HuffPost front-page headline: Romney chased by "pack of Jews"

Just the latest incident of HuffPost's four-year-long pattern of bias and incitement of hate against Jews and Israel...

See updates at end: HuffPost digs in deeper, posts another egregious lie.

From today's front page at HuffPost:

Proof that this outrageous headline story appeared on HuffPost's front page (see URL address):

And if you go to the story page, you'll discover some interesting facts:
  • This "pack" of (wild!) Jews was actually members of a wedding party in Lakewood New Jersey, one female member of which told the Secret Service, "We just want(ed) to see Romney." Thank goodness the Secret Service was so vigilant --- after all, who knows what kind of horror that an unrestrained "pack of Jews" could do???
Anyone with even a passing knowledge of how HuffPost operates knows well that if it found out that a "right-wing" online "news" paper ran a headline story that claimed Obama was "chased by a pack of..." African Americans, or Sikhs, or Muslims, Arianna would have gone apoplectic, claiming that such an incident shows how "racist" conservatives are.

Yet as we've documented over and over again, HuffPost is now the West's #1 largest Internet-based inciter and tolerator of hatred against Jews and Israel. Despite the fact that Arianna falsely claims HuffPost is a "nonpartisan" newspaper, this is merely the latest incident in its four-year-long pattern of deliberately, maliciously depicting Jews as monsters, criminals and psychotics. (example at right documented here)


If you believe HuffPost should stop inciting hatred against Jews, we urge you to do three things:
(1) Make your voice known to HuffPost's senior management here.

(2) Consider writing or calling one or more of HuffPost's top advertisers, to let them know your thoughts on what their ad dollars are enabling.
An easy way to approach this is to scan our easy-to-use directory and find one or two corporations that you are a customer of, or have stock in. Your concerns will automatically be given considerably more weight. Also, request a follow-up after they've had a chance to review the evidence; don't let them off the hook, or sweep this under the rug.

(3) Forward the link to this story along to others who support Jews and Israel --- particularly journalists!!!

UPDATE August 9, 4:45pm: HuffPost changes headline --- but lies again, digs in deeper; falsely claims "Romney was chased off by wedding party"

Thanks to an alert read, "MB," we learned that HuffPost (a) changed the story page headline, and (b) inserted one of its infamous "slide shows" into the story. First, the new story page headline:

But now, scrolling down a bit, in a "slide show" HuffPost falsely claims that Romney was "chased off" by the (pack of) Jews:

And based on what evidence does HuffPost make this claim? Well, it doesn't say.

What we do know, however, is that once again, HuffPost was lying: These were not people "chasing off" Romney, but rather, they were Romney supporters who were chasing after the motorcade to support him. And how do we know that? Well, because the New York Times, not exactly a Romney supporting outfit, got the actual story --- from the actual participants:
An Orthodox Jewish wedding party was taking pictures outside Lake Terrace, according to the pool report, but as the candidate’s car drove up, “the family abandoned the bride and groom and began chasing Romney’s car in the parking lot, waving cameras.” About 10 wedding guests followed Mr. Romney’s car to a back entrance, but they were ultimately stopped by the Secret Service. “We just want to see Romney,” one woman protested, according to the report.

Mr. Romney ultimately fulfilled that wish. A campaign spokesman said the candidate posed with the bride and groom, who told him they were supporters.
So once again, HuffPost published lies, in a manner that could only serve to (a) incite hatred against Jews based on false allegations, and (b) give the false impression that Romney is hated within this Jewish community.

How does this all compare to Arianna's claims that HuffPost is a professional "newspaper," and better than its competitors?
"If you're going to produce great journalism, you have to build a team of people who are working together and driving toward the same goals editorially.”
– Arianna Huffington, April 7, 2011 --- two months after being put in control of all of AOL's "news" and "content"

"AOL's acquisition of HuffPost has allowed us... to continue to change the culture here."
--- Tim Armstrong, Chairman, AOL, the genius who bought HuffPost and put Arianna in charge of all "news" and "content" --- May 14, 2011

“[T]oo many reporters have forgotten that the highest calling of journalists is to ferret out the truth, consequences be damned.”
- Arianna Huffington, July 29, 2008

“We are aiming to go beyond just facts, to create a narrative... [W]e think bringing journalism to a new level is exactly what people are looking for.”
- Arianna Huffington, October 20, 2009
Do you believe any of that --- or Arianna's repeated claims that HuffPost is a "nonpartisan" newspaper? If so, we'd encourage you to contact Arianna as soon as possible; she's also selling timeshares on Uranus --- get yours before they're all sold out!



  1. This is a most disgusting headline. What do you mean by a "pack" of jews. I can only imagine the outcry if the headline had read "chased by a pack of blacks". SHAME ON YOU!!!

  2. Thanks for highlighting this! Huff-Post is frankly insane. They are a complete joke. Whoever takes anything these anti-semitic, paranoid, hypocritical loons write seriously ought to have their meds checked. But, unbelievably, many people out there still regard them as a credible news source...
