Another WND Ad Disguised As News?
Topic: WorldNetDaily
A Nov. 30 WorldNetDaily article describes a case of a deformed child who received free surgery from a group called Mercy Ships. There is no indication that Mercy Ships is a WND advertiser -- its ads have appeared on WND previously, and the article contains a WND-specific donor link.

As we've detailed, WND is a notorious violator of journalistic standards that separate news and advertising. WND should have disclosed in the article that Mercy Ships is an advertiser; it did not, and rarely does, which creates the impression that WND's news pages have been co-opted for advertising purposes.
