WND Lets Its Bias Hang Out
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily's regular denials that it's a conservative website have always been laughable, as its pro-conservative, anti-liberal bias has always been self-evident.

WND has apparently decided to abandon even the pretense now: It's now selling a bumper sticker (below) that reads, "Defeat Obama, Osama and Chelsea's Mama."

 Presumably WND understands that by taking explicit sides in a political race -- not to mention equating political candidates to terrorists in a manner more suited to partisan hacks than a "news" organization -- it gives up any remaining credibility as a news source, that its news reports on said race will be forever seen as trafficking in bias. Of course, WND has always done this, as its repeated, factually dubious (if not outright false) attacks on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama attest.

Needless to say, a real news organization would never sell such a bumper sticker. 

Apparently, with the admission that it published false information about Al Gore, Joseph Farah and Co. have stopped caring about the issue of bias, or even the truth. It's a site that peddles lies, distortions and hate, and damn proud of it.

Just don't call it journalism.
