Stupid Made-Up Organization gives Stupid Made-Up Award to Purveyor of Stupid Made-Up News.

If you're at all familiar with WingNut Daily, you probably know them as peddlers of any conspiracy theory, no matter how laughable, as long as it casts Barack Obama as the villain. But that's because you live in the "reality-Based" community. There's a whole other world out there, you know. A world in which Thomas Kinkade is an artistic genius, Tim Tebow is an all-pro quarterback, and George W. Bush kept us safe. In that world, WND just received an award for being a "reliable" "news" source. 2012 Most Trustworthy News Sources

World Net Daily

What are the criteria for such an award? Glad you asked. But bear in mind that for this organization, every word they use seems to mean the opposite of what it means in English:

  1. Reliability: Consistent, regularly updated delivery of news. 
Okay, I'll give them that. They do post regularly and consistently. So does, but still, it's something. 
     2.  Accuracy: Well-rounded stories which focus upon facts rather than gossip or hearsay.

    3. Quality: Favors informative, well-written pieces over sheer quantity.


   4. Balance: Stories are selected and reported aside from bias or agenda.

   5. Reach: Strong authority and readership across the web.


 So, yeah, obviously Wing Nut Daily meets all of these criteria!


World Net Daily: Trustworthy News Sources
With a continual commitment to the truth and top-notch journalistic practices, World Net Daily has time and again exposed corruption in the media and politics while maintaining good journalistic practices.
WND clearly differentiates when they’re reporting news and providing commentary or opinion. 

Holy cow!

Yeah, sure, WND is totally a reliable news source. Sure, why not?
