  • 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...

    see that Donald Trump (with how many wives and bankruptcies in his past?) appeared at the CPAC conference, hinting that he might run for President on the Republican ticket. With all due regard, I suggest he's the wrong person: We need Arianna Huffington, a woman whose fiscal wizardry and drive we will need after the almost-hero of Altgeld Gardens is voted out of office. I know, I know, many of you are saying that this is a crazy idea, that there are so many better possibilities but hear me out. This week

    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...

    The Blaze ^ | 12/13/10 | Jonathon M. Seidl
    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:

    Arianna Huffington stopped by last night to talk about her new book, Third World America, and what the heck's going on in this country, anyway. When did we forget that what's good for everybody is good for everybody? Ms. Huffington: It's like a country without a middle class. It's a third world America country. You know, it's not good for anybody. It's not even good for the very rich. We're going to be behind Gates protecting their kids from kidnapping with armed guards. It's not good for anyone. And this, which the Huffington Post excerpts and which seemed to divide...

    Sometimes even the seemingly most unreasonable characters as far public policy goes can be reasoned with if the circumstances are right. Just sometimes it takes someone like Steve Forbes to pull it off. On the June 14 broadcast of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Forbes explained that a flat tax might be the medicine that Greece, a country on the fiscal brink needs.

    Arianna Huffington’s liberal gossip site the Huffington Post has been vigorously defending green jobs czar and 9/11 “truther” Van Jones. It turns out that Jones was Huffington’s grassroots political director when she ran for governor in the 2003 recall election. In fact, Jones, a self-described “communist,” thought Huffington was so wonderful he was part of the effort to draft her to run for office. A San Francisco Chronicle article from Sept. 5, 2003 described Jones as Huffington’s “grassroots director.” A Miami Herald article from Aug. 3, 2003, described Jones as a ”Bay Area activist” and “director of the Ella Baker...

    Here's a look behind the scenes during Arianna Huffington's stint co-hosting CNBC's Squawk Box alongside Carl Quintanilla, Becky Quick and Joe Kernen. 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...

    Arianna Huffington's statement that John McCain did not vote for Bush in 2000 has kicked up a fuss, with McCain putting out a statement denying her account. "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...
