Posted on 03/31/2011 9:42:28 AM PDT by Nachum
Following its controversial decision to ban Andrew Breitbart from publishing articles at its front page, the Huffington Post has found itself in quite a pickle now that one of its regular contributors, comedian Bill Maher, made disgustingly vulgar references to former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
As NewsBusters previously reported, Breitbart made some comments about President Obama's former green czar Van Jones that precipitated the following hypocritical statement from HuffPo spokesman Mario Ruiz last Thursday (readers are warned of vulgar content in full article):
The Huffington Post is committed to fostering a lively and often provocative debate about the issues of the day and encourages a wide range of voices from all perspectives to participate. Andrew Brietbarts [sic] false ad hominem attack on Van Jones in The Daily Caller violates the tenets of debate and civil discourse we have strived for since the day we launched. As a result, we will no longer feature his posts on the front page.

Observe closely if you've ever wondered what shameless looks like.
That vile word is more descriptive of Ms Huffnpuff than Gov.Palin....
Hey, perhaps HP will publish one of us if we broadcasted that Nancy Pelosy is a "t*** and a c***."
I canceled my HBO today and I suggest all good conservatives do the same. There is nothing they provide that can’t be obtained elsewhere for less, and they are actively funding a lot of filth and marxist propaganda.
At least the leftist media will no longer be able to pass Maher off as a reputable journalist. Like all rabid, leftist ideologues, he is scum.
There is nothing too gross for Huffpo
