- As WorldNetDaily reported Feb. 22, the most likely victim of a hate crime in the U.S. is a poor, young, white, single urban dweller, according to an analysis of Justice Department statistics collected between July 2000 and December 2003.

- In February, WorldNetDaily was first to reveal the findings of a report which showed men, not women, are the real victims of sexual discrimination so virulent it is shortening their life spans, causing them to be self-destructive and suicidal, crippling their educational opportunities and destroying a generation of fatherless children. The research contained in the report was conducted by the New Hampshire Commission on the Status of Men, one of several state panels convened to re-evaluate assumptions about the role of men in society. And as WND also reported, the same panel blew the lid off so-called “paternity fraud.” The panel found as many as 30 percent of men paying child support were, indeed, not the biological fathers of the children being supported. The commission found that even men who later were able to prove they were paying support for the children of other men were sometimes still forced by courts and state agencies to keep paying.
