Topic: WorldNetDaily
Richard Bartholomew catches WorldNetDaily distorting a report of an alleged "Taliban-type culture" at Britain's universities. The Oct. 19 WND article describes a "top-secret report" gathered by "undercover agents" that allegedly "contains a stark warning from the MI5 chief." In fact, the report is publicly available, says nothing about "Taliban-type" culture, and information was gathered from interviews undertaken by a graduate researcher, not "undercover agents." And the quote WND attributes to MI5 head Jonathan Evans probably isn't accurate either.
