WASHINGTON – Joseph Farah, WND’s founder, will appear as a guest on “Freedom Watch” with Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday evening on the Fox Business Channel to talk about his plan to stop another debt limit increase later this year.
Farah has re-launched his “No More Red Ink” campaign aimed at freezing borrowing in Washington by persuading Republicans in Congress it’s the only serious way to address the debt crisis.
The campaign is a multi-pronged effort that includes a high-tech, grass-roots lobbying component, a new pledge for candidates and elected officials to oppose more borrowing, public education and the building of coalitions of like-minded organizations and prominent individuals.
Last year the campaign sent more than 1 million letters to House Republicans in an effort to avert another debt limit increase. Last summer, however, only 22 House Republicans voted to oppose the debt limit hike. In addition, House Speaker John Boehner agreed to a deal that abdicated the authority of the Republican House from stopping another increase until after the November election.
The show airs at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern.
Farah is editor and chief executive officer of WND.com, the world’s leading independent Internet news source.
In addition, Farah writes a daily column for WND and a weekly nationally syndicated newspaper column for Creators News Service. He is also the founder and chief executive officer of WND Books, a publishing venture that has produced the highest percentage of New York Times best-sellers of any publishing company in the U.S.
Farah has written or collaborated on 14 books that have sold more than 10 million copies. His latest is “The Tea Party Manifesto: A Vision for an American Rebirth.”
Among his 13 other books are “Taking America Back,” which has been published in three editions and more than 15 printings. He has collaborated with Rush Limbaugh, Hal Lindsey, Greg Laurie and others.
Farah made a name for himself with traditional daily newspapers prior to his founding of WND – running the Sacramento Union, directing the news operation of the Los Angeles Herald Examiner for six years and serving as editor in chief of a group of California dailies and weeklies. He was a reporter, foreign correspondent, editor in chief of major market dailies and newspaper publisher before launching the first independent online news service in the world.
The former nationally syndicated daily talk-show host has written for such publications as the Wall Street Journal, Jerusalem Post, National Review, TV Guide, Reason, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times and a host of other national, international and regional publications.
