For whom does HuffPost weep?

.

This page contains a compilation of “news” stories that have appeared on HuffPost’s front page, in which it identified people and animals from around the world whom it decided were deserving of public sympathy (and occasionally, financial donations).

As documented elsewhere at SaveTheWest and more focused watchdog sites, HuffPost published these stories at the same time as, or soon after other people (especially U.S. military personnel, and Jews) and animals had suffered attacks by Islamist terrorists, or members of the violent alt-left, but who it completely ignored.

Contrast HuffPost’s treatment of Hadar to the sympathetic, front-page coverage it gave to a Palestinian journalist who alleged she was detained and interrogated:

… and female inmates in an Israeli jail who alleged (with no proof) that guards “humiliated” them:

fp-teaser-callout-palprisoners… and the top-of-the-front page splash headline it gave to a Palestinian film maker who alleged he was detained for 60 minutes at a U.S. airport:

If you follow the links beneath those pictures to the story pages at HuffPost, you’ll find that in each of these cases, HuffPost presented the victim’s faces, names and sympathetic personal narratives.

(7.x) The sunburned dolphin vs the victim of a race-incited rape

HuffPost featured this story was posted near the top of it front page on July 20, 2016.

Stranded Dolphin Was So Sunburned By The Time Rescuers Found Her

As documented here, HuffPost ran this story in the days after news broke that a black college football player who had been convicted of raping a white student reportedly told her, “That’s for 400 years of slavery, you bitch!” — about which it mentioned nothing.  Instead, HuffPost published a sympathetic “news” story about him that focused on what makes him cry.

(7.x) March 12, 2017: Bear killed in German zoo

This news story appeared on HuffPost’s front page on March 12, 2017.  Note that this headline gives more personalized, sympathetic, graphic treatment to a bear, than HuffPost has ever given to a Jewish person (including American Jews), or an American soldier, who was shot or stabbed to death by Islamist terrorists.

Also contrast HuffPost’s treatment of Hadar to how it treated members of an all-girl Russian punk band, after they were arrested for barging into a famed orthodox church in Moscow, during services, then singing a vulgar song. HuffPost essentially went apoplectic over the plight of the band, Pussy Riot, and began a multi-year stream of more than a hundred sympathetic stories about these “victims,” including top-of-the-page splash headlines:

2012-08-17 WPHL Pussyriot convicted TOP STORY 925a

On one day alone, HuffPost had nine separate stories on its World page about Pussy Riot – at the same time:

2012-08-19 Wphls 1235a – 9 Refs to Pussyriot – Zero Israel by SaveTheWest

In fact, while a search of Hadar’s name at HuffPost yields zero results, a search of the term “pussy riot” returns 133,000 entries:
