U.N. stands on plan to shut down reporters

Controversial 'global warming' Copenhagen conference looms By Bob Unruh Posted: December 04, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 WorldNetDaily The media coordinator for the United Nations' global warming summit in Copenhagen said today he is standing on his decision not to allow a WND senior reporter to cover the event, which has been described as a key step in the founding of a one-world government. "Everything we had to say was said in the [e-mail] text," Axel Wuestenhagen, reached on his cell phone as he was preparing for the event, told WND. "I'm not commenting on the text. That was the agreement reached. … I think I'll have to stick to that." WND had requested permission for Jerome Corsi, a senior staff writer who previously has been accredited for coverage of the U.N. and is a two-time No. 1 New York Times best-selling author, to cover the event. Wuestenhagen initially said the request was delayed because of a flood of applications. He later confirmed to WND's legal counsel, Gary Kreep, that WND, "as a for-profit subsidiary of the nonprofit Western Journalism Center," did not qualify. "Having now reviewed the application and in consultation with the Media and Accreditation Unit in New York, regrettably, we are not in a position to grant accreditation in this instance," he wrote. "As a for-profit subsidiary of the nonprofit Western Journalism Center, we follow the U.N. guidelines on accreditation which specifies that advocacy publications of nongovernmental or nonprofit organizations do not qualify for media accreditation. Please note that the organization is under no obligation to accept your request if it does not meet U.N. standards and requirements for press accreditation." READ FULL STORY >
