Stories about the hypocrisy and decline of Huffington Post

In an interview clip shown on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Perry told Ed Henry that the president was “the chosen one” sent by God to rule over America. The former Texas governor and Republican presidential rival of Trump used Old Testament kings to make his point.
A new MSM motto may be adapted from an old cliche (that G.W. Bush is famous for messing up), "Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, works for me if our ratings go up!"
The idea that Obama did NOT do anything on LGBT equality is something that HP has been suggesting almost from the very beginning of his first term. The same goes for his record on job creation. At the very moment that his historic decisions were producing their first effects, HP was eagerly joining the GOTP choir that was crying 'Where are the jobs?'.
When Huffington Post moved its comment platform for its in-house conversations mode to a Facebook platform, many HP Posters walked away. A number of them found a new home at the Planet and Daily Kos. Here's why.
Not only has HP now refused to dance with the one who brought them to the party, they are jumping into Mark Zuckerberg's Ferrari and waving back at their community with a champagne glass in hand as they speed away.
"By mandating that all travelers fully expose themselves, we will be providing an atmosphere of humility and vulnerability that will naturally translate into a more civil and entertaining experience, especially for our management staff."
This week, Huffington Post betrayed their membership and their tentative promise to respect the anonymity of their current members by now requiring ALL members to provide verification of their personal identity if they want to post at the site.
The Main Stream Media needs a tight race for the presidency to drive its reader and viewership. So coverage of the President's tax return has been muted because the President puts his money where his mouth is.
That bastion of consistency and unswerving principle, Arianna ("I'm a Right Wing Republican-I'm a Progressive Democrat-I'm Neither!") Huffington, proclaims that since the GOP has been falling down in it's role of attacking Obama's character and campaign, she and HP are taking up that noble cause.
Here are top front page Hacklines (hack headlines) from the rich swamp of corporate tabloidism that now is The Huffington Post.
