Show Your Work, WND
Topic: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily is putting its inimitable spin on Dick Cheney shooting a hunting companion. A Feb. 15 article by Joe Kovacs reports on a song by Jill Sobule that, in Kovacs' words, suggests that "the vice president was hunting with a male companion as part of a homosexual love story."

Kovacs also lists what he calls "[o]nline reaction from those who have heard the song," but doesn't say where this reaction came from. Aren't journalists supposed to tell readers where they get their information from?

Yes, they are. But then again, Kovacs pulled information for a previous article on teacher-student sex from a gossip site.

And then again, too -- as we've repeatedly established -- WND isn't exactly journalism.
