CPAC Rejects WND request for Nirther panel at next year’s conference
Some fear GOP is being carried to the extreme:
Frum and other establishment Republicans have spoken out in recent days against the influence of what they view as their party’s fringe elements.
Some are pressuring the Republican National Committee and other mainstream GOP groups to cut ties with worldnetdaily.com, which reports some of the allegations. Its articles are cited by websites and pundits on the right. More than any other group, critics say, WorldNetDaily sets the conservative fringe agenda.
Critics charge that the RNC has paid WorldNetDaily for access to its mailing list, estimated to number in the hundreds of thousands, and that the RNC is therefore subsidizing the website’s anti-Obama writings.
