    "This is spooky, to me this is extremely spooky"
    The Huffington Post has sensationally censored an article pertaining to questions about Hillary Clinton’s health and banned the journalist who wrote it from posting on their website altogether.

    David Seaman penned a commentary piece discussing questions surrounding Hillary’s health problems on Sunday. The story included a link to my viral video about the subject, which now has over 3.5 million views.

    The post, which had been trending at number 3 on the website, was deleted within hours and Seaman’s posting rights were completely revoked.

    The link now just contains an editor’s note stating, “This post is no longer available on the Huffington Post.”

    The Huff Post deleted the article despite the fact that pieces questioning John McCain’s health were heavily featured on the website in 2008.

    The left-wing news outlet also posted an article today speculating on Donald Trump contracting cancer, but its author was not banned. The double standard is brazen.

    Other leftist news outlets, most recently the Guardian, have also featured my video without the article immediately being deleted.

    It appears as though the main reason for the article being deleted was the fact that Seaman didn’t automatically dismiss the entire issue as a “conspiracy theory” in line with the rest of the pro-Hillary media.

    In a YouTube video posted in response to the deletion of the article, Seaman described the censorship as “chilling” and “Orwellian”.


    “Both of my articles have been pulled without notice of any kind, just completely deleted from the Internet, and both of those articles mentioned Hillary’s health,” states Seaman.

    “That video that Paul Watson put up has been viewed more than 3.5 million times, so it was a very newsworthy thing for me to link out to,” noted Seaman, adding that he should have been able to link to it without having his account revoked.

    “I’ve filed hundreds of stories over the years as a journalist and I’ve never had anything like this happen….I’ve never experienced this,” remarked Seaman, adding that he was now seeking legal counsel.

    “This is spooky, to me this is extremely spooky – I don’t like it,” he added, pointing to how the media has dispensed with any notion of balance to jump on Trump while giving Hillary a free pass.

    “They’re deleting and censoring commentary on her health – why is that?” asked Seaman. “Do they not want more people to watch that video on YouTube, is that what’s going on here?”

    In a related development, Donald Trump officially challenged Hillary Clinton to release her full medical records, but the Clinton campaign almost immediately refused to do so.

    The video that Seaman linked to in his now deleted article is embedded below.

    I don't understand, are you saying a privately owned website, chose to delete a post by a writer? How is this different from any other privately owned website?

    Huffington Post is a blog, not journalism, so it isn't some sort of proof that freedom of the press is under attack.

    But...their bloggers should probably be allowed to write about whatever they want, without fear of being fired. I can see them wanting to remove a story, but for the blogger to be fired--seems like bullshit. They should have at least addressed why the post was removed.

    there is nothing brazen about it, Huffington post ends every Trump article bashing him, they don't pretend to be a impartial, unlike Foxnews

    It's a website that claims to be a news site you fucking imbecile. You know, journalistic integrity and all that? Jesus Christ you're dumb.
