WorldNutDaily (WorldNetDaily or WND nickname)

World Net Daily (WND) is a conservative website that began in May 1997. The site was nicknamed “WorldNutDaily” (or “World Nut Daily") by at least June 2000. The “nut” could come from the word “wingnut” or just from the word “nut” (crazy).

“WingNutDaily” is another WND nickname.

Wikipedia: WorldNetDaily
WorldNetDaily (WND) is an American web site that publishes news and associated content from a U.S. conservative perspective. It was founded in May 1997 by Joseph Farah with the stated intentions of “exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power” and is headquartered in Washington, D.C.

About WND
WorldNetDaily.com can best be explained by its mission statement:

“WorldNetDaily.com Inc. is an independent news company dedicated to uncompromising journalism, seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power.

“We also seek to stimulate a free-and-open debate about the great moral and political ideas facing the world and to promote freedom and self-government by encouraging personal virtue and good character.”

Indeed, WorldNetDaily.com is a fiercely independent newssite committed to hard-hitting investigative reporting of government waste, fraud and abuse.

Founded by Joseph and Elizabeth Farah in May 1997, it is now a leading Internet newssite in both traffic and influence.

We really CAN go straight! Here I thought it was just another vast right wing conspiracy since I read about it in the *Sludge Report* and *World Nut Daily*. But it must be true! Because it was on the front page of my city’s newspaper last night! Love ya! (Bruce)

Particularly funny are the people who as “proof” post links to sites like Newsmax, World Nut Daily, or Judicial Watch.

Where does World NUT Daily pick up such utter drivel to publish?
