Immediately After Trump Won New Hampshire, Huffington Post Imploded In A Very Public Way

The liberal news outlet The Huffington Post did not hold back in expressing what it thought of Donald Trump’s victory in Tuesday night’s Republican New Hampshire primary.

In bold red letters, its headline read “NH Goes Racists, Sexist, Xenophobic,” in reference to Trump’s nearly 20 point trouncing of his closest rival in the field.

“The Huffington Post had announced last month that each of its stories on Trump would feature an editor’s note calling the candidate a ‘liar,’ ‘racist’ and ‘xenophobe,’” TheBlaze reported

The outlet explained its reason to Politico: “Yes, we’re planning to add this note to all future stories about Trump. No other candidate has called for banning 1.6 billion people from the country! If any other candidate makes such a proposal, we’ll append a note under pieces about them.”

“The Huffington Post has struggled with how to cover Trump’s presidential campaign. Last summer, it announced that it would publish stories about Trump in its ‘Entertainment’ section rather than its ‘Politics’ section. This arrangement became increasingly untenable as Trump became the Republican front-runner,” Politico reported, adding, “In December, The Huffington Post was forced to reverse course and begin covering Trump as a serious presidential candidate.”

In its New Hampshire primary election night coverage, the Post reported what it believes is a thorough line in the Trump and Bernie Sanders candidacies: “The message from New Hampshire was clear: Voters fed up with Democrats and Republicans alike desire a politically incorrect outsider, one not beholden to special interests or rich donors, one who can actually break the perpetual gridlock in Washington.”

Something Horrible Was Just Released About Hillary Clinton, And Mainstream Media Is Silencing It

Not one, but two Republican candidates would defeat Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll that shows more voters view Clinton unfavorably than support her.

The Huffington Post-Morning Consult poll of 2047 registered voters was released Wednesday. As of Thursday, a Google search shows no reports by the major media outlets on the poll, taken from Dec. 3 – Dec. 7.

The poll shows both Donald Trump and Ben Carson beating Clinton 45 to 40 percent. The poll has a margin of error of only plus or minus two percent.

The new poll shows Trump far out in front of his opponents. Trump drew the support of 41 percent of the Republican voters surveyed. Carson was second at 12 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was at 10 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was at seven percent. The rest of the GOP field polled below five percent.

In head-to-head matchups against Clinton, Rubio tops Clinton 41-40; Clinton ties former Fla. Gov. Jeb Bush at 41-41; Clinton ties N.J. Gov. Chris Christie at 40-40, and Clinton beats Cruz 42-40. All those margins are within the poll’s margin of error.

Do you support Donald Trump? Like the page:

Bush is the only other candidate to join Clinton with an unfavorable rating above 50 percent, coming in at 53 percent.

The poll also showed that 59 percent of those surveyed disapprove of President Obama’s performance, and 74 percent said the country is on the wrong track.

The media silence about the poll’s numbers comes two days after the Huffington Post, which originally said it would cover Trump’s campaign in its entertainment section, said it would treat the Trump campaign as news. However, that news will come with a strong bias, according to a post from Arianna Huffington.

“We’ll not only be covering the ways Trump’s campaign is unique in recent American politics, but also the disastrous impact it continues to have on his fellow candidates — and the national conversation,” she wrote.

Watch: Liberal Writer Gets Taken To School For His Treatment Of Trump By Unexpected Source

Huffington Post’s decision to categorize any coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign as entertainment instead of news sparked widespread criticism of the left-leaning site. In a recent appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Thursday, the outlet’s chief White House correspondent received yet another dressing down from co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Sam Stein said of the divisive Trump: “I think we treat him with a bit more seriousness than he deserves, as someone who comments about, you know, rapist Mexicans, and makes fun of John McCain’s service and talks about menstruation.”

Brzezinski interrupted, asking her guest if his site covers Trump as news or entertainment.

“We cover him on our front page,” he acknowledged, “—as entertainment.”

The host shot back that she thinks that policy is “a mistake.”

Urging all involved to “take a breath here,” Stein concluded that a Trump presidency is a novel idea to consider.

Just as with Newt Gingrich’s early lead in the 2012 Republican presidential primary, however, he concluded that “it’s fun to conjure up images of Trump in his pajamas at the Oval Office tweeting late at night, all right, but it’s not going to happen.”

When Brzezinski noted that Stein’s employer does not relegate coverage of other candidates with little chance of winning a general election, he responded: “I’m not saying ignore Trump. I’m saying there are bigger themes we can derive from what he’s doing.”

Exactly what Trump is doing, he opined, is “using this platform to essentially build his own brand.”

Brzezinski called the site’s stance “arrogant and condescending,” charges Stein said he wanted to address in an off-air conversation.

“We’ll talk later about this,” he said.

“Yeah, we will,” Brzezinski confirmed.

Huffington Post Thought It Could Mock Trump. Guess Who Just Got The Last Laugh.

Adding an unmistakable dose of opinion into its coverage of the Republican presidential primary and current front-runner Donald Trump, Huffington Post announced Friday that it would no longer categorize such stories as news. A statement on the site explained:

After watching and listening to Donald trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.

Despite the fact that Trump continues to dominate fellow candidates in nationwide polling, HuffPo has decided to unilaterally declare his entire campaign a publicity stunt. Of course, there is little debate regarding the brash billionaire’s ability to attract attention. In fact, he did so in reaction to the recent media snub.

The Trump campaign released a statement Friday pointing out the fact that he came out on top “in the unimportant Huffington Post poll” as well as in several other recent surveys.

“The only clown show in this scenario is the Huffington Post pretending to be a legitimate news source,” his statement continued. “Mr. Trump is not focused on being covered by a glorified blog. He is focused on Making America Great Again.”

Houston Mayor Caught Lying To Huffington Post

Amanda Terkel wrote a story for the Huffington Post claiming that the daughter of the lesbian mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, was denied  a driver’s license because she has two moms. However, this was subsequently shown to be false according to a Huffington Post update.

Parker has recently become more well known nationally for subpoenaing sermons related to homosexuality or the equal rights ordinance passed by the city.

The Huffington Post shared the following tweet from Annise Parker:

Another tweet by Parker followed:

The claims by the mayor were shown to be false according to this Huffington Post update:

UPDATE: 5:15 p.m. — DPS Press Secretary Tom Vinger took issue with Parker’s recollection of events, writing in a statement, “All individuals applying for their first Texas driver license must provide a variety of documents to prove their identity, Social Security Number, U.S. citizenship or lawful presence status, and Texas residency. In this case, the adult applicant did not initially present sufficient documentation to prove residency. Once she provided the required documentation, she was able to complete the transaction. There is no indication that any delay in the process was related to same-sex marriage.

Mayor Parker did not respond to several requests for comment, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
