WND Stays Silent on Sanchez's Gay-Porn Past
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has posted another missive by Matt Sanchez from Iraq. In doing so, WND has again failed to mention Sanchez's past as a gay-porn actor and apparent male escort, or how it meets WND's previously stated policy of hiring "only serious and experienced journalists with the highest standards of ethics – both in their professional lives and their personal lives." WND editor Joseph Farah has previously declared that Jeff Gannon -- with a past not unlike Sanchez's -- would be a poor fit for WND.

Is WND really so willing to compromise the principles it claims to hold for the sake of political expediency -- which Sanchez has promised as a conservative reporting "good news" from Iraq? It appears so.

UPDATE: WND has posted another Sanchez article, similarly devoid of references to his gay-porn past. Meanwhile, in a Sept. 8 column, Farah is repeating his call for Larry Craig to resign because, as he explained previously, "The man is a pervert." If Farah wants Craig out of a job for homosexual behavior, how does he justify employing Sanchez?
