WorldNetDaily's race-baiting may have become more subtle in order to hang onto ad revenue, but that doesn't mean it won't be blatant when the situation demands.
Take this April 1 article by Cheryl Chumley, in which the overriding feeling is relief that the man who killed a police officer at a bus station in Richmond, Va., has been revealed as black. The headline reads "Richmond cop killed finally ID'd as black man," and Chumley echoes the sentiment:
After nearly a day-and-a-half of waiting, authorities in Richmond, Virginia, have finally officially released the name of the suspect who was killed during a shooting attack on police at a bus station that left a law enforcement official dead and others injured – and he’s a black man who hails from the Chicago area.
WTVR CBS 6 reporter Mark Holmberg first reported late Thursday evening the name of the gunman as James Brown III, 34, of Aurora, Illinois, located about 40 miles outside Chicago. But police didn’t confirm the name until Friday morning, saying they needed to inform next of kin of his death.
As if the race of the shooter was the most important thing about this story. Of course, for the race-baiters at WND, it actually is.
