Stuff WND Isn't Reporting
Topic: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily is usually more than happy to promote polls by Rasmussen Reports. After all, they tend to produce results conservatives like -- for instance, that voters want Senate Democrats to confirm John Roberts as a Supreme Court justice, or that immigrants should "adopt America's culture, language, and heritage."

An Aug. 18 Rasmussen poll notes that President Bush's job approval rating has fallen to "the lowest level ever recorded by Rasmussen Reports." But it's nowhere to be found on WND.

Also, following company policy, WND continues to play down the actions of Israeli extremists. Despite (or maybe because of) having Aaron Klein as its Jerusalem-based reporter, WND has offered no original coverage of the killing of four Palestinians by an Israeli in the West Bank (Judea and Samaria in WND parlance); the killer is also rooting for the asassination of Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon.

UPDATE: Klein gave the killing a one-paragraph mention buried in the middle of an Aug. 18 article.
