Topic: WorldNetDaily
An Oct. 10 WorldNetDaily article by Diana Lynne, based on her book "Terri's Story," seems to be bearing out what we suspected: Far from a "comprehensive" account of the Terri Schiavo case, the book will promote the side of Terri's parents, the Schindlers, and bash her husband, Michael Schiavo.

The article inclusdes a 12-item list of "salient facts of the case" that the media "consistently failed to report" -- all of them negative toward Michael Schiavo. Missing from her list is anything that makes the Schindlers look bad, including:

-- The Schindlers encouraged Michael to start dating again, according to the guardian ad litem in the case.

-- Dr. William Hammesfahr, who examined Terri Schiavo and often spoke in support of the Schindlers, falsely claimed to be a Nobel Prize nominee.

-- The extremist anti-abortion backgrounds of Schindler spokesmen such as Randall Terry and Gary McCullough.

Somehow, we suspect that Lynne's book is not so "comprehensive" as to include the above information; if it does, we suspect the Schindlers or their representatives are allowed to rebut it, something we assume Michael Schindler or his representatives were not given much opportunity to do with allegations such her 12-point Michael-bashing list.

And, of course, keep in mind Lynne's history of biased reporting for WND on the Schiavo case.
