    Seems O.k, usually you can pick up the same stories elsewhere.

    Though WND is very partisan, very conservative, and very pro-GOP...i still think it is a pretty good news service.
    As for it being CNN or tabloids...nah, except maybe a right winged version of CNN.
    I'll still take Fox News over any of them.

    I looked up the phrase "yellow journalism" in my dicrionary and they had a picture of the WND homepage next to it.

    At best, WND is an events-oriented gossip golumn. Scriptuer admonishes us to refrain from rumor and gossip. Hence, we should refrain from WND, or any other tabloid rag like the Enquirer, Weekly World News, etc.

    Using the above definition from wikipedia,
    Dan Rather would fit the bill here and so would a lot of news agencies that are considered mainstream, particularly when it comes to the political arena. Case in point is the accidental shooting by the VP this past weekend.
