Joe “the plumber” Wurzelbacher from Natural Law Party is Charles Keating kin?

And finally, Joe the plumber being interviewed:

Joe the plumber – the meditator – Samuel Joseph Worzelbacher who was made famous by John Mccain in his various rants “who’s policy will suit Jo the plumber from Ohio more.. mine or Barak Obama’s??” has been identified in the public records by the plain dealer. Joe the plumber (as I’ll refer to him in this article, thanks to Mr Mccain), voted in the years 2002, 2005 and 2007 and mentioned his party as the Natural Law Party.

Presently registered as a republican, Joe “the plumber” Wurzelbacher was earlier a member of the Natural law Party from the state of Iowa, US. The Natural Law party was based on the views of baba Mahesh Yogi from India and believed in transcendental meditation and yoga.

Breaking News – Joe the plumber related to Charles Keating

Latest news coming in is that Joe the plumber might be related to Charles Keating. Reports have confirmed that Joe Wurzelbacher is a close relative of Robert Wurzelbacher, Milford, Ohio, who in turn happens to be the son in law of Charles Keating and American Continental’s ex-senior president the comany that formed Lincoln Savings and Loan, infamous for its deeds.

Breaking news 2 (17th Oct, 2008) – Joe the plummer doesn’t have a valid plumber’s licence.

This morning while reading the Metro on London tube, I came across an article that said it has been found that Joe the plummer doesn’t even have a valid plumber’s licence in the US. It just keeps adding to the discrepancies, doesn’t it?

Man, I’m from London too, and the way events unfold in the united states, is just unbelievable. Dunno where they got this Joe the plumber from .. this is hilarious. The video above shows how they talk about that plumber. This guy, they found is a bloody millionaire! crap american politics!

Americans are not crap, its just the politics. It is really funny. didn’t know it is this big a news in the UK too!! 🙂

One of your headlines is (quote) Joe “the plumber” Wurzelbacher from Natural Law Party is Charles Keating kin! (unquote)

The first line of the article says (quote) Latest news coming in is that Joe the plumber might be related to Charles Keating. (unquote)

“might be” ?

The one quality that keeps me supporting Obama is that throughout this hideous ordeal of a campaign, he’s been BY FAR more calm, rational, and intelligent than “that OTHER one.”

Nevermind Journalism 101 . . . merely as a supporter of Obama’s, please consider being less sensationalist and more factual with your blog. If it’s a rumor, don’t indicate that it’s a fact.

We can leave that sort of thing to John McCain and Sarah Palin, since they have so much more practice.

As far as news goes, he is my friend.. he is related to Charles Keating.. (I’ve mentioned the original post).. you never know whats true and whats not in this media orientated world anyway.. used “might” in order not to mislead my readers.. lemmi know if thats confirmed and i’ll be happy to change the might to “definitely is”..

Hmmm.

>As far as news goes, he is my friend.

Wrong. When I checked a couple of hours ago, I could find no confirmation that Joe the Plumber was related to the Wurzelbachers of Keating infamy.

Sites posting this rumor used language like yours — “may be,” “is apparently” . . .

>you never know whats true and whats not in this media orientated world anyway ..

Which is why it’s VERY important that bloggers check facts rather than just re-cycle other people’s inaccuracies.

Better to be part of the solution than part of the problem.

>used “might” in order not to mislead my readers..

Thank you! And in order to make sure you’re not misleading your readers, the headline should ALSO include the word “might.”

>lemmi know if thats confirmed and i’ll be happy to change the might to “definitely is” ..

Happy to. BTW, my fact-checking rate is $50 an hour, since I’ll be doing your work for you.

And, of course, you’ll be just as willling to issue a retraction to your headline if it turns out Joe is definitely NOT related to the Keating Wurzelbacher . . . right?

The Point: if you’re not posting accurate information and are only repeating other people’s rumors, then you’re no better than the liars you rail against.

DISCLAIMER: I don’t mean to sound preachy or critical of your efforts, but with this ugly election AND a disastrous economy . . . our country needs all the truth and justice its citizens can muster if we intend for it to survive.
