WND's coverage of the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton -- in which Trump's birtherism came up -- is an example of WND fleeing from the legacy it owns.
The news that Donald Trump has renounced birtherism (in front of the cameras, anyway) has to be a blow to WorldNetDaily, which helped Trump behind the scenes with his birther obsession.

It seems that WND has declared a total blackout on treating Cruz the way it did Obama where eligibility is concerned -- and even WND's chief birther is compelled to play along.
