A while back someone sent me an email with a link to a show that will air on Discovery Channel about the greatest American ever. The nominees were to be voted in by viewers, and the emailer asked me to go vote for Joseph Smith. Well, today I saw a news article about this show and went to check out the list of nominees. Sure enough, Joseph Smith is among the 100 nominees. The article links to a bio of Joseph Smith which was taken from Encyclopedia of World Biography, and it gives a very unflattering description of his life and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It appears to me that they are trying to sway voters by using this single, negative source for his bio.
