WorldNetDaily reporter Aaron Klein thought he had a big scoop in a November 9 article headlined "Obama AG pick was Clinton 'bimbo erpution' fixer." Just one little problem: Klein is writing about the wrong Loretta Lynch.
It's all ridiculously blatant cheerleading, and WND is complicit -- what self-respecting news organization would let a so-called reporter present as a "news" article gushing PR pieces on a film he appears in? It's a textbook example of how to violate journalistic ethics.
WorldNetDaily was an early cheerleader of the standoff between Cliven Bundy and the federal government. But the feds have backed off, the militias are still hanging out and threatening people -- which, curiously, WND has not reported.
Colin Flaherty has been spending the past couple of years at WorldNetDaily spreading the idea of a "pandemic" of "black mob violence." To create that impression, though, Flaherty has an extremely broad definition of "black mob."
The HBO show The Newsroom recently aired an episode in which WorldNetDaily is depicted as having published a fabricated story. And you know what happens when WND gets criticized: a lot of thin-skinned whining and nasty pot shots in return.
What else would one expect from a website that meticulously documents every instance of "black mob violence" but finds Paula Deen's history of racially charged behavior to be a money-making opportunity?

It's rough being Jerome Corsi these days. WorldNetDaily's star reporter has spent the past four years peddling various birther conspiracies, desperately trying to prove that Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
