Every year, WND has invited readers to submit their candidates for the most “spiked” stories of the year through its WND Forum “Operation Spike.”
This year, WND is adding another dimension. A WND poll asks readers to choose from a list of 20 the story that was most ignored by the establishment press.
From the poll results, the list will be narrowed down to 10 finalists, and another poll will be offered to determine the final ranking and the readers’ pick for 2010’s most under-reported story.
WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah has sponsored “Operation Spike” every year since 1988 and since founding WorldNetDaily in May 1997 has continued the annual tradition. For the past 12 years, WND has invited its readers to join in and submit what they considered the most underreported stories of the past year.
Last year, WorldNetDaily’s “readers’ choice” picks for the 10 most underreported stories of 2009 were:
- Evidence the Fort Hood mass murderer was an Islamic terrorist acting as part of a larger, radical Islamic movement
- The Tea Party movement, including the 9/12 Washington, D.C., rally
- The “Climategate” leaked e-mails and the devastating, smoking-gun proof they offer of corrupt and grossly politicized junk science
- Obama’s constitutional eligibility to be president
- The true impact on Americans of Obama’s health-care agenda
- The true impact on the U.S. and world economies of cap-and-trade, should it become law
- The true cause of the subprime meltdown that led to the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
- Obama’s czars and other radical appointees
- The Obama administration pushed for the legally ousted Honduran president to be put back in office and also called for a halt to Jewish residential construction in the Holy Land after the president insisted during the Iran protests that he could not interfere in another country’s politics.
- The exposure of ACORN’s criminality by a freelance undercover probe and the many criminal charges against the community organizing group tied to President Obama and the Democratic Party
