Farah vs. Gore, The Next Round
Topic: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily's Joseph Farah has penned yet another column hatin' on Al Gore. At the end of it, he adds an "important postscript" about the libel lawsuit filed against WND by Gore supporters over a Gore-bashing series WND ran before the 2000 election. Farah again makes the following claim:

Understand that this lawsuit would be dropped in a flat second if Al Gore wanted it to be dropped. Understand also that WND did nothing wrong and libeled no one in the publication of this exhaustive series.

But as we previously noted, Farah has never offered any objective evidence to back up either of those claims, nor has WND offered any unfiltered evidence from this lawsuit.

Our previous challenge still stands: Since very few of WorldNetDaily's readers have access to the court records of Hardin County, Tennessee, where the lawsuit was filed (and where we assume it still resides), WND should prove that it has aspirations beyond promoting its editor's worldview (or is it a grudge?) and post all court filings in the case -- not just the ones that make WND look good or Gore look bad -- on the WorldNetDaily website. This way, readers can judge for themselves how ethically WND behaved or whether Gore (or, more accurately, Clark Jones, the guy who filed the lawsuit and claims he was libeled) has a case.

How about it, Mr. Farah?
