You may be right, but here's what Wiki says about Workers World:
Workers World Party (WWP) is a communist party in the United States founded in 1959 by Sam Marcy. Marcy and his followers split from the Socialist Workers Party in 1958 over a series of long-standing differences . . .The WWP describes itself as a party that has, since its founding, "supported the struggles of all oppressed peoples". It has recognized the right of nations to self-determination, including the nationally oppressed peoples inside the United States. . . . Initially the WWP was confined to the Buffalo, New York area, where it had constituted the Buffalo and other smaller branches of the SWP, like Youngstown, Ohio, but expanded in the 1960s. During the Civil Rights Movement the WWP had a youth movement, "Youth Against War and Fascism", which opposed the Vietnam War. Workers World and YAWF were also notable for their consistent defense of the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground along with Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Puerto Rican Independence movement.
If you take a look at the Wiki article on the Daily Worker, you'll see that it was actually affiliated with the Communist Party. During the 60's, it was known as simply the Worker. I remember that paper as being the voice of Communism in the post-WWII period.
The WWP sounds like a splinter group. I've not previously heard of them. When I saw the article that started this thread, I thought the name was an attempt to associate the newspaper, or the web site, with the Wobblies.
"Those who make enormous profits from the Olympics and all sports, those who pressure young athletes to win at all costs, those who use and then discard and denigrate them—this is who should take the blame for a situation they created."
