WND Promotes Unfounded Accusations
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A July 6 WorldNetDaily article by Brian Fitzpatrick is a one-sided affair that uncritically repeats accusations by former Department of Justice staffer J. Christian Adams about purported "anti-whte bias" in the department and its decision not to pursue a criminal case against the New Black Panther Party on charges of voter intimidation.

How unbalanced is this article? It's not until the 40th paragraph that Fitzpatrick sees fit to include a single paragraph of response from the DOJ.

This means you will not learn from WND that Adams has no firsthand knowledge of the accusations he makes -- despite Fitzpatrick's quoting of Adams saying otherwise -- that the Bush administration, not the Obama administration, made the decision not to prosecute the New Black Panthers, or that Adams is a right-wing activist who was brought into the DOJ as part of a politicization process taken undertaken during the Bush administration.
