Ever since the Huffington Post linked to "Save Your Heritage" and "Stormfront," I've started to take a look at what they link to in their "Around the Web" sections. These are a series of links after an article that usually go to one of two places: A left-wing blog like "AntiWar" or "Commondreams," or to another newspaper like the LA Times or Yahoo! News.
It's happened again, this time on MJ Rosenberg's article about how to be pro-occupation is to be really anti-Israel:
If you click on that link, you will be taken to the Institute for Historical Review, a website famous for its Holocaust denial. In fact, that was why it was created in the first place.
When we spotted this, we Twittered MJ Rosenberg himself about it and he spoke to the HuffPo. This resulted in the removal of the "Around the Web" section in general from the article. Wasn't that nice of him?
But the question remains: Why would the Huffington Post link to them in the first place? Was it a mistake? Was it intentional?
