Another Biased Anti-Geller Headline

The Huffington Post loves providing advertising for Pamela Geller's advertising campaigns. This time they have done it in a passive aggressive manner complete with biased headline:


Where is the bias here? Geller's ads are not anti-Muslim.

Muslims are people who follow a religion.

Atheist billboards that target religion in general manage to be free of editorializing:

That's the Huffington Post for you, always trying to stir up hate and anger.
