    HuffPost to publish anti-Trump kicker with all Trump coverage
    By Peter Sterne

    01/28/16 02:13 PM EST

    The Huffington Post has started appending an editor’s note to the bottom of posts about Republican presidential contender Donald Trump, calling him a "racist," a "liar" and a "xenophobe," and reminding readers of his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States.

    “Note to our readers: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.,” reads the note, which was added to an article about Trump’s feud with Fox News published last night. The note also includes links to prior coverage of Trump's comments.

    A Huffington Post spokesperson told POLITICO that the note will be added to all future stories about Trump.

    “Yes, we're planning to add this note to all future stories about Trump," the spokesperson said. "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. In December, The Huffington Post was forced to reverse course and begin covering Trump as a serious presidential candidate."

    P.S.:

    "Huffington Post launches Arabic Edition headed by Muslim Brotherhood partners
    August 4, 2015 3:37 pm By Ralph Sidway

    “[Anas] Fouda, previously an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic (AJA), is managing the [new HuffPo Arabic] website in partnership with his old boss, former AJA director general Wadah Khanfar… Khanfar is the man who made Al Jazeera the Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece that it is today.”

    Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist forces continue spreading their tentacles of influence into and with the aid of American liberal partners."

    I saw that the other night and was wondering what the fuck it was about. I'm not jumping up and down in support of everything Trump does, but I'm not going to be reading the Huffington Post anymore either. It can't be taken seriously. Clinton lied several times regarding government security protocol and she gets a free pass?

    This would be relevant if HuffPo was a reputable journalistic entity. It is certainly not.

    I never understood why people give sites like huff and Alex Jones so much weight. They're closer to the enquirer than a reputable news source. Then again, I'm not sure what a reliable news source is anymore. No one even pretends to objective now a days.

    I used to read HP daily, but since they have taken sides and can't be trusted I can't any longer either

    You know, if you don't like a news source, you don't have to read it.

    There are some more reputable than others but HuffPo is definitely at the bottom.
