Shocker: Unruh Admits More Than One Side of Story Exists (Sorta)
Topic: WorldNetDaily

An April 19 WorldNetDaily article by Bob Unruh on a proposed Oregon gray-rights law contains something that's increasingly rare at WorldNetDaily in general and Unruh's articles in particular -- more than one side of the story.

Granted, it's only one paragraph, and the 27th paragraph at that. But we believe this is the first time that Unruh has acknowledged that there is another side of the story (as we've noted).

Of course, Unruh hands over the rest of the article to activist opponents of the measure making unsupported and unverified claims. For instance, "[Under S.B. 2], it will be legal for a man to walk into a women's shower, locker or rest room, as long as he keeps his underwear on, and anyone who complained (spell discriminate), could be sued under S.B. 2!" Unruh offers no explanation of why the legal analysis of the bill provided by this person, who he describes only as being with a "ministry" called Restore America, is accurate or in any authoritative. Indeed, Unruh quotes no legal analysts at all, only conservative Christian activists.

Unruh also quotes an pseudonymous writer on a Baltimore-based blog as a credible source without explaining why a Baltimore-based blogger is a credible source about an issue in Oregon.
