  • Arianna Huffington: President's bin Laden ad "despicable"

    (CBS News) Arianna Huffington, founder and editor-in-chief of the The Huffington Post, called the Obama campaign's decision to tout the assassination of Osama bin Laden in a campaign advertisement "despicable." The ad questions whether presidential candidate Mitt Romney would have ordered the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. "I don't think there should be an ad about that," Huffington said Monday on "CBS This Morning." "I think it's one thing to celebrate the fact that they did such a great job (with television specials). All that is perfectly legitimate. But to turn it into a campaign ad is one of...

    The reality of a bad economic situation is beginning to set in on the left and some of the more honest lefties are now admitting that there isn’t a hopeful outlook for Obama’s re-election. I’ve included the entire interview of Arianna Huffington with LarryO because of not only the way she trashes Obama and his renewed focus on jobs, but also the way that she talks about how disenfranchised people on the left feel with this debt deal. She even goes as far as saying that Obama needs ‘intense therapy’ so that he can explain to himself why he agreed...

    Joining our growing list of media members willing to flat out lie on national television to advance their political agendas is Arianna Huffington who falsely claimed this week that securities firm JPMorgan warned its clients the debt ceiling agreement "is going to reduce our growth by a point-and-a-half." Such was dishonestly said during a segment of CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" aired Sunday (video follows with transcript and commentary): FAREED ZAKARIA, HOST: Now, you look at this and you say - I heard you somewhere say, if Obama thought he was playing for independence by being the grown-up in the middle,...

    Arianna Huffington sat down with The New York Times Magazine (you will recall, of course, the the NYT’s executive editor, Bill Keller, has made it quite clear that he’s none to happy with the Huffington Post’s method of aggregating content) to discuss pleasant topics like how her father, a former newspaperman, would feel about accusations that her site is responsible for that whole death of print thing we keep reading about in newspapers. The magazine broached another contentious and persistent criticism the Huffington Post has been contending with since it’s inception, and especially

    Once the flagship of Internet services, AOL now occupies the corner booth in the Internet flea market. In an attempt to revive its fall from the stars, AOL has purchased the Huffington Post and anointed Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the Huffington Post, president and editor-in-chief of the new and improved AOL. What's that, you say? "Forgive them, for they know not what they do." Aha, but there is silver to be made by joining the "dark side" and it doesn't get any darker then the loony-left Huffington Post. "Hmm, do I smell George Soros lurking somewhere behind this?" It would...

    CNSNews.com) - The announcement early Monday morning that America Online (AOL) is buying Arianna Huffington’s liberal Web site, The Huffington Post, for $315 million -- $300 million in cash -- left at least one conservative outraged. “This proves AOL News has lost its mind,” said L. Brent Bozell III, president of the Media Research Center. “They must be in such dire straits that they’ve been blinded by the millions and think an acquisition of The Huffington Post is worth sacrificing credibility and objectivity,” Bozell said. "AOL News is fooling only itself in thinking there is no journalistic conflict in merging...

    First, let me congratulate Arianna Huffington on selling The Huffington Post to AOL for a reported $315 million. Isn't America a great place? Arianna came up with a great business model. Create a place where liberals could tell each other how smart they were, where they could write blog posts without being paid, and where they could create a community of commenters who routinely attacked the evil Republicans...and then sell out for mucho dinero. It always amazed me that HuffPo bloggers (not the handful of well paid staffers, but the great unwashed) thought they were so special by being allowed...

    The show is called “Left, Right & Center,” although a more appropriate title would probably be “Far Left, Right, Progressive & Democrat” with its current cast of Robert Scheer, Tony Blankley, Arianna Huffington and Matt Miller. But despite the title of the program, don’t use those partisan labels around Huffington. On the Dec. 24 broadcast of KCRW’s “Left, Right & Center,” Huffington complained that the use of the political terms “left,” “right” or “left-wing” is preventing policymakers from solving “problems” because of the connotation tied to each of them. “Well, I actually feel that it would make a huge difference...

    For a small moment on this morning’s “Morning Joe,” Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington echoed a common conservative prediction over the last two years: President Obama says, or promises, one thing and does another. That prediction was especially true when, after the 2008 election, many conservatives predicted all the “change” promised by Obama would be hard to deliver. It seems liberals are now understanding that’s the case. Huffington aired her grievances today, saying that Obama has fallen into a “pattern” of saying one thing and doing another. “He proposed and accepted something he’s been opposing for years,” she said:

At the end of the 3-hour show, the conversation turned to the media and Huffington's site with Quintanilla saying, "The knock against the aggregators is that they don't help pay for journalism and journalism is expensive to produce." Huffington told them what she told us yesterday, that 30% of Huffington Post content is original, meaning 70% is from somewhere else. She then changed the subject to blogging and tried to get the Squawkers to work for her site,...

    Two Hollywood actors who dined with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in early 2001 at actress Candice Bergen's home confirmed reports that he told the assembled group he did not vote for George W. Bush in the 2000 election, but McCain denied the claim at a news conference. In separate phone interviews, Bradley Whitford and Richard Schiff -- both of whom starred in television's "The West Wing" -- said late Thursday night that the senator made the remarks after he spoke at length about his reservations about Bush becoming president. Liberal blogger Arianna Huffington first wrote about the incident Monday, asserting...

"It's not true," McCain spokesperson Tucker Bounds, told the Washington Post, adding, "I ask you to consider the source." Huffington replied, "By all means!" Huffington is standing by her story, which she says she kept confidential for nearly eight years. At a reading and book-signing event Monday night at Washington's Politics & Prose Bookstore, Huffington told her audience that Senator McCain and his wife, Cindy, "divulged" their voting decision to her at a...

    Over the last seven years, the lunatic fringe in control of the Republican Party -- the people who believe in torture but don't believe in evolution -- have hijacked our democracy, aided and abetted by the news media. The heart of the problem is not the bias of Fox News or the blowhards on AM talk radio but a mainstream media that has completely internalized how the right frames all political debate. The right-wing message has become a part of the news media's DNA. The latest confirmation came with this week's announcement that Tony Snow, formerly a host at Fox...

And the media seem intent on confirming this point again and...

    With Mike Huckabee's continuing surge, the Republican Party now has an Iowa front-runner whose religious beliefs are virtually identical to those of George Bush. He's anti-choice, born-again, against gay-marriage, and gets political advice directly from God. So why is the Republican establishment suddenly in a state of near-apoplexy about Mike Huckabee? Shouldn't they be happy? They've been cultivating evangelicals and fundamentalists for 30 years. Now they finally have a candidate who's truly part of the movement. So what's the problem? Actually, that is the problem. The evangelical crowd was fine when it was just a resource to be cynically exploited...

    While making room for a few dissenting voices in addition to a long list of lefty contributors, one has to wonder: just how big is the Huffington Post's tent? Did founder Arianna Huffington intend to include a writer who espouses the viewpoints of fringe extremist Lyndon LaRouche? Or did Air America Radio co-founder Sheldon Drobny somehow sneak in the back door? However he did it, Sheldon's now able to use the HuffPo to "mainstream" himself, since his previous associations make Arianna's site appear nearly conservative by comparison. And the site even includes the latest version of his everchanging biography. Someday,...

    DRIVING MISS ARIANNA By Michelle Malkin   ·   September 17, 2005 08:14 AM The HuffMobile Reader Doug, who posts at FreeRepublic.com, sent this photo, which he took while covering the Sierra Club's national summit in San Francisco last weekend. The handsome, full-size sport utility vehicle pictured above is a Chevy Suburban. It was sent by the anti-SUV environmental puritans of the Sierra Club to pick up fellow, eco-zealot Arianna Huffington, who gave rousing, Bush-bashing, closing remarks at the eco-summit. Yes, Arianna "Why I Drive a Toyota Prius" Huffington. Yes, Arianna "SUV drivers enable terrorism" Huffington. I interviewed Sierra Club national spokesman...

    Green pacifict geeks should do as hypocrite high-rollers AlGore and Arianna say, not as they do. Both were in San Franciso last weekend at a Green vehicle event pitching hybrid cars (gas/electric combination) yet both were chauffered in BIG GAS-GUZZLING, GLOBAL-WARMING SUVs. They really stepped in this one and DFU has documented it well--and got the word out to MANY talk shows in addition to Mr. KABC including Tony Snow, Mark Levin, Michael Graham, Melanie Morgan, Roger Hedgecock and Al Rantel. And, a major syndicated Conservative columnist has responded to DFU's email and is trying to get some answers from...

    Automakers show hybrid vehicles to Sierra Club Conventioneers test gas-electrics September 10, 2005 BY TERENCE CHEA ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO -- Three major automakers unveiled their latest hybrid cars and technology at an environmental conference Friday, promoting their most fuel-efficient vehicles as gasoline prices soar in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Ford Motor Co., Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. brought their hybrid vehicles, which run on a combination of gasoline and electricity, to the first national convention of the Sierra Club, the country's largest environmental organization. Environmentalists have criticized the auto industry for failing to produce more fuel-efficient...

    Rage Against the Machine Appeared on the Tech Central Station website at www.techcentralstation.com Author(s): Kenneth Green, Director, Risk and Environment Studies, The Fraser Institute Email: keng@fraserinstitute.ca Release Date : February 18, 2003 The war on SUV owners has reached a fever pitch of late, with ad campaigns, columnists, and star-studded advertorials raging against the machines. Now, everyone is entitled to an opinion, and far be it from me to presume that celebrities are too empty-headed to actually understand complicated environmental issues like global warming. Let’s assume that actresses like Barbra Streisand, and columnists like Arianna Huffington have studied the theory...

    She walked right by me. I ran to borrow a camera. From across the street, I caught Arianna Huffington in the Chevy Suburban that brought her to and from the airport. She was keynote speaker last Sunday at the Sierra Club Summit at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It's a dark photo, but there is no doubt that it is her. It has been admitted by the editor of the Huffington Post. Arianna, of course, blames the Sierra Club for providing this ride for her. Gee, Arianna, if you were upset, you didn't have to get in the vehicle....

    <p>FReepers, sometimes the other side just makes it so easy for us. My original report regarding the Sierra Club Summit is linked above.</p> <p>After giving a stirring speech on saving the planet, Arianna Huffington walked right past me outside. A friend was able to take this photo of her Chevrolet Suburban waiting for her across the street. She parked across the street rather than being dropped off next to the hyrbrid vehicles that were showcased in front of the Sierra Club Summit. She didn't dare get dropped off in front of her environmentalist pals at the Moscone Center building where she was speaking.</p>

    Arianna Huffington: London: Bush’s “Flypaper Theory” is Blown to Pieces Arianna HuffingtonFri Jul 8, 1:30 AM ET Well, there goes that theory... Odds are we probably won’t be hearing for a while the Bush mantra that the reason we're fighting them over in Iraq is so we don't have to fight them here at home. For the last few months, this ludicrous shibboleth has been the president’s go-to line -- his latest rationale for slogging on in Iraq. Here he was on July 4th: "We're taking the fight to the terrorists abroad so we do not have to face them...

    The Huffington Post, an Internet blog that debuted May 9 after a campaign that would have delighted P.T. Barnum, makes me nostalgic for the good old days of journalism. It isn't that its founder, Arianna Huffington (who named it for herself in true Hollywood "enough about me, not what do YOU think about me" fashion) doesn't have every right to join the increasingly clogged blog superhighway. Rather, this blog has an agenda and speaks mostly to people who already believe what most of its writers say. In The Huffington Post, the musical genius Quincy Jones explains that Michael Jackson's problem...
