WND Non-Disclosure Watch
Topic: WorldNetDaily

 A May 30 WorldNetDaily article touting Craig R. Smith's new gas-price-protest site, OilSolution.org, neglects to tell readers that Smith is a WND columnist and, through his Swiss America Trading Corp., a WND advertiser. The article also describes Smith as "co-author of the book Black Gold Stranglehold" while failing to mention that WND published the book. 

This is the latest installment in WND's persistent failure to disclose personal and business interests in the subjects of its news articles.
