WND Removes Aborigines From 'Black Mob' Article, Doesn't Explain Why
Topic: WorldNetDaily

It took a while, but WorldNetDaily has removed the image of Australian aborigines from an Oct. 6 article by Colin Flahery that's supposed to be about "black mob violence."

But in typical WND style, it has not mentioned the deletion of the dishonest image to its readers, let alone publicly explain why it was deleted. Tweets and emails directed at WND by ConWebWatch have gone unanswered, though one could surmise that the deletion is our answer.

But we still have the screenshot of the erroneous image, as well as its use in promoting the article (above), so we will continue to bring this up as necessary until WND publicly explains the snafu to its readers.

Yes, we're clearly horrible people for demanding WND live up to professional journalism standards. But they fancy themselves to be real journalists, so we will hold them to that standard until they tell us not to.
