Huffington Post Reveals Biased and Inaccurate Headlines

Once again, the Huffington Post editorial staff has decided to abandon all pretension of objectivity and professional journalism in their headlines. You might recall earlier this month, the HP published an article about a price tag attack and described it, in the headline of the article, as "despicable," an adjective which, as I pointed out at the time, could not be used for 100,000 dead in Syria or a Jewish family murdered in their home. Apparently such editorial language is reserved only for graffiti.

Well, today, it happened again:


The Huffington Post couldn't even find a different biased word to skew their headline with, they had to use "despicable" again? Apparently they're not just biased, they're lazy too!

The inner article reveals that an Israeli was arrested by the Israeli police for graffiti on a Christian monastery. But even this article's headline wasn't free of bias:


The Huffington Post completely butchers the facts with this headline. The headline makes it sounds like "Micky Rosenfeld" is the suspect arrested for the graffiti. But if you read the actual article, which apparently no one on the Huffington Post's editorial staff did, you can read the following:
"Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said a 22-year-old man from Bnei Brak, a predominantly Orthodox Jewish town near Tel Aviv, was arrested on Sunday."
What a massive journalistic failure at all levels from the Huffington Post today.

  1. Recently there was a story on HP about Guns and Tampons in the abortion ruling. They completely staged a picture of a elderly women crying saying she was humiliated. I found it odd that this women was around 70 and still having a menstrual cycle. I did a search looking ANYWHERE else for this picture or at least a article. There was none. Zero completely staged. They promote violence, encourage it. The stories are so far left and the people that use the site are as ignorant as HP is.

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.
