(6.3) HuffPost’s racist bias and incitement

.

(1) Our definitions of “racism” and “racist bias in journalism” — with which HuffPost apparently agrees

(2) An overview of our core allegations against HuffPost

(3) Examples of HuffPost’s racist bias and incitement


(1) Our definitions of “racism” and “racist bias in journalism” — with which HuffPost apparently agrees

SaveTheWest.com defines racism in general as:

  • A belief that all members of certain races are either superior or inferior to others, and that the inferior ones possess certain negative attributes
  • Applying this racial bigotry and prejudice to one’s business and personal relationships

As an extension, we define racist bias in journalism as:

  • Inciting public hatred and/or violence against people of one race, or a specific person of that race — not because of anything they have personally done, but rather, because of their membership in that race
  • Applying different standards to reporting on hate crimes, determined by the race of the perpetrator or victim

Examples of “racist bias in journalism” would include:

  • Blaming one race for all or the majority of the problems one people or nation/state are facing
  • Giving top coverage to allegations of hate crimes against people of one’s favored race(s) — even when there is no evidence to support the charges, while at the same time…
  • Ignoring, downplaying, whitewashing or even justifying actual hate crimes against people of the vilified race —  even when the act was captured on video, and the perpetrator identified his motivations
HuffPost’s public statements indicate it supports our definitions

HuffPost has repeatedly and publicly stated that it does not allow any kind of offensive content on its pages, which presumably includes racism.  According to its terms and conditions, HuffPost:

“prohibits materials that are… hateful, obscene, defamatory, libelous… or [are] otherwise inappropriate”

Also, in 2010, Arianna Huffington, its editor-in-chief and found, asserted that she had also prohibited “conspiracy theories [and] inflammatory claims”:

“[At HuffPost] there are guidelines that have to be followed — and they include a prohibition on conspiracy theories or inflammatory claims… what the great historian Richard Hofstadter called ‘the paranoid style in American politics,’ which he defined as angry minds that traffic in ‘heated exaggeration, suspiciousness, and conspiratorial fantasy,’ and that see ‘the fate of conspiracy in apocalyptic terms… always manning the barricades of civilization’.”

These statements are part of HuffPost’s broader series of public claims that it is an absolutely nonpartisan, professional “news” organization, that does not allow any kind of hate speech or incitement.


(2) An overview of our core allegations against HuffPost

Contrary to HuffPost’s claims (above), it has established a de facto two-tiered prism through which it views and presents every issue:

  • People of color (including Muslims) are to be depicted as victims — even when they are the ones perpetrating hate crimes and terrorism
  • White people in general (except leftists), especially white Republicans and conservatives, are to be depicted as the cause of all the problems in America and the world — and ignored when they are the victims of hate crimes and terrorism by people of color

While HuffPost’s racial bias and incitement is not new, since 2015 it has taken on a far more hysterical, overt and incendiary tone.  Given HuffPost’s unrivaled reach and influence (it attracts an estimated 200 million monthly readers around the world), one can only speculate on the impact that its acts and omissions are having on (a) race relations in America, in general, and (b) the escalating racial hatred and violence we are witnessing on our streets.


(3) Examples of HuffPost’s racism, racist bias and incitement

Summary: Based on the above definitions, the following case studies are but a small sampling of our documentation of HuffPost’s racism and racist bias, which are part of its broader use of hate speech.  Many more case studies are found on the following pages:

Examples of HuffPost giving top coverage to alleged hate crimes against people in its favored groups

Examples of HuffPost ignoring hate crimes against people it views as worthless

Examples of HuffPost’s efforts to legitimize fake hate crimes against people in its favored groups


(3.1) RACIST BIAS AND INCITEMENT: HuffPost has, for years, been hiring almost exclusively white people for its top executive, journalist and editorial positions — while falsely calling conservative organizations that are far more racially diverse “racist”

(3.2) RACIST INCITEMENT: “It’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people”

(3.3) RACIST INCITEMENT: “Let’s be honest, white people are the problem here”

(3.4) RACIST INCITEMENT: HuffPost gave top, sustained coverage to a report that falsely claimed white conservatives are responsible for the vast majority of terrorism in America

(3.5) RACIST INCITEMENT: HuffPost’s South Africa edition published, and defended, an editorial that contained a plethora of lies to justify violence and discrimination against white people throughout the world

(3.6) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage to a fake hate crime against a Muslim student, but completely ignored a white student who was beaten nearly to death because of his skin color

(3.7) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage to a “news” story in which it asked a convicted black rapist, who justified his attack on a white woman on racial grounds, what makes him “cry” — but completely ignored the video of a white man who was dragged out of his car and beaten by a black mob, because of his skin color

(3.8) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave front-page splash coverage to a Palestinian who was detained for sixty minutes at a U.S. airport — but downplayed and dehumanized a white U.S. military veteran who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist

(3.9) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave front-page coverage to a Muslim woman who was asked in a restaurant if she has a green card — but completely ignored a U.S. soldier who was beaten nearly to death by a black mob, because of his skin color

(3.10) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave sustained, front page coverage to a “racist poster” urging white Americans to report illegal aliens — but completely ignored a six-year-old white California boy who had been nearly killed by a repeatedly-deported, drunk illegal alien

(3.11) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top, graphic, sympathetic coverage to the Muslim victim of a road-rage incident in Maryland — but completely ignored the four white men who were murdered by a black racist Muslim in California, and never mentioned his motivation

(3.12) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage and credibility to a black Red Lobster waitress who (falsely) reported a racist message on a receipt from a white customer — but completely ignored a black racist who attempted to murder a white person on a NY subway, in front of witnesses, while shouting “I hate white people!”

(3.13) RACIST BIAS AND INCITEMENT: HuffPost ignored a black Trump supporter who wsa beaten, on video, by a white leftist — then gave top coverage to a black entertainer who assailed another black Trump supporter — without ever mentioning that far more black Americans voted for President Trump than Gov. Romney in 2012


(3.1) RACIST BIAS AND INCITEMENT: HuffPost has, for years, been hiring almost exclusively white people for its top executive, journalist and editorial positions — while falsely calling conservative organizations that are far more racially diverse “racist”

Throughout 2009 and 2010, HuffPost repeatedly libeled the Tea Party, often by calling it “racist,:”  Yet as a detailed investigative report documented, the Tea Party was actually far more racially diverse than HuffPost was (and to a certain extent, still is).

For example, here is a picture of HuffPost’s 2009 employee Christmas party – which looks almost so purely white it might be mistaken for a Klan rally:

huffpost-christmas-2010

As documented by the Huff-Watch blog:

Is HuffPost racist? By its own standards, it would appear so, Huff-Watch, May 2, 2010.  Excerpt:

75% of America is white; 79% of the Tea Party is white (Gallup). Yet as this article documents, apparently 0% of HuffPost’s top executives, reporters and editors are black.

A roster of HuffPost’s top people at the time, obtained via its masthead, proves the point:

Same for its Section Editors:

All of HuffPost’s top reporters at the time were exclusively white, as well:

This practice continued, to a large extent, through May 2016, as evidenced by this picture of a meeting of HuffPost’s top editors – all white people — at its New York City headquarters:

The photo was taken by HuffPost’s executive editor, for which she and HuffPost were widely ridiculed on social media, for proving its lack of diversity, in contrast to its incessant attacks on others for being “racist.”


(3.2) RACIST INCITEMENT: “It’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people”

On November 10, 2016, HuffPost published a racist editorial at the top of its front page, that led to a story page which contained a sub-headline that read:

“It’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people.”

10nov16-nordstrom-white-people-ruined-america-calloutnordstrom-white-people-ruined-america-markup

Note that HuffPost positioned this incitement-based racist editorial under an ad for Nordstrom (above), and on its front page, next to an ad for State Farm insurance:

white-people-ruined-america-fp-callout


(3.3) RACIST INCITEMENT: “Let’s be honest, white people are the problem here”

HuffPost published this racist editorial on its front page on November 22, 2016, entitled:

White Jews Have A Duty To Stand With Muslims And People Of Color

Many of the bizarre racist and anti-Semitic premises and allegations underlying this editorial were quickly demolished by Micha Mitch Danzig, a Jewish lawyer and former Israeli soldier. Danzig, however, did not address this explicitly racist excerpt:

“Let’s be honest, white people are the problem here”

22nov16-white-people-are-the-problem


(3.4) RACIST INCITEMENT: HuffPost gave top, sustained coverage to a report that falsely claimed white conservatives are responsible for the vast majority of terrorism in America

The following is the executive summary from a special report by SaveTheWest.com: “SaveTheWest’s Debunking of The HuffPost’s Domestic Terrorism Report”

On June 23, 2017, HuffPost published on its front page a report with the headline, “Most of America’s Terrorists Are White, and Not Muslim; Right-wing terror is real, and it’s a problem.” The following is a screencap from HuffPost’s front page:

HuffPost left this report on its front page for nineteen straight days, until July 11, 2017.  The first clue that HuffPost’s report was not credible, is the the fact that the “poster-boy” it chose to use as an example of white right-wing terror is actually a Bernie Sanders supporter with apparent mental health issues.

In summary, HuffPost’s report made the following claims:

  • White right-wing extremists perpetrated nearly twice as many terrorist attacks on U.S. soil between 2008-2016 as Muslim extremists (121 incidents vs. 63)
  • Left-wing terror (19 incidents) is comparatively non-existent.

SaveTheWest conducted a thorough analysis of HuffPost’s claims, and found them to be demonstrably false, or at best, egregiously decontextualized. The reality is that:

  • 67% of domestic terrorism during the past eight years has been perpetrated by Islamists (35) and leftists (45) – not white right-wingers (39).
  • Since the 9/11 attacks, Islamist terrorists have killed almost twice as many Americans as white right-wingers (95 to 51).
  • While there are 60 times more white, non-Hispanic people than Muslims in America,
  • Muslims are, proportionally, 54 times more likely to perpetrate terrorist attacks on American soil.
  • Sunni Muslims are, proportionally, four times more likely to perpetrate terrorist attacks on American soil than white right-wingers.

This incident follows another in 2016, in which Arianna Huffington promoted a HuffPost report, entitled “Muslims Are Not Terrorists,” despite the fact that its own data shows that during the period it cited, 94% of terror deaths were due to Muslim terrorism (details here and here).

(3.5) RACIST INCITEMENT: HuffPost’s South Africa edition published, and defended, an editorial that contained a plethora of lies to justify violence and discrimination against white people throughout the world

The following is excerpted from our detailed case study on this incident, here.

On April 13, 2017, HuffPost published this editorial on the front page of its South Africa edition:

Could It Be Time To Deny White Men The Franchise?, by Shelley Garland, Huffington Post, April 13, 2017. Excerpts:

It is time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them. […]

Some of the biggest blows to the progressive cause in the past year have often been due to the votes of white men. If white men were not allowed to vote, it is unlikely that the United Kingdom would be leaving the European Union, it is unlikely that Donald Trump would now be the President of the United States, and it is unlikely that the Democratic Alliance would now be governing four of South Africa’s biggest cities.

If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely – the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world. The influence of reckless white males were one of the primary reasons that led to the Great Recession which began in 2008. This would also strike a blow against toxic white masculinity, one that is long needed. […]

This redistribution of the world’s wealth is long overdue, and it is not just South Africa where white males own a disproportionate amount of wealth.[…]

Over the past 500 years colonialism, slavery, and various aggressive wars and genocides, have been due to the actions of white men. Redistributing some of their assets will go some way to paying the historical debt that they owe society.

The fascistic thrust of this editorial aside, it is factually wrong, and thus, as HuffPost knew or should have known, it could only serve to incite more racial hatred, based on lies.

As the black economist and social commentator Dr. Thomas Sowell revealed in his study of slavery, while white Americans had a role in slavery, they inherited it — and did the most to end it.  Further, as Dr. Sowell revealed in his book, “Black Rednecks and White Liberals”, it was not white men, but rather, black Africans, Muslims and Arabs who have played the dominant role in the bulk of the slave trade for the past five hundred years — as they do to this day.  This audio excerpt is from Dr. Sowell’s book:

This was just the beginning of the outrage perpetrated by HuffPost South Africa.  It ended up becoming an international story, and inciting racial hatred throughout the world, against white people.


HuffPost’s South Africa editor was forced to resign; The co-owner of the site expressed “outrage,” calling it “a sad day for journalism”; The SA press ombudsman decried HuffPost’s explicit hate speech, and incitement of racial hatred and violence

See SaveTheWest’s full documentation of this incident, and the aftermath, here.  A summary:

  • HuffPost bragged about its boost in traffic: HuffPost South Africa’s executive editor defended the article, and boasted of how it was causing the website’s traffic to spike.
  • The author left numerous hints in his article as to why it should never have been published — but HuffPost did it anyway: The author of the piece explained why he wrote it, and his lack of surprise that HuffPost enthusiastically published and defended it: “The piece was accepted without question by the Huffington Post even though – as others have pointed out on social media and elsewhere – the piece is riddled with factual errors, logical fallacies, and is not something that an MA student could possibly write.  Huffington Post did not fact check any of my ludicrous claims in the article, nor, as far as I can tell, was the piece edited. After the piece was published I saw that I had entered one of the hyperlinks wrong for one of my ‘sources,’ and this had clearly not been checked.”
  • HuffPost’s parent company in SA became “outraged” after the issue blew up publicly: The CEO of the company that co-owns HuffPost South Africa became enraged after it discovered what its executive editor had done, calling the episode “hugely damaging” to its reputation. “Responsible journalism is at the heart of what we do; it’s the currency we trade in,” said Media24 CEO Esmaré Weideman. “In an era of fake news, I know only too well that our editors spend an inordinate amount of time checking the veracity of information before they publish. When our systems fail, we’re not just alarmed; we’re outraged. This is a sad day for journalism.”
  • The South Africa press ombudsman blasted HuffPost’s racism and incitement to violence: The ombudsman for South African news media also expressed his shock at the racism and incitement contained within the HuffPost editorial: “Let me be short and sweet: If disenfranchisement of anybody (whether white males or black females for that matter) is not discriminatory‚ the meaning of discrimination should be redefined.”
  • HuffPost SA’s executive editor was reportedly forced to resign, in the wake of this episode.

(3.6) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage to a fake hate crime against a Muslim student, but completely ignored a white student who was beaten nearly to death because of his skin color

The following is a summary of our full documentation of this incident, here.

On October 12, 2016, HuffPost published an in-depth, original story near the top of its front page, in which it alleged that a 7-year-old Muslim boy, Abdul Aziz Usmani, was beaten by his fellow classmates on a school bus to the point where he had a severely injured arm, and no one did anything to help him:

The father, Zeeshan-ul-hassan Usmani, also claimed that Abdul’s classmates:

  • Attempted to force him to eat food that was not halal (permissible in Islam)
  • Insulted him because of his faith
  • “Keep beating him all the way from school to home on the bus”
  • Beat him so severely that he required this arm sling

The father filed no police report, and no school complaint.  Instead, HuffPost’s entire “story” was based on Usami’s Facebook post, which featured the picture of Abdul with his arm in a sling, and the caption,

“Welcome to the United States of America of Donald Trump. Meet my son Abdul Aziz. He is in grade 1, bullied and beaten by his own classmates in school bus for being a Muslim.”

HuffPost supplemented its “story” with an interview it conducted with Usami after he fled with his family to his native Pakistan.

Its “story” then went viral, with the inflammatory headline it constructed, throughout the Western world, as well as throughout the Middle East and North Africa.

Just one problem: Investigations conducted by local police and school officials revealed that there was no evidence whatsoever to support anything the father said.  To the contrary, eyewitness interviews and surveillance videos show that none of it ever occurred. 

Yet HuffPost never posted a new story on its front page to correct the record, or apologize for how it misled readers throughout the world, on such an incendiary basis.  Instead, it merely replaced the copy in the “story” page with a new headline and introduction, explicitly claiming that the investigations found no evidence that any of the allegations were true.  Thus, to anyone who gets their “news” from HuffPost’s front page, they would have no idea that Usami’s “story” was completely untrue.  Rather, they would continue to believe the myth that America is an “Islamophobic” hellhole, and that little Abdul was merely its latest victim.

See our full documentation of this incident here.

Contrast how HuffPost treated the false allegations concerning Abdul Usami, versus 17-year-old Brian Ogle, who was beaten nearly to death by an estimated 9-60 Black Lives Matter-affiliated teens, allegedly in retaliation for his Facebook post in support of police officers

The following is a summary of our full documentation of this incident, here, located on a page that contains more than 130 other case studies of how HuffPost ignored hate crimes against those whom it views as worthless people.

Brian Ogle, before the attack.

From the Daily Caller:

Alabama Teen Beaten Into Critical Condition After Posting ‘Blue Lives Matter’ [VIDEO], by Christian Datoc, The Daily Caller, October 3, 2016. Excerpt:

A 17-year-old Alabama high school student is in critical condition after being assaulted this weekend. According to Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson, Brian Ogle was assaulted in an Ace Hardware parking lot following Sylacauga High School’s homecoming game on Friday.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they discovered Ogle beaten and bleeding from the head.

Ogle’s mother, Brandi Allen, told police she believes the assault occurred after he posted a pro-police message to Facebook. “Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we’re here,” Allen told WBRC from the UAB Hospital on Sunday. “Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I’m still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being.”

Allen added that her son received “threatening messages” after making the post. “My son took it to the principal at Sylacauga High School and I commend him for that. He showed her the threats that were being made to him, but she told him there was nothing she could do. I’m appalled.”

Brian Ogle, after he was beaten nearly to death. For a Facebook post, in support of police officers.

On October 4, local reporter Jon Paepcke, with WVTM13 TV, posted a Tweet that claimed the police told him “Ogle was attacked by between 9-60 males”:

On October 4, 2016, the Washington Post published a story about the assault on Ogle; and on October 12, the NY Daily News revealed that four of his attackers had been arrested and charged with the crime.  Ogle’s story was covered by the Daily Mail (UK), the International Business Times, and a number of other US news outlets.

HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story.

A December 13, 2017 search using the string “Brian Ogle” returned zero results. Similarly, a search of the accused attackers’ names — “Quartez Walker Bobby Brown Noah Grant Ealy, Jr. Daveon Nix” — also returned zero results.

Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page from October 5-7, the three days following the October 4, Washington Post story:

(3.7) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage to a “news” story in which it asked a convicted black rapist, who justified his attack on a white woman on racial grounds, what makes him “cry” — but completely ignored the video of a white man who was dragged out of his car and beaten by a black mob, because of his skin color

The Daily Caller published this story on July 18, 2016:

Report: Vanderbilt Football Rape Was Payback For ‘400 Years Of Slavery’, by Peter Hasson, The Daily Caller, July 18, 2016. Excerpt:

Cory Batey’s arrest photo (courtesy ABC)

According to a report by The Tennessean, former Vanderbilt football player Cory Batey told the young woman whom he and three other men raped that her assault was payback “for 400 years of slavery.”

Batey was sentenced to 15 years in prison last week — the minimum sentence allowed under the law — for raping and then urinating on the unconscious victim, who was 21 years old at the time. Metro Nashville police reportedly discovered explicit photographs and video of the rape during their investigation, which were shown to the victim. […]

According to The Tennessean, prosecutors had successfully kept the exact words of Batey’s “horrific racial hate speech” from being used in trial. However, multiple sources told the newspaper on Friday that during the attack Batey had said: “That’s for 400 years of slavery, you bitch.”

HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this aspect of the story.

A December 24 search using the string “Cory Batey That’s for 400 years of slavery” returned zero results. Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page, from July 19-21 (three days after the Daily Caller first reported this story):

This “news” story was posted near the top of HuffPost’s front page on July 20, 2016.

HuffPost did, however, post an original story entitled, Watch What Makes Former Vanderbilt Football Player [Cory Batey] Convicted Of Rape Cry:

Rather than featuring the above story (and acknowledging that it may have been the result of its chronic incitement of racial hatred), four months later, on November 28, 2016, HuffPost published a “story” that could only be designed to evoke sympathy for this convicted rapist:

Watch What Makes Former Vanderbilt Football Player Convicted Of Rape Cry (VIDEO), Huffington Post, November 28, 2016.


Contrast how HuffPost treated this convicted rapist, to the fact that it completely ignored a black mob that was caught on video, severely beating a white man, while accusing him of voting for Trump

The following is a summary of our full documentation of this incident, here, located on a page that contains more than 130 other case studies of how HuffPost ignored hate crimes against those whom it views as worthless people.

On November 9, 2016 a black mob in Chicago, IL dragged a white driver from a car and severely beat him, while screaming, “You voted Trump? You gonna pay for that shit!” The attack was captured on video, and uploaded to YouTube the same day:

The Washington Post covered the story on November 11:

Video shows group viciously beating man in Chicago, yelling, ‘You voted Trump’ and ‘Don’t vote Trump’, by Travis M. Andrews, Washington Post, November 11, 2016. Excerpt:

In a video that appeared to be shot on a smartphone, a group of young men and women viciously beat a 49-year-old man named David Wilcox while screaming phrases such as “You voted Trump” and “Don’t vote Trump.” […]

In the video, several men and women threw him to the concrete and kicked him repeatedly, sometimes in the face. The laughing group threw haymakers at the Wilcox’s head, as he desperately tried to crawl and limp back to his Bonneville. The door hung open until one of the young men climbed into the driver’s seat and slammed the door. […]

A subsequent video obtained by the Tribune showed Wilcox grabbing onto the open back window of the car, as the young man drove off. Wilcox hung from the window, his feet dragging along the concrete as the Bonneville picked up speed. “The guy took off. He was doing 70 or 80 down Roosevelt, swerving. He was trying to have me fall off, and I knew if I somehow let go, I was going to die,” Wilcox told the paper.

The story was covered in the DailyMail (UK), USA Today, CBS News, and many others.

HuffPost’s search engine proves that it completely ignored this story.

A November 28, 2016 search using the string “David Wilcox Chicago beat” returned zero results. HuffPost also completely ignored the fact that on November 18, four perpetrators were arrested and charged with beating Wilcox.

Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page over the next three days, from November 12-14:

(3.8) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave front-page splash coverage to a Palestinian who was detained for sixty minutes at a U.S. airport — but downplayed and dehumanized a white U.S. military veteran who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist

On February 20, 2013, HuffPost published this top-of-the-front page splash headline, alleging that a Palestinian film maker was detained for 60 minutes at a U.S. airport:

20Feb13 FPHL HP weeps for pal director


Contrast the “stop-the-presses,” graphic treatment that HuffPost gave to this Palestinian filmmaker to how it dehumanized Capt. Taylor Force, a beloved, white U.S. military veteran, who was murdered in Israel by a Palestinian terrorist

SaveTheWest produced a 17-minute documentary about this incident, below.  in summary:

  • HuffPost only posted an initial wire service report about Taylor’s murder on its front page, then quickly moved the story to a secondary page. Although his name was known, and pictures of him were available at the time, its headline only said a generic “American tourist” had been killed, which it matched with a picture of an Israeli policeman, at night.
  • HuffPost never published a single picture of Taylor, or any of the details about his character, heroism and grief-stricken family, that emerged in the 24 hours after his murder, in U.S. and Israeli newspapers.
  • 03-08-2016 FPHL 13-15 - KimK nudeThe highest position HuffPost gave Taylor’s story was just beneath a graphic, original story it wrote about Kim Kardashian’s anger at other celebrities criticizing her for posting a nude selfie (which it also posted on its front page as “news”; right).
  • HuffPost’s treatment of Taylor, his murder and his family stands in sharp contrast to the other stories to which it gave personalized, graphic and sympathetic treatment on both its front page and World page, during this period. These picture-rich stories depicted a swan that was abused in Eastern Europe; a dying whale; an American jihadi who regrets joining ISIS; and profiles of two Syrian refugees in Turkey.
  • HuffPost also ignored the fact that the Palestinian Authority and Hamas openly celebrated Taylor’s murder. Instead, it posted stories on its front page about a dog that appears to be driving a tractor; an ISIS leader who may have been killed; and a tattoo-faced gangster who was arrested.

See the full documentation behind our documentary here.

Rather than being an isolated incident, HuffPost has a long history of giving front-page , personalized, sympathetic treatment to Palestinians civilians and even terrorists with grievances, or who are experiencing grief; see our documentation here.

(3.9) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave front-page coverage to a Muslim woman who was asked in a restaurant if she has a green card — but completely ignored a U.S. soldier who was beaten nearly to death by a black mob, because of his skin color

On February 1, 2o17, HuffPost published this story near the top of its front page:

Video Shows Man Harassing Muslim Woman, Asking If She Has A Green Card, “Do you have a green card, by the way? Yeah, you look, are you even — ”; by Nina Golgowski Trends reporter, The Huffington Post, January 31, 2017.

The woman was not touched or harmed in any way, yet HuffPost decided this story deserved positioning near the top of its front page.


Contrast HuffPost’s treatment of this story, to the fact that it completely ignored a white U.S. soldier who was severely beaten by a black mob — on video — because of his skin color

David Palmer served seven years in the U.S. Army, then returned home to North Carolina to be close to his family, and resume his life, in peace. On September 21, 2016, however, while walking home after a dinner in a restaurant, he was targeted and severely beaten by a gang of black men, specifically was of his skin color.

The video’s early seconds show a white man being attacked by two black rioters. The man eventually flees while holding a hand over his injured face, while onlookers jeer. After the man jogs off, somebody can be heard shouting “You’re in the danger zone, white boy!”

Since the video’s release, the white man in the video has been identified as David Palmer, a seven-year Army veteran who only returned to civilian life within the past year. The video was recorded the night of Sept. 21 and uploaded to YouTube shortly after.

Palmer’s sister, Ashley Brooke Warlick, has created a GoFundMe page for her brother, seeking to raise money for his medical and living expenses in the wake of the attack.

And here was David Palmer in the hospital:


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story.

A December 9, 2016 search using the string “Charlotte NC beat David Palmer,” returned zero results. Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page, from October 1-3:

(3.10) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave sustained, front page coverage to a “racist poster” urging white Americans to report illegal aliens — but completely ignored a six-year-old white California boy who had been nearly killed by a repeatedly-deported, drunk illegal alien

For two straight days, on March 16 & 17, 2017, HuffPost featured the story of a “racist flyer” on its front page:

Racist Posters Promoting White Supremacy Plague College Campuses; The Anti-Defamation League has catalogued more than 100 incidents of racist fliers found on college campuses, by Sebastian Murdock, The Huffington Post, March 16, 2017, 5:14 pm. Excerpt:

Colleges across the U.S. continue to be plagued with fliers promoting racism.

On Monday, multiple fliers posted by members of Vanguard America ― a white supremacy group ― were found on the University of Maryland Campus.

“A notice to all white Americans,” one flier read. “It is your civic duty to report any and all illegal aliens. …They are criminals. America is a white nation.”

“Carry the torch of your people,” another said. It was the third time in three months that fliers were found on the campus, according to The Washington Post.

Similar fliers were found the same day at George Washington University in D.C.

This flyer was clearly intended to incite racial hatred among whites against illegal aliens, the overwhelming majority of which are Hispanic.  HuffPost’s presumed purpose in giving this flyer such prominent positioning was to evoke sympathy for the estimated 11 million illegal aliens who now reside in America — while consistently ignoring the horrific crimes that have been perpetrated against Americans by illegals who have been deported 2, 5, 10 or more times, yet are able to keep re-entering the U.S.  One example is the story of Lennox Lake.


Contrast how HuffPost publicized this flyer, to the fact that it completely ignored the story of six-year-old Lennox Lake, who was nearly killed in an auto accident that was caused by a drunken illegal alien who had been deported at least fifteen times since 2002

On May 9, 2017, news broke in California that a family returning from a Disneyland vacation had been in an auto accident that was caused by a repeatedly-deported illegal alien, and that their six-year-old son, Lennox Lake, had suffered severe injuries.

From the local NBC affiliate:

DUI Suspect Who Crashed Into Family Returning From Disneyland Was Deported 15 Times: ICE; Lennox and his parents were returning from a trip to Disneyland when the crash occurred, by R. Stickney and Ashley Matthews, NBCLosAngeles.com, May 9-10, 2017. Excerpt:

A man accused in a traffic collision that injured a boy Saturday has been deported at least 15 times in the last 15 years, according to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson.

Constantino Banda, 38, faces charges of driving under the influence, driving without a license and felony hit and run following the collision at Camino De La Plaza and Dairy Mart Road in San Diego’s San Ysidro district.

The victims in the traffic collision included 6-year-old Lennox Lake, who was listed Tuesday night in serious condition at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego.

Lennox and his parents were returning from a trip to Disneyland when the crash occurred. […]

Lennox was strapped into a car seat in the backseat. His mother found Lennox unconscious from the impact.  He added, “the first thing he (Lennox) asked was if mommy was okay.”Lennox suffered a long list of injuries, some including a fractured skull and bleeding from his nose and ears.

Lennox’s family set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for his medical expenses:


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story, and fundraiser

A May 12, 2017 search using the string “Lennox Lake Disneyland” returned zero results:

This is part of HuffPost’s continuing pattern of completely ignoring incidents of horrific violent crimes being perpetrated by illegal aliens who had been deported up to 20 times, yet were able to re-enter America, including:

So what kinds of “news” stories did HuffPost decide to publish on its front page in the days after news about Lennox and the fundraiser for him broke?  Here’s a sampling.

Instead of publishing a single word about happened to him, who did it, or the fundraiser his family had initiated to help pay for his medical expenses, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page, in the three days after this story broke, May 10-12, 2017:

This “news” story appeared for the second day in a row on HuffPost’s front page on May 12, 2017, in its “Voices” section.

Also contrast HuffPost ignoring the fundraiser for Lennox to the fact that one year earlier, in May 2016, it posted this “news” story, with a solicitation for donations, near the top of its front page:

Ironically, less than one month earlier, in April 2017, HuffPost’s new editor claimed it has “a new mission ― to tell the stories of people who have been left out of the conversation”

On April 25, 2017, newly-installed HuffPost editor Lydia Polgreen wrote an editorial that appeared at the top of HuffPost’s front page, the subhead of which claimed:

We’ve got a new name, look and mission ― to tell the stories of people who have been left out of the conversation.

Under Polgreen’s leadership, however, HuffPost decided that neither Lennox nor his family or loved ones deserve to even be acknowledged, anywhere on its site.

(3.11) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top, graphic, sympathetic coverage to the Muslim victim of a road-rage incident in Maryland — but completely ignored the four white men who were murdered by a black racist Muslim in California, and never mentioned his motivation

On June 19-20, 2017, HuffPost published three picture-rich, sympathetic stories on its front page about the murder of a Muslim teenager, Nabra Hassanen, depicting it as a hate crime — even though there was zero evidence to support this contention.  Notice how in two of the three stories below, HuffPost used the victim’s first name and picture in the headlines, thus humanizing her.  Note also that the content of each story implies that she was murdered by a white male who hated Muslims:

It was soon discovered, however, by the Daily Caller and the Washington Post, that the reality was not what Instead, it was a road rage incident, perpetrated by a Hispanic illegal alien from El Salvador — not because the victim was a Muslim, or a woman of color.

This omission is a continuation of HuffPost’s attempts to falsely legitimize many other hate crimes that turned out to be false, or hoaxes, against people in the groups it favors — particularly Muslims, black Americans, and members of the LGBT community.  See our documentation of more than a dozen such incidents here:

Examples of HuffPost’s efforts to legitimize fake hate crimes against people in its Favored Groups


Contrast the sympathetic, personalized, top coverage HuffPost gave to Nabra Hassanen, to the fact that it completely ignored the identities of the four white victims of a black Muslim racist in Fresno, CA

At approximately 10:45am (CA time) on April 18, 2017, a black Muslim racist, Kori Ali Muhammad, went on a race-motivated murder spree against white people in Fresno, CA. Local and international news bureaus reported that witnesses said that both while he was shooting, and as he was arrested, Muhammad screamed “Allahu Akbar!” Three men, all white, soon lay dead. Muhammad also murdered a white motel clerk five days earlier, allegedly because he felt “disrespected.”

Kori Ali Muhammad

Notable facts that were soon discovered after Muhammad’s rampage:


HuffPost gave only delayed, downplayed, whitewashed, brief coverage to this story

For the first hours after the story of the Fresno rampage broke, HuffPost featured nothing about it. Finally, sometime around 9:00pm (EST) it featured one story about it, mid-way down its front page. Note that the headline made no mention of the racist motivation behind Muhammad’s rampage, or the fact that he was screaming “Allahu Akbar!,” both as he perpetrated the crime, and when he was being arrested:

This screencap was taken at 9:45pm, and was the highest positioning HuffPost ever gave this story. By 11:45pm, HuffPost moved it to nearly the bottom of the front page — beneath the story of anger over a gay tattoo.

HuffPost, however, was aware of all the salient distinguishing characteristics of this rampage, as it proved in the story page to which that whitewashed headline led:

California Man Who Killed Security Guard Kills 3 More Before Capture, Cops Say, by Sebastian Murdock, Huffington Post, April 18, 2017. Excerpts:

A California man accused of fatally shooting a security guard last week was captured Tuesday after shooting three other people to death, police said. He allegedly shouted “Allahu akbar” as he was being detained. […]

Muhammad is a homeless man who Dyer said had posted on Facebook that he “does not like white people” and expressed anti-government sentiments.

Compare how HuffPost whitewashed what it knew about Muhammad, as contrasted to this splash headline it published against Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, neither of whom murdered four people because of racial hatred:

And, against a black candidate for Lt. Governor of Virginia. who supports traditional marriage – but also did not murder four people because of his racism:

See more examples of HuffPost’s “headline jihads” against those it hates, and wants to stir up public hatred against, here.

Within 24 hours, HuffPost had removed this story of Muhammad’s rampage from its front page.


HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored the victims of Muhammad’s April 18 rampage

The three victims from Muhammad’s April 18 rampage were identified as Zackary Randalls, 34, Mark Gassett, 37, and David Jackson, 58. The motel guard he murdered on April 13 was identified as Carl Williams, 25. HuffPost only mentioned Carl Williams within the confines of its first story, but never published his picture, or dedicated a story to who he was. Here is a montage of all of Muhammad’s victims, containing their personal stories, published by the Daily Mail (UK) on April 20 at 2:00pm EST:

An April 22, 2017 search using strings containing (a) each of the April 18 victims’ names, and (b) Kori Ali Muhammad, produced zero results. Try it for yourself:


HuffPost ignored Muhammad’s April 18 victims — right after giving four straight days of front page coverage to sympathetic coverage of convicted murderers

Contrast HuffPost’s black-out of information on Muhammad’s April 18 victims to the fact that in the four days prior to his massacre, it gave four straight days of front page coverage to this story:

On April 15, HuffPost debuted this story at the top of its front page. And for the next three straight days, it remained on front page. You can see this for yourself via these full-page screencaps from the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive):

This is part of HuffPost’s long pattern of giving top publicity to sympathetic depictions of convicted murderers — while ignoring their victims, especially if those who killed them were Islamist or Palestinian terrorists.


The day after the Fresno massacre, HuffPost gave sympathetic, personalized, pictorial, front-page coverage to a wombat that died — as a virgin, and a woman whose hand was stuck in a toilet

While HuffPost ignored these victims, here are some of the “news” stories it published on its front page in the days following the Fresno massacre:

On April 19, 2017, HuffPost featured on its front page the original story that one of its “journalists” wrote, about “Patrick,” an elderly wombat in Australia, whom it discovered had tragically died — as a virgin:

Also on April 19, 2017, HuffPost featured on its front page the sympathetic story about a woman whose hand got stuck in a toilet:

HuffPost devoted its resources to telling the world about those “news” stories after the Fresno massacre– yet never even posted the names, pictures or stories of its victims.

(3.12) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost gave top coverage and credibility to a black Red Lobster waitress who (falsely) reported a racist message on a receipt from a white customer — but completely ignored a black racist who attempted to murder a white person on a NY subway, in front of witnesses, while shouting “I hate white people!”

On September 9, 2013, HuffPost ran this headline on its front page, and left it there for two straight days:

Note that HuffPost’s front page headline said, de facto, that a racist note was left on a Red Lobster receipt — even though it was, at this point, nothing more than an allegation (which quickly was revealed to be yet another in the dozens of recent fake hate incidents; details below).  This stands in stark contrast to the doubt it casts on any allegation made by American soldiers, police officers, and the Israeli government, which it invariably puts in quotes, to imply that the claim is not credible.  Examples:

On November 17, 2010, HuffPost published this “news” story near the top of its front page:

It did this knowing that the only evidence for this incident was a screencap of the receipt, which the alleged victim, Toni Christina Jenkins, posted on her Facebook page.

Clicking on that headline brought the reader to this story page:

Racist Note Left On Red Lobster Receipt, by Hunter Stuart, The Huffington Post, September 9, 2013.  Excerpt:

A waitress at a Red Lobster in Franklin, Tenn., was reportedly left a racist messageon a receipt over the weekend, according to multiple reports. In the tip section, instead of leaving a gratuity, the customer apparently wrote, “None n**ger.”

Red Lobster waitress Tori Christina Jenkins, who is black, allegedly received the shameful message on Saturday. Her father posted a screenshot of the message to Facebook Sunday night, saying he hopes it will make people more aware “[t]hat we still have much ignorance to overcome.”

The credibility that HuffPost gave to this allegation, and given its reach and influence, helped to generate more than $10,000 in donations to Jenkins.

Soon after the story was published, however, it began to unravel:

  • On September 10, 2013 — the day after HuffPost first reported the allegation — the attorney of the customer whose name appeared on the receipt that the Jenkins posted, Devin Barnes, publicly denied writing that message.
  • On October 30, 2013, the Daily Caller revealed that two separate handwriting experts concluded that Barnes had not written the message on the receipt.
  • On May 24, 2014, the NY Daily News reported that Barnes filed a lawsuit against Red Lobster and Watkins.

HuffPost published nothing about Watkins’ unraveling story until May 28, 2014 – but not on its front page.  Here is the story page, date-stamped as being published on May 28:

We know that HuffPost did not publish this story on its front page on May 28, 29 or 30, thanks to the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive).  Below are the links to HuffPost’s entire front pages for those three days:

28May14 HuffPost front page

29May14 HuffPost front page

30May14 HuffPost front page

So what kinds of “news” stories did HuffPost decide to put on its front page during these three days, instead of the unraveling story behind another apparently outrageous hoax that it helped to publicize?  Here is a sampling — the first of which was on its front page for two straight days:

  Update: SaveTheWest.com has confirmed through Devin Barnes’s attorney, Richard Dugger, that their lawsuit against Red Lobster was settled out of court, under terms of confidentiality.  HuffPost’s search engine shows that it has not reported this fact.  A March 26, 2017 search using the string “Devin Barnes settle Red Lobster” returns no results:


Contrast how HuffPost treated the fake racist receipt incident, to the fact that it completely ignored a black racist in Queens, NY who tried to murder a white subway rider, in front of witnesses, while screaming “I HATE WHITE PEOPLE!”

From the New York Daily News:

Queens man cuffed for trying to push straphanger onto Harlem subway tracks; yelled, ‘I hate white people’, by Graham Rayman, New York Daily News, November 23, 2016, 11:25am.

Cops busted a Queens man for trying to push a straphanger onto the subway tracks in Harlem and yelling, “I hate white people!” Police cuffed Gary Weeks, 51, of Wavecrest for the bizarre attack Monday at 2 p.m. at the 4-5-6 subway station at 125th St. and Lexington Ave., officials said.

The straphanger was waiting for a northbound train when Weeks walked up to him and tried to push him onto the tracks. The victim got away from Weeks, as other people started pointing and yelling at the attacker to simmer down.

He then began yelling about his hatred for whites.

HuffPost’s search engine proves it completely ignored this story.

A December 12 search using the string “NY subway Gary Weeks I hate white people” returned zero results. Instead, here is a sampling of the “news” stories that HuffPost published on its front page, from November 24-26, 2016:

(3.13) RACIST BIAS AND INCITEMENT: HuffPost ignored a peaceful black Trump supporter who was beaten, on video, by a white leftist — then gave top coverage to a black entertainer who assailed another black Trump supporter — without ever mentioning that far more black Americans voted for President Trump than Gov. Romney in 2012

On August 23, 2017, a peaceful black Trump supporter was beaten in Laguna Beach, CA by a white leftist, on video.  The leftist perpetrator bragged about what he did, and invited the police to arrest him, which they did.  As documented in our case study on the matter, HuffPost completely ignored the video, and the aftermath.

Rather than being an isolated incident, this was part of HuffPost’s long-term practice of inciting hate and justifying violence against Trump supporters and conservatives, as documented in the following short video by SaveTheWest:

Then, on August 25, 2017, HuffPost continued its racial bias and incitement against black conservatives, by positioning this “news” story at the top of its front page:

Clicking on that headline brought the reader to this page:

Michael Che: ‘On Behalf Of Black People Everywhere, We Don’t Know This Fool’, by Ed Mazza, Huffington Post, August 25, 2017. Excerpt:

It was hard to miss.  At President Donald Trump’s Phoenix rally this week, a black supporter was standing just behind him, holding up a “Blacks for Trump” sign. Turns out that man is a conspiracy theorist with a bizarre online presence.

But on “Weekend Update: Summer Edition,” anchor Michael Che wanted to make one thing very clear.

“I feel like I have to say on behalf of black people everywhere: We don’t know this fool,” Che said.

This was one black commentator who expressed a view that could only be interpreted as a belief that all black people have to vote for Democrats, or they are somehow not legitimate, or are sell-outs.  This was also verbatim what was said by the black conservative who was beaten by a white leftist, in Laguna Beach, CA, said he felt is how black leftists view him — which HuffPost completely ignored.


Aside from its anti-black bias and incitement in these incidents, HuffPost also never informed its readers that far more black Americans voted for President Trump than vote for Gov. Romney in 2012

After the 2016 election results came in, HuffPost essentially went on a “jihad” to propagandize how Sec. Clinton could have lost, and refused to publicize the actual, contextual numbers. SaveTheWest documented quite a bit of this “jihad” on the following page:

HuffPost’s scorched-Earth efforts to elect Sec. Clinton — and its furious reaction to the election results

For example the following facts are included in the above report:

  • New York Times: Trump won substantially more black and Hispanic votes than Gov. Romney did in 2012. 8% of black Americans vote for Trump, up 7% since 2012, and 29% of Hispanics voted for him, up 8% from 2012 (chart below).
  • Philadelphia Tribune: “Almost two million black votes cast for Obama in 2012 did not turn out for Clinton.”
  • Wall St. Journal: 3.5 million fewer Americans — including 1.8 million black Americans — voted for Hillary Clinton than voted for President Obama in 2012.

Yet before and since the election, HuffPost has consistently marginalized and vilified any black person who stood with Trump, and even now, nearly a year later, it is still doing it, apparently as part of a broader effort to ensure that black Americans feel compelled to vote for the Democratic Party.  Which, as court documents indicate, HuffPost was founded to serve, while lying to its advertisers and the general public.
