Joseph Farah wasn't the only WorldNetDaily person to omit important information about the medical examiner's report on the death of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick in order to keep right-wing narratives alive.
An anonymous WND staffer wrote in an April 19 article:
The chief medical examiner in Washington, D.C., says the death of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick after the Jan. 6 riot was due to natural causes – complications from a stroke he suffered the day after the violence.
Democrats have blamed the crowd of mostly Trump-supporting activists who marched to the Capitol and broke in in protest of Congress' certification of Joe Biden's election victory.
The Washington Examiner reported Francisco Diaz, the chief medical examiner in D.C., told the Washington Post that Sicknick died after suffering two strokes.
He explained there was no allergic reaction to chemical irritants.The 42-year-old officer died a day after the riot.
Capitol Police had blamed the protesters for the death, apparently without evidence.
This anonymous WND writer joined Farah in omitting the fact that the medical examiner also said that "all that transpired" at the Capitol riot "played a role in his condition." That can be interpreted as meaning that while no single incident from the riot directly caused Sicknick's death, the riot did contribute.
Such incomplete reporting doesn't boost confidence in the veracity of what WND publishes -- and, more importantly, doesn't make people want to republish what appears at WND, which is the goal of the WND News Center, its latest gambit to stay afloat.
