WND Ever-So-Slowly Pulling Away From Paul Nehlen
Topic: WorldNetDaily

On Jan. 26, we documented how WorldNetDaily has refused to publicly disassociate itself from Paul Nehlen -- a right-wing political candidate whose book WND published last summer -- after his turn to explicit white nationalism and anti-Semitism.

WND is still not saying anything publicly, but it has quietly made one significant step: it pulled that book, "Wage the Battle" from its own online store. Both the book and its e-book edition now return "page not found" errors. A few weeks earlier, WND had discontinued Nehlen's anti-Muslim film "Hijrah" from its online store.

Meanwhile, our speculation about the status of WND's book division having slipped into dormancy apears to have some merit. A Feb. 4 WND article announced the naming of a new editorial director for WND Books: Felicia Dionisio, who spent the past 15 years as a WND news editor. Now that someone's actually in charge of WND Books, perhaps Dionisio can make a definitive public statement about its current relationship with Nehlen -- and maybe address the fact that a promo for Nehlen's book and an author bio still remain live on the WND Books website.

Surely WND can't be so cash-strapped that it can't take a couple minutes to formally and publicly distance itself from Nehlen -- if that is indeed what it wants to do.
