WND's Kinsolving Has Earned the Contempt He Receives
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily's Les Kinsolving has another whining fit about White House press secretary Jay Carney being mean to him by not taking another of his stupid questions:

White House press secretary Jay Carney was described as “rude” when he dismissed without consideration a couple of questions from Les Kinsolving, WND’s correspondent at the White House, during the daily news briefing today.

Kinsolving had prepared to ask a question or two about the court ruling in New York that lets school officials discriminate against churches by renting facilities to any other group.

Kinsolving, however, didn’t even get the question out, as Carney, apparently referencing a previous question from Kinsolving about a formal Senate vote, warned him to “keep it clean.”


Kinsolving told WND that he’s never experienced such treatment from a press secretary in the White House. As the reporter who is the second-most senior on the White House beat, Kinsolving has worked with some 16 or 17 different press secretaries since the 1970s when he began attending the White House briefings.

“I’ve never before seen behavior by a White House press secretary like this,” he said. “I’ve never before been denied the opportunity to ask questions by any of the other press secretaries I’ve covered.”

The headline on this article is "See White House Contempt for WND Correspondent." But there's no mention of the contempt WND and Kinsolving has for the Obama White House.

WND is so amoral that it publishes lies and smears about Obama and his administration with impunity and violates journalistic ethics on a regular basis. Kinsolving, meanwhile, is a right-wing hack, and a raging homophobe to boot, who whines every time his biased shenanigans are pushed back against.

If there is "contempt" against Kinsolving and WND, it is because they have behaved in a contemptuous manner. They have not earned the right to be taken seriously as journalists.
