WND Lets Michael Schiavo Speak
Topic: WorldNetDaily
We may have a first here: the first time WorldNetDaily has dedicated an article mostly to Michael Schiavo, and the first time any article including Michael's side of the Terri Schiavo case wasn't "balanced" with slanderous accusations by Terri's parents.

WND does crib its Sept. 27 article from the Minneapolis Star Tribune (a fact disclosed for once, though it's still a form of quasi-pagiarism, of WND getting "original" content that it doesn't pay for), and the article does slip in references to protesters outside the venue where Michael Schiavo was speaking at a conference honoring Ronald Cranford. But it's not the overheated, disproven accusations from Terri's parents, the Schindler family, that WND dutifully inserted in every article mentioning Michael earlier this year (as ConWebWatch has noted).

Perhaps that was an oversight, something overlooked by the WND minion in charge of cribbing the article. After all, we still have Diana Lynne's WND-published "Terri's Story" to look forward to, where it appears the Michael-bashing will continue to run rampant.
