Sheesh! Talk about a completely misplaced set of priorities! In the wake of the Paris terror attacks last week in which hundreds were killed and wounded, what is now the main concern for Huffington Post reporter Daniel Marans? How the attacks will make a global climate deal more likely. In this, he sure sounds like he is as tone deaf as Brian Williams who expressed the same concern during the middle of the Paris attacks. Let us now join Marans in his complete divorce from reality:
Jonathan Cohn is the reliably liberal senior national correspondent for the Huffington Post. Therefore, one must take notice when he subjected the fiscal policy answers of the Democrat presidential candidates to a robust vetting after their Saturday debate and found them quite wanting. Cohn's problem is he thinks the candidates should be honest about having to increase taxes. You really expect honesty from them on this matter, Jonathan?
Never has an actor shown how dependent he is on good writing than Viggo Mortensen. Without J.R.R. Tolkien putting words in his mouth, the erstwhile Aragorn of Lord of the Rings sounds confused at best, and often downright idiotic. Never more so than in a recent interview wherein he meditated on the semantics of The Star-Spangled Banner.
Last Monday your humble correspondent pointed out what was apparently a lapse in the absurd Huffington Post policy initiated in July to only cover Donald Trump on its Entertainment, not Politics, page. However, the Huffington Post denied to WND and Adweek that there was any such change in a policy which, the longer Trump remains in the lead, makes them look like a laughingstock for stubbornly hanging on to an obviously ridiculous policy which now serves no purpose other than to broadcast its bias. Here is the lame excuse provided by the Huffington Post to WND as to how the two Trump stories "slipped" by them and onto their Politics page:
Reality can be brutal, especially political reality as the Huffington Post seems to have found out. Back in July the Huffington Post went all in on the notion that the Donald Trump candidacy would be ephemeral so they could get away with displaying their bias by consigning Trump stories to the entertainment, not politics page. Unfortunately for them, Donald Trump not only lasted through the rest of the summer but he is well in the lead among Republican candidates for the nomination. Obviously at some point, the Huffington Post would be forced to cover Trump like the other candidates and that time appears to be now. However, first let us take a trip back in time to July when the Huffington Post foolishly crawled out on a political limb with this announcement:
Mandates are a predictable liberal solution for problems both real and percieved. The Huffington Post proved it again when it argued for a federal mandate for paid sick leave, claiming a new study offered a “compelling” reason for the law.
The attention grabbing headline from Oct. 21, claimed, “Flu Rate Would Decline Significantly If the U.S. Mandated Paid Sick Leave.”
The numbers beg to differ. “Significantly.”
“You’re my zucchini, sweetie.”
That could be a common term of endearment, if you believe this ridiculous article from the Huffington Post.
“Wait,” you say, “What are you talking about, again?”
Oh, didn’t you know? There’s now dozens of ways to tell people what gender and sexuality you are -- according to the left, that is.
We’ve time and again seen the media receive their messaging orders - and then march off all mouthing the Leftist talking point(s) of the day. Washington, D.C.-based talk radio host Chris Plante quotes a military friend of his describing the media not as a gaggle, but as a centipede. Multitudinous legs in coordinated movement - all headed in the same direction.
Talk radio impresario Rush Limbaugh has long made audio cavalcades of this media mal-practice a routine feature of his show. He strings together “media montages” - innumerable examples of “reporters” magically all arriving at the exact same Leftist term(s) to describe the news of the day.
In the aftermath of the murderous rampages like the recent one in Oregon, some weep for the dead and pray for the wounded. Others, such as the Huffington Post feminist Soraya Chemaly, exploit such barbaric acts of violence to push their own political narratives. As stated in Chemaly’s headline, the real culprit behind mass shootings like the one in Oregon is “Masculinity, Masculinity, Masculinity.”
As if we don’t get enough of Kanye West’s nonsensical comments (president Yeezus 2020 anyone?), the rapper recently made another “important” announcement.
According to a candid two-hour interview with SHOW studio, Mr. Kardashian is up in arms with the fashion industry for being discriminatory against him. This isn’t a “hands up don’t shoot,” #blacklivesmatter discrimination though. West complained the fashion industry discriminated against him because he isn’t gay. Oh the irony.
The old journalism adage of “If it bleeds, it leads,” is a well-known one. A modern innovation of that saying, to suit the race-obsessed liberal sports media hell-bent on stoking the flames of racial hatred, might be: “If it’s not bleeding, poke it, and see what happens.” Such a mentality was clearly in use when USA Today writer Jorge Ortiz penned an article titled “Baseball’s culture clash: Vast majority of brawls involve players of different ethnicities.”
Ultra-lefty actress and comedian Margaret Cho is feeling the Bern. And apparently her choice to support self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders caused her great anguish because she is also an adoring Hilary Clinton fan.
Recently on HuffPost Live, Cho was asked if she had any intentions to run for office someday.
“I’m not sure if I have the, uh, moral fiber and fortitude and integrity that it would take to be a real politician and you know by real politician I mean somebody like, um, Senator Sanders or of course the wonderful Hilary Clinton,” Cho responded.
