Farah's AP Hypocrisy
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah's March 7 WoirldNetDaily column rips the Associated Press as "the worst purveyor of political propaganda and distortion," a "pervasive information virus," and "deceitful."

We'd believe Farah's alleged outrage was genuine if we hadn't noticed the following on WND's front page today:






































That's right -- WND is making liberal use of the wire service its leader is railing against. And WND is not paying a dime to AP for relying on its material, either.

As as we've previously noted. WND has also plagiarized AP material without giving them proper credit -- something WND itself has complained about.

"Something must be done," Farah concludes. We agree -- WND should stop profiting off work it doesn't pay for, particularly in light of its contempt for the creators of said work.

If there was ever a textbook definition of hypocrisy, this would be it. If Farah hates the AP so much, why is he freeloading on it to run his business?
