On August 19, HuffPost published the following item near the top of its front page - as "news":
An excerpt from this top-line "news" story:
"He's being a f*cking dick, and he's probably a piece of crap, but it's also on those platforms," Huebel said of The Fat Jew in a Tuesday conversation with HuffPost. [...] "I think the issue that's really bad about it is that [The Fat Jew] is profiting off of it," explained Scheer. "He's not just a thief -- he's actually making money off of people's stuff."Is it shocking that HuffPost would publish such an inflammatory, anti-Semitic screed on its front page, as "news"? Which uses the same old meme, that Jews are thieving, greedy, conniving, subversive charlatans? Not exactly.
This is part of the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel venom that HuffPost has been publishing for at least the past six years, as HUFF-WATCH has been meticulously documenting. A (small) sampling:
Insofar as HuffPost enabling lunatics to launch such inflammatory ad hominem attacks against anyone else (putting aside the anti-Semitic venom for a moment), it's also worth recalling that when Andrew Breitbart, HuffPost's co-founder, responded in another publication to one of its resident bloggers calling him a racist, Arianna's top minions threw down the hammer, and kicked Andrew off the site. Their justification:
"Andrew Brietbart’s ad hominem attack on Van Jones in The Daily Caller [...] violates the tenets of debate and civil discourse we have strived for since the day we launched. As a result, we will no longer feature his posts on the front page. [...] (H)e is welcome to continue publishing his work on HuffPost provided it adheres to our editorial guidelines, as the two posts he published on HuffPost did — guidelines that include a strict prohibition on ad hominem attacks..."And recall one of Arianna's first (of many) lies, regarding HuffPost's commitment to civil discourse:
"If you're looking for the usual flame-throwing, name-calling, and simplistic attack dog rhetoric ... don't bother coming to the Huffington Post."So why would HuffPost enable, and give top billing to such virulent anti-Semitism, at this moment?
Might it have something to do with the fact that it opened up its first Arabic version, which is being criticized as a "pro-jihad" site?
Who knows. Maybe someday, some enterprising report from a major news organization will finally ask Arianna about that. Or perhaps, her bosses at AOL, or Verizon, which just bought both AOL and HuffPost. Don't hold your breath, though. HUFF-WATCH has sent every major report produced on this site that exposes HuffPost's endemic anti-Semitic, anti-Israel bias to many major news organizations - and not one has said a peep about any of it.
