What Happened to Janet Porter?
Topic: WorldNetDaily

If it seems that your Tuesdays have been a little more sane lately, there's a reason: Janet Porter has stopped writing her WorldNetDaily column.

Porter -- who has used her WND column to spew hate and lies, as well as embrace a neo-Nazi racist --  has not written a column since June 15. Right Wing Watch notes that Porter's Faith2Action website, which Porter harnessed to her personal anti-Obama crusade, has been only sporadically updated in recent weeks.

Further, as we've previously noted, Porter spearheaded a "May Day" rally at the Lincoln Memorial that was so sparsely attended that speakers to beg for money from the audience to defray the cost of staging it, and she lost her radio show after the evangelical Christian ministry that had been offering production and transmission services for it pulled the plug due to Porter's embrace of Christian dominionism.

Right Wing Watch notes that Porter has descended further into dominionism, speaking at a conference run by dominionists and Christian reconstructionists.

It's unlikely that WND canceled Porter's column -- after all, WND editor Joseph Farah holds reconstructionist views, and WND tolerates lies (and perhaps even encourages them) as long as they're about its political enemies, like President Obama. So the evidence points to Porter abandoning it, for whatever reason.
