    Breitbart ^ | 6/17/16 | Ben Kew
    Full title: Breitbart News was the biggest publisher of political content for the months of May and June, with a lead of nearly 2 million more interactions than the second place Huffington Post. The site came out on top in research conducted by NewsWhip. Besting the competition on a list that also includes CNN, The Hill, and The Guardian, Breitbart News had a total combined 9,098,o13 Twitter and Facebook interactions, of which 89% came from Facebook and 11% from Twitter. Failing to make the top 10 list were outlets such as The New York Times and Fox News, although they...

    Huffington Post ^ | : 09/21/2015 11:46 am EDT | Eric Schmeltzer
    Fiorina's story -- that she went from "Secretary to CEO" -- is more embellishment, than truth. In fact, Fiorina didn't rise from secretarial pool to CEO, like a real world version of "Working Girl." The daughter of the dean of Duke Law School, and top Nixon advisor, she took a part-time job as a secretary, while in law school, and then was put on the management track at AT&T. I worked in the dining hall in college, but I don't go around saying that I rose from burger flipper to Presidential Campaign press secretary. Then there is the now widely...

    The Hill's Ballot Box ^ | July 17, 2015 | Neetzan Zimmerman
    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is hitting back at the Huffington Post for announcing its decision to move Trump coverage from its politics section to entertainment. "Mr. Trump is number one in the unimportant Huffington Post poll, along with all other recently released polls including Reuters, FOX, USA Today/Suffolk University and The Economist,” the Trump campaign said in a statement released Friday afternoon. The campaign slammed the site and its namesake, saying that Trump's tweets clearly betray his dislike for Arianna Huffington and “the money-losing Huffington Post.” "The only clown show in this scenario is the Huffington Post pretending to...

    As Donald Trump continues to rise in Republican presidential primary polls, The Huffington Post announced today that it will suddenly cease coverage of Trump’s campaign as part of its politics coverage. The news comes as a new slew of national polls places Trump at the top of the Republican field, threatening traditional Democratic and Republican interests who hope to keep issues like immigration off the national radar screen. The Huffington Post writes, “After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington...

    PHILADELPHIA – President Obama on Thursday asked wary House Democrats to hold their fire, while the administration negotiates several trade deals opposed by scores of liberal lawmakers. “Keep your powder a little dry,” he told the Democrats assembled here for an annual retreat, according to a source in the closed-door session. "Get informed," Obama also advised, "not by reading The Huffington Post." The president has long sought pacts expanding trade with both Asian and European nations, as well as trade promotion authority, known as "fast-track," from Congress. The issue has sharply divided the Democrats, as centrists tend to support the...

    As the old saying goes: “The fastest way to disappointment is to depend on other people.” That saying is now becoming prevalent in the media world as well, and we largely have the New York Yankees, Arianna Huffington and Glenn Beck to thank for it. Huh? Let me explain… As reported here on Mediaite over the weekend, Fox News contributor Sarah Palin has launched her own eponymous channel for $9.95 per month or $99.95 per year on a new venture called TAPP (which stands for TV App). Her elevator pitch is simple: “Tired of media filters? Well, so am I”....

    Barack Obama doesn’t just have a pen and a telephone, he’s got a hammer and sickle too. The battle lines of the promised Marxist Revolution are being perfected as we go about our daily lives, and Obama’s hammer and sickle will drop on the Western world now that it’s 2014. Obama’s ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’ is only Stage 1 of a breathtaking world takeover plan. Obama and the fomenting-for-revolution Marxists won’t wait until 2016 to deliver their ‘New Socialist USA’. This is just for openers: Emboldened by Barack Obama’s twice-repeated reminder “I have a pen and a telephone” to bypass...

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    The cat is finally out of the bag. A blogger for the liberal Huffington Post has finally admitted that liberal mainstream media outlets made a conscious decision to ignore the Kermit Gosnell abortion-murder trial. In a HuffPost Live segment today on the issue, host Marc Lamont Hill admitted what many pro-life advocates have been thinking: “For what it’s worth, I do think that those of us on the left have made a decision not to cover this trial because we worry that it’ll compromise abortion rights. Whether you agree with abortion or not, I do think there’s a direct connection...

    The horror of the sharia and Islamic culture is monstrous enough, but this media cover-up is truly horrible. It's bad enough that mindless followers of a religious culture engage in these atrocious mandates (it's their religion), but for non-believers (with the influence of a big media voice) to cover up for this brutal ideology is pure evil. These reporters are not believers; what's the excuse for their depraved inhumanity? The writer of this Puff Ho piece is one Sara Nelson, who is based in the UK.

    In recent months, the Huffington Post entered the world of video news with its debut of “HuffPost Live.” One might suspect that it was little more than a video version of the leftist website founded seven years ago by Arianna Huffington. Yet a blog known as HuffWatch has been documenting the content at both websites and has discovered a grim, though unsurprising reality: both Huffington Post and HuffPost Live are repositories of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel vitriol. Leading the charge at HuffPost Live is host/producer Ahmed Shihab-Eldin. Shihab-Eldin’s bio asserts he has Palestinian heritage and is a former producer and co-host...

    In her "Sunday Roundup" post at the site which bears her last name, Arianna Huffington supported that notion that "This week, America finally began questioning the judgment of its generals," but lamented that the scrutiny is over "sexual conduct rather than military conduct." Fine, that's her opinion. But what's really odd is that she apparently thought that referencing a headline found at the Onion would be seen by readers as meaningful support for her argument (HT to a NewsBusters tipster): If our failed military strategy in Afghanistan had gotten half the airtime of Petraeus' failed marital strategy in Tampa, there...

Huffington told The Daily Caller, however, that she has been disappointed by Obama’s first term and would consider voting for Mitt Romney if the Republican candidate advocates an end to U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan. “My vote does not depend on a particular party, like, I’m not reflexively voting a particular party, but I will vote for Obama,” Huffington told TheDC during a sit-down interview following an event about American entrepreneurs and job creators she hosted in Tampa on Wednesday. Huffington reflected on her disappointment...

    Huffington Post chose some rather odd rhetoric to identify Romney's Jewish fans that were eager to get the candidate's photo at a Wednesday appearance. The Aug. 8 HuffPo posting carries the odd headline, "Mitt Romney's Motorcade Chased By Pack Of Orthodox Jews." Apparently a wedding party made up of Orthodox Jews spied Mitt Romney's motorcade arriving at the hotel where their celebration was being held and a group of them ran to the procession hoping to get photos of the GOP candidate. Huffington Post highlighted the story as related by a member of the Romney press pool but the border-line
  • Fox News Viewers Least Informed? Why You Should Be Skeptical

    A recent Huffington Post article highlighted research findings which suggest that Fox News viewers are less informed than all other news consumers. Researchers from Farleigh Dickinson University conducted a nationwide phone poll asking nine political knowledge questions, four on international issues and five on domestic issues. The results of the survey show that someone who watches Fox News would only be able to answer 1.04 questions on domestic policy which is lower than NPR listeners 1.51 and people only watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart 1.42. Does this mean that Fox News viewers must be less politically sophisticated than...

    The good news for Arianna Huffington is that she gets to keep her share of the $315 million that AOL shelled out for her website. The bad news is her duties as editrix of the once-mighty Web conglomerate are being scaled back. Way back. When AOL boss Tim Armstrong announced he was adding the Huffington Post to the company’s stable of websites, he crowned the liberal doyenne editor of all properties, including TechCrunch,, MovieFone and MapQuest. That announcement rubbed several longtime company journalists the wrong way, as Huffington has never been known for her diplomatic skills.

"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...

She even goes as far as saying that Obama needs ‘intense therapy’ so that he can explain to himself why he agreed...

    Arianna Huffington and the liberal online juggernaut bearing her name have been tough on a lot of Republican presidential candidates, but when it comes to Newt Gingrich, the knife has cut a little deeper. Since the former House speaker emerged as the front-runner for the GOP nomination, Huffington has used her media megaphone — including the 37 million-visitor-a-month Huffington Post — to excoriate him as an insincere, self-serving flip-flopper, sometimes in biting personal terms.

Huffington, speaking alongside AOL chief Tim Armstrong at PaidContent’s 2011 Conference in New York on Thursday, dismissed the notion that all bloggers should be paid, given the wide platform HuffPo gives them.

    Any business owner who uses largely unpaid labor, with a handful of underpaid, nonunion employees, to build a company that is sold for a few hundred million dollars, no matter how he or she is introduced to you on the television screen, is not a liberal or a progressive. Those who take advantage of workers, whatever their outward ideological veneer, to make profits of that magnitude are charter members of the exploitative class. Dust off your Karl Marx.

    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...

    While you’re reading all those HuffPo articles filled with hand-wringing sanctimony about the current state of Republican political discourse, keep in mind that according to New York Magazine, the founder of the Huffington Post filmed a role in a sci-fi fantasy film where the two heroes of the film attempt to rid the world of evil by assassinating President George W. Bush: The two soldiers’ relationship blossoms, and Butch begins to get to know his lover’s family. But after he inadvertently draws attention to their ancestral home, disaster strikes. This tragedy radicalizes the pair and they become convinced that the...

    While light years away from the worldview of most Americans and decidedly far left from the start, the Huffington Post was at least a respectable blog in its formative years. How the times have changed: Now, President Obama’s suggested reading for college students has added shockingly sleazy tabloid sections; one entitled, Sex and the other, Celebrity Skin. Just above the shameless and sordid content in both tabloid sections is Huffingtons ever-present byline, “Some News Is So Big It Needs Its Own Page”. So what’s the “big news” so deserving of its own page? Here are just a few examples: Neil...

    Ex-Huffington Post CEO joins Glenn Beck’s siteBy Michael Calderone Thu Jan 6, 12:25 pm ET The left-leaning Huffington Post and Glenn Beck's recently launched news site, The Blaze, don't have a lot in common politically. But Betsy Morgan, who was previously chief executive of the Huffington Post, has been named president of the conservative TV and radio star's "four month-old information network." Morgan's role will be to build The Blaze into the "premiere digital network curating content, community and debate and further leveraging Beck's loyal audience," according to a release. Media watchers may be surprised by the move, but Morgan...

    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...

    Yes, But However! ^ | December 13, 2010 | John Romano
    In April of 2009, Huffington Post blogger and Columbia professor David Epstein wrote an editorial entitled “It’s the Abuse of Trust, Stupid.” Ironically, the same Huffington Post blogger and Columbia professor was recently arrested for having sex with his 24 year old daughter. Mr. Epstein’s editorials for the Huffington Post covered a wide range of topics from Dick Cheney and torture to Sarah Palin and the 2008 election cycle. His posts are full of leftist vitriol and sanctimonious drivel. He is a Columbia professor, after all. Mr. Epstein’s articles are good for such biting rhetoric as “so when Dick (aptly...

    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:

    Author and Huffington Post co-founder Ariana Huffington said that the tremendous anger in the United States today is not a product of just the right or the left, and that neither political party stands to benefit from it. Huffington, speaking in a panel of authors and journalists on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, said people are sensing doom, and that this frustration can threaten American stability. "It's beyond left and right anger. No party can claim that it really is going to ultimately benefit them because it's very unpredictable and potentially very dangerous for our political stability,"
