Skewed HuffPost Reporting Leads to Hate

The Huffington Post has recently condensed all their Iran related articles into one long one and here is a part of it from this morning:

This is a classic case of following the letter of the article if not the spirit. If you read the original story you will find that it was in fact one unnamed official, so we have no idea who it was. Even on Ynet it was not headlined in this manner. Also of note is that the official is not endorsing anything that America hasn't already done not only to Iraq but also to North Korea. No matter which way you slice it, a non story.

That being said, I wouldn't care so much about it if the Huffington Posters didn't immediately pick up upon the story to make bigoted comments about Israelis, including blatant anti-Semitism.

Well done Huffington Post editors. You got exactly what you wanted.

Update: Oh, and as Huffington Poster "VirginiaJeff" pointed out, not a single person had a problem with America using food sanctions as an incentive to stop North Korea's nuclear program. Could it be because America isn't the Jewish state? Or am I just being paranoid?

  1. Beyond ignorant. so-called Liberals who claim to be so open minded just believe anything they read. Shameful.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
