is an “exclusive”?!
As I’ve noted in the past, Aaron Klein constantly sports a yarmulke (the skullcap worn by religious Jews) and claims he’s an Orthodox Jew in marketing himself and “his” work, er . . . rip-offs. But he’s not a religious Jew and e-mailed me on the Jewish Sabbath, which he admits. And even if that were not the case, the guy can’t even abide by the Ten Commandments, like that tiny detail about “Thou Shalt Not Steal.”
And he’s a liar. Aaron Klein had to apologize and retract a story he made up, claiming that FOX News paid ransom to Palestinian terrorists for FOX News personnel’s release. It never happened. He simply fabricated it and got caught.
As I’ve also noted in the past, Aaron even ripped off this site for his crappy book, in which he not only ripped off my column on Richard Gere and his work with terrorists, but he got it wrong. When you don’t do your own work, you don’t know what you’re talking about. This guy is a congenital thief who needs help. But Joseph Farah, the equally unethical editor and owner of WND, condones this kind of rip-off. So much for his claims to being a born-again Christian. He asked me to come back to his black helicopter site, but I wouldn’t. So, I guess ripping me off is the next best thing. So much for his claim to being a born-again Christian. They’re supposed to believe in the Ten Commandment part about not stealing, too.
There’s nothing you can believe about this hypocrite, including and especially his byline. He has no original ideas–he’s stolen yet another from this site today–and anything he writes is either ripped off from a website, like mine, or from Israeli newspapers. Israelis laugh at him, as do many of the Muslims in Gaza he claims to have interviewed who never heard of the guy. Much of his work–if it isn’t ripped off from others–is fabricated. Don’t believe a thing you read by this guy. Jayson Blair had nothing on him.

Women in America are -in some extent- not respected and regarded as inferior creatures by American men.
Imagine if you, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham and Michelle Malkin (regardless of your political views) were all men , do you think the disrespect, the attacks, the mockery, and the general attitude of men toward you would be the same? Or at least would it have the same intensity as it has now?
I don’t think so.
Sexism like racism is real, alive and well in America.
Sometimes I don’t see much difference between the American society and its Middle-Eastern counterpart in terms of how they view women.

If you don’t do original research, you get the facts wrong. Plagiarists not only don’t care about crediting others for their work, they’re too lazy to bother to check the information for themselves. Thus, they not only injure others, they do the truth a disservice. Nothing in life comes free and that’s nowhere more evident than in covering life’s major events. True exclusives are hard to come by while the rank amateurs break them every day. That’s the difference between a real journalist and one who pretends to be a journalist and plagiarists drop even the pretense when they think no one is looking. So why would you trust them to convey the truth accurately? It does not speak for itself.

Done. In the unlikely event I get a response, I’ll let you know what happens….

Advocating honesty and condemning plagiarism is bucking a cultural trend. We all know the extent to which cheating and plagiarism have infested our society in general. We have all read the surveys of students of all grade levels, and the astoundingly high percentage of students who cheat, the high percentage of job applicants who lie on their applications (probably much worse today, in these times), etc. It is related to the overall degradation of culture in our society. When we see nitwits like Klein, Hannity, etc., doing it, it shows us that the decline in moral standards affects the right as well as the left. Sometimes I think this type of plagiarism is symptomatic of the decline of conservatism in general — they can’t seem to come up with many original ideas in Congress or political campaigns either.

Klein clips articles from the English language Israeli press….ages them for a week to 6 months, and then publishes them under his own name.
I AM an Israeli, one of the very few who read the American press, and I have been disgusted by Klein since day one. On the other hand…consider who he works for.

In addition to sending an email to Aaron Klein and Joseph Farah, you might also try sending an email to letters@worldnetdaily.com. I just did.
I used to read WND but I do not read it anymore. The only time I ever even bother with them is when Debbie writes an article pointing out how WND has ripped her off again. I suspect I am not alone.

He comments on a telephone call-in service called Kol Ha’Olam. My husband is addicted to him. I keep on telling him that I saw it on the Debbie Schlussel site. But, anyway, if you want your comments to be heard, you can leave a message for Aaron Klein at (718) 305-5000. Follow the prompts.

Please call Joseph Farah and express you displeasure!

Miluimnik on February 16, 2009 at 8:23 pm

Debbie, you have really torn open some wounds here by posting that first link. I’m so ashamed. I suggest we officially make up now.

I never read them anymore either. I enjoy their effort to get bH0 to release his birth certificate and find it ironic in a site that is asking for transparency, shall we say as the new prez is fond of, that they themselves can’t offer the same to their readers. You can quote Joe Biden, “Values is a 3 letter word.”
