WND's Farah Shills for Radiation Detector
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Is there no news story or disaster WorldNetDaily is too shameless to try and cash in on? Apparently not.

A March 17 WND article proudly announces that "the WND Superstore has committed to holding steady on the price of the RADSticker, even though demand, literally, has exploded." As the name suggests, the RADSticker is a sticker that detects radiation levels. The article goes on: "During times of catastrophe, the smallest act of preparation could make all the difference for you and your loved ones."

WND editor Joseph Farah, that shameless huckster himself, is even trotted out for an endorsement:

"Why resign yourself to the notion that in the event of a nuclear disaster – accidental or intentional – you and your family must perish?" asks Joseph Farah, founder and CEO of WND. "As I've written before, as devastating as radiation is, it actually dissipates quickly, often within the first 24 hours. Beyond the blast, essential to survival is being able to immediately ascertain the radiation risk levels and determine what medical treatment – if any – you would need. There's nothing that you can carry on your person that accomplishes this feat quite like this amazing little device."

Nothing like trying to make money off a disaster.
