Because its utter lies and complete garbage? People look at it and think that it might be a relevant, respectable, sensible source of news. It
doesn't scream out 'absolute nutters write these fantasies'. Why should we not try to help peopel not be duped?
So that it can no longer be cited as a source on ATS?
There is no source of information that we censor or don't permit on ATS.
Some of the other comments in this thread regarding Fox News makes it sound like they are next on your list.
FOX news is
To be honest, it seems like you have a problem with conservative news sources in general.
I certainly don't. Its crap news sources that I don't like, and that others don't like. Foreign Affairs is seen as a conservative/neo-con news
source, but I'm not bashing it. Heck, I think its a great news source. Because the peopel that write for it are smart, educated, honest, and they do
their research. WND isn't any of those things.
it would be incredibly simple to tear down practically any news source, such as MSNBC, CBS, NBC, etc. using many of the arguments that are
used against WND.
Alright, so go ahead and do it.
Please show us where the peopel that run MSNBC are outright fabricating material and constantly pushing fantasies, like WND does with its 'al qaida
has snuck in 40 nukes into the us and is going to use them,...sooon!" which they've been humping for years now.
Maybe you should start similar threads for all other news sources. Now that would be interesting.
If you think that there is a problem with a news source, then by all means, start a thread on it and show what the problem is.
WND is less credible than most supermarket tabloids
Literally. There have been instances where National Enquirer and the like have actual broke the news on some stories (usually gossipy type things of
course). Thats because they have no journalistic standards or system, and people basically submit what they want. If it looks like it'll sell copy,
the publishers run it. WND, on the other hand, is less concerned with money, and more concerned with pushing lies and fantasies.
