WND Lies About Itself -- Again
Topic: WorldNetDaily
How trustworthy can WorldNetDaily be when it can't tell the truth about itself? For instance, it regularly claims that Alexa has ranked it first in its "News and Media" category when, in fact, that category is the Society > Politics > Conservatism > News and Media ranking.

WND keeps up the self-promotional lies in a May 30 article listing the most popular items for sale at its bookstore:

David Kupelian's "The Marketing of Evil" – banned by faculty of Ohio State University as "hate literature" and "homophobic tripe" – maintains the top spot on the ShopNetDaily list.

In fact, as we've pointed out, Kupelian's book was never banned at the school; even the WND-penned article linked as support for the claim, despite being headlined "University faculty bans WND book," never states that the book was banned. Criticized for repeating the factually dubious Kinsey-bashing of Judith Reisman, sure, but not banned.

Such easily disprovable claims hardly inspire trust in the journalistic integrity of WND.
