Quick HP Bias: Fourth Burnat Article

Well, the Oscars are over and the Palestinian propaganda film didn't win, so you would expect the Huffington Post to move on already from Emad Burnat's temporary detainment in the LAX airport. After all, it already published three articles about it.

But why stop at three when you can do four? The HP covered the "news" of Michael Moore getting mad at Buzzfeed for claiming he "overhyped" Burnat's detainment. No other "news" agency covered this non-story and for good reason. It wasn't a story when it happened, and it isn't a story a week later.

How many more articles will the Huffington Post beat from this dead horse?

  1. I believe it is worse than you think. I count at least 8 articles


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.
