The Huffington Post Is Obsessed

Perhaps it was the recent editorial change at the Huffington Post, but their coverage of the Middle East has become more blatantly biased than ever. Here's our case.

As you may or may not be aware, the Palestinian Authority is trying yet again to improve their status at the UN as a way to avoid negotiating a last peace and Israel is opposing that. The Huffington Post, for some reason, thinks this news is about a thousand times more important than anything else in the world today. Check out today's screaming headline:

And the Huffington Post published not one, not two, not three, not four, not five but six articles about the bid in a 24 hour period. If you click on the links, you will see that the HP is going through each European country and publishing a new article based on how it thinks that country will vote. The countries haven't even voted yet, but for some reason the HP feels each one deserves its own article.

Here's all the article headlines, just so you can get a better idea of how much the HP loves this topic:

Can you say obsessed?
