HuffPost, your hypocrisy is showing. As the 2019 World Economic Forum (WEF) meetings began in Davos, Switzerland, the left-wing HuffPost blasted the gathering. This was a complete 180 for the liberal outlet, which has strongly supported and participated in Davos in the past.
More than a year after Huffington Post co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington stepped down from her position, the staff at the HuffPost website is preparing to go on a seven-week, 23-city bus tour to “Listen to America” as part of an attempt to enhance its “new, less-partisan image.” Lydia Polgreen, a former editor with the New York Times and the current editor-in-chief of the site, announced on Thursday, July 13, that the purpose of the tour is to learn about people in America by traveling across the country this autumn.
What will Huffington Post be like without its branded namesake Arianna Huffington? The left’s most-influential intersection of anti-conservative propaganda, fluff, crazy and puppy pictures needs a new boss. The founder of a site so big that it carries her name is moving on “to build Thrive Global, a new lifestyle, health and wellness site.” It’s easy to assume this new site will push her agenda that people need more sleep. (No, I’m not making this up.)
In a move to eliminate any possibility that the Huffington Post might be a “fair and balanced” news website, the liberal organization has begun adding a harsh message at the bottom of every article dealing with Donald Trump, the GOP front-runner in this year's presidential contest.
The addendum reads: “Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslins -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.”
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly had some tough words for “Huffington Post” Editor and Chief Arianna Huffington on “The O’Reilly Factor” on March 25.
Huffington appeared on Fox News to promote her new book and was met with some harsh words from O’Reilly who criticized her website arguing that it needed “to be a little more fair” and that liberals should stop reflexively defending President Obama. [See video below.]
NewsBusters has chronicled for years the perilously liberal views of television producer Aaron Sorkin.
That's why it was rather surprising to read in Mother Jones that he told a gathering hosted by HBO and The New Republic Wednesday that the Huffington Post helps power "a genuinely damaging force in our culture":
On Monday, the perilously liberal Huffington Post put the following headline on its front page:
6 Famous Documentaries That Were Shockingly Full Of Sh*t
Unbelievably, one of the films totally lambasted in the piece was - wait for it! - Bill Maher's "Religulous" from 2008 (serious vulgarity alert):
Since the Huffington Post was first launched, NewsBusters has been warning people to skeptically view anything published by the disturbingly liberal website.
President Obama somewhat agrees, for according to The Hill, he told House Democrats he met with Wednesday "not to believe everything you read in The Huffington Post."
How many more erstwhile apologists can President Obama lose before he's rendered little more than a figurehead?
Two more just joined the forlorn procession -- left-wing queen bee Arianna Huffington and disgraced former New York governor turned itinerant political commentator Eliot Spitzer. (Audio clips after the jump)
Arianna Huffington got a much-needed education about 501(c)(4)s Sunday.
When she claimed during an ABC This Week discussion about the Internal Revenue Service scandal that Crossroads GPS shouldn't have qualified because "it was all about politics," former George W. Bush senior advisor Karl Rove struck back (video follows with transcript and commentary):
