WND Treats Right-Wing Attacks on Health Care As Fact -- Even The False Ones
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily's Chelsea Schilling -- who proved her mettle in regurgitating press releases at least once already this week -- showed off her regurgitation skills again in a July 16 article attacking the health reform bill.

Uncritically repeating false assertions that the bill "would make individual private medical insurance illegal"? Check.

Embrace of the Republicans' chart of how purportedly complicated a public health option would be without any comparison with the current health care system or Republican alternatives, not to mention a note to "click to see enlarged version on Dr. Orly Taitz' website"? Check.

Treatment of all critics' statements as factual while making no apparent effort to allow supporters of the plan to respond? Double-check.

But then, such inattention to real journalism is what WND is paying Schiling to do.
