RACIST BIAS & INCITEMENT
Here are just some of the dozens of detailed case studies from this page:
(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
(3.9) 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
(3.12) 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!”
(3.14) RACIST BIAS: October 2017: HuffPost ignored a racist attack upon an elderly white man by a black teen in New York, who shouted, “White people suck. I hate white people!”
(3.15) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost completely ignored a white woman who was physically assaulted on a NY train, on video, by a black man who used racial epithets against her — yet gave top, sustained coverage to two Muslim women who claimed they were insulted and spat at by a man, on a NY train, because of their faith
(3.16) RACIST BIAS: HuffPost completely ignored a violent, racist assault on a white woman, in front of witnesses, because they (falsely) assumed she was a Trump supporter — yet two days earlier, HuffPost gave top coverage to, and explicitly condemned several white Trump supporters who said unkind things to three Palestinian anti-Trump activists
(1.1) HuffPost published a splash front page headline that claimed Parkland, FL shooter Nikolas Cruz is a “white supremacist” — even though it knew or should have known this claim had already been debunked hours earlier — then quietly removed it from its front page, without alerting its readers that they had been lied to
- Why would HuffPost so easily engage in this kind of chronic incitement of racial hatred, which can only result in pitting Americans against Americans based on lies and distortions?
- Why would HuffPost publish such an inflammatory, unproven allegation against this murderer — yet either refuse to report on, or whitewash more than four dozen Islamist terror attacks, plots and arrests, as documented on this page?
- Why did HuffPost not employ its supposed top-level standards and practices, including “embrac[ing] journalistic values like accuracy, fact checking,” and “rigorous editorial policies and standards… to ensure that we maintain the highest level of journalistic integrity,” before creating this top story, which it spread throughout the world on social media? See the sources for these and many similar quotes here.
- Why did HuffPost then completely remove the story from its front page, instead of putting up a new splash headline, admitting its error, how it happened, and the steps it is taking to never allow anything like it to happen again?
Only HuffPost’s senior management can answer those questions. Here’s how to ask them.
