WND Promotes Russian Propaganda
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily hates President Obama more than it loves America. How else to explain its willingness to serve as propagandists for Russia?

In a Nov. 3 WND article, Joe Kovacs excitedly writes:

While many artists in Moscow appear to fawn over Russian President Vladimir Putin in a brand-new exhibit, apparently they don’t have the same affection for U.S. President Barack Obama.

The political gallery titled “No Filters” opened Friday in Moscow, featuring the work of some 100 cartoonists.

Most of the caricatures depict Putin in a positive light, as a strong, savvy, global chess master, while Obama appears to be a dishonest, political midget who is weak, tuckered out and even harms the environment.

One striking image titled “Targeted Sanctions” shows Putin as a father figure holding Barack Obama, who has the body of a boy, over his knee to deliver a spanking. The caricature pokes fun at America’s economic strategy against Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Another takes the “Star Wars” route, featuring Putin as a virile Luke Skywalker and Obama as Darth Vader. Putin points to Obama’s light saber to let him know it has gone limp.

Like any good propagandist, Kovacs hides the true nature of this exhibit. The Guardian reports that the exhibit was put on by the youth wing of Putin's party -- in other words, pure political propaganda designed to lionize Putin and mock Putin's enemies.

Kovacs once stated he joined WND in order to report "the real news, the news that matters." Apparently, Kovacs' idea of "real news" is to serve as a propagandist for Putin.
