WND Hates Google, But Will Take Their Money
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has been a longtime critic of Google. WND editor Joseph Farah spent an entire chapter of his book "Stop the Presses!" attacking Google as an "immoral" company that "may not be able to discern right from wrong," mainly for purported discrimination against conservatives, not offering a customized version of its logo to mark Memorial Day, and because political donations by its employees lean heavily Democratic (oh, and because it purportedly doesn't place WND as high up in searches as Farah would like them to be). And in July, he accused Google of deliberately downplaying in searches WND's "content dealing with Barack Obama's eligibility," describing Google as "my old adversary."

So, with such hatred, you think Farah would be doing everything in his power to not have any business dealings with Google, right?

Wrong. Look at what we noticed on the WND website the other day:





That's right -- WND is a member of the Google AdSense ad network.

That in and of itself is not news. A lot of websites use AdSense to generate revenue (including us). But WND's use of AdSense is massively hypocritical because of WND's self-proclaimed adversarial relationship with Google.

So it seems that while Farah thinks Google is "immoral," it's perfectly happy to take their immoral money.

Farah clearly doesn't have the courage of his convictions -- he's just too greedy.
