Editorial notes
  • The section Obama's birth certificate controversy needs updating with their new, almost pornographic interest, in analysing the released copy.

Not to be confused with[edit]

WMD? (talk) 18:01, 1 June 2015 (UTC)


David Rives appears to be their current young earth creationism "scientist". He's got a ton of videos in his archive, but i have not come across him outside of WND. He may need some expansion. Petey Plane (talk) 15:23, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Cover story (sticky)[edit]

Nominating WND, probably the standard bearer for far-right, wingnut internet "news" sites.

  • They promote creationism, and basically every other crank scientific theory of the far right (global warming denial, abiotic oil, vaccine truthers, etc...)
  • Biblical literallists
  • The original Birther promoters
  • Just look at the list of their regular commentators (Ray Comfort, Ted Nugent, Pat Buchanan, Chuck Norris, Phyllis Schlafly, Larry Clayman, the list goes on and on)
  • Farah's mustache
  • Now David Barton's exclusive publisher, along with all the other tripe they publish
  • Actually got in small feud with Andrew Schlafly over the conservative Bible project

And, unlike most of the absurdist wingnut sites, they can occasionally influence the mainstream media narrative

(i also think i polished it pretty good, with some quality snark, if i do say so myself) So yep, throwing WND's hat in the ring.Petey Plane (talk) 21:20, 8 March 2016 (UTC)

Needs a thorough fact check, and its contents have previously been the sort of thing that gets outdated quickly - David Gerard (talk) 15:13, 9 March 2016 (UTC)
Ok, i'll work on that.Petey Plane (talk) 15:17, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

The polls[edit]

They appear to be outdated URLs, and I'm not sure if they're archived on Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 23:21, 9 March 2016 (UTC)


This is a bad section. Herr FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 20:23, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

True, the quote is useful though. I'll find a better place for it and delete that section.Petey Plane (talk) 20:30, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Actually, the order of the columns (in relation to their relevancy) in general is a little out of whack. Next thing to fix.Petey Plane (talk) 20:57, 10 March 2016 (UTC)

Ray Comfort explains why an atheist can't be president[edit] Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 21:27, 8 November 2016 (UTC)

Huh. Weird. Ray Comfort accidentally said something factually accurate. Americans do dislike atheists. ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 21:29, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
