  • Huffington Post editor’s tweet sparks FBI investigation

    12/07/2016 6:52:19 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 26 replies
    The FBI is investigating a Huffington Post scribe for joking about “destroying Trump ballots” at a Washington, DC, voting site, the reporter claimed. Nick Baumann said it all began with a joke that the feds didn’t find particularly amusing. On Oct. 31, 2016, Baumann tweeted: “I love my job working at a voting site in washington dc destroying trump ballots.” The next day, he said his tweet was “a joking reference” to an internet conspiracy of a man claiming to be tearing up Trump ballots. Days later, on Nov. 4, Baumann, a senior enterprise editor for the site, said he...

    FULL TITILE:That’s Weird?… Huffington Post Takes Down ‘Hillary Clinton Has Parkinson’s’ Article After Her Collapse at Ground Zero On Sunday morning Bill Robinson posted an article at the Huffington Post titled: “Internet: Hillary Clinton Has Parkinson’s” huffpo-delete-parkinsons Bill Robinson even tweeted about it. Breaking News: Hillary Clinton rushed from 9/11 Memorial with "medical condition." "Internet:Clinton Has Parkinsons" https://t.co/qi4ujNCuyM — Bill Robinson (@RelentlessBill) September 11, 2016 But if you click on the link today you’ll see the article was taken down. The article is still available on Google cache. It sure looks a bit odd that Huffington Post would take this...

    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...

    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”....

    Liberal website entrepreneur Arianna Huffington is emailing mothers, asking them to join an anti-gun group for Mother’s Day. In an email promoting Everytown for Gun Safety, Huffington encourages mothers to join the Bloomberg-funded group. "'Wow. Just wow.' That's all I can think as I watch this movement grow and organize and fight for stronger gun laws in every corner of the country," Huffington writes. "It's simply amazing. And as a mom, I'm so incredibly proud to call myself a member. Moms are on the move! Can you help us expand the size of our movement so that we reach even...

    As it turned out MoDo just dropped by the MOTUS Twilight Nocturne Lounge for a quick pre-pre-party cocktail. Here she is at her second stop at the White House Correspondents' Dinner Weekend Pre-Party at the swanky W hotel: MoDo with New Yorker editor David Remnick and Jane Mayer at the pre-party they hosted.I don’t think I’m letting the cat out of the bag by saying that MoDo’s facial regrading turned out quite well; indeed, she certainly doesn’t look 62 now, like she did when she was 55! Cheek lift, check, brow lift, check, eye lift, check, lips straightened around and...

    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. And if Nelson is not a devout Muslim (who would sanction such savagery) than...

    Did you hear about the tea party that Big Guy held yesterday afternoon? Oddly enough, only Kool-Aid drinkers were invited for tea: Arianna Huffington, Eddie Schultz, Al Sharpton, Rachael Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell. (snip)Chris Matthews was invited butt he and Howard Fineman were apparently off slaying vampires, or hunting Nazis, or something. This is all very confusing because I still remember when “the Bush tax-cuts” were characterized by Big Guy and Big Media as simply “tax cuts for the rich.” ...In other words, if the Bush cuts actually were just “tax cuts for the rich,” then their expiration couldn’t hurt...

    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...

    News Busters ^ | 11/18/2012 | Tom Blumer
    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...

    TAMPA, Fla. — Arianna Huffington currently plans to vote for President Barack Obama in November. 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...
