Daily Distortions From The HuffPo

Is it really so difficult to report a story without manipulating the headline to make it mean something else completely? Apparently it is for the HuffPo. Day after day, week after week, they rewrite the news so as to get the desired effect from their Digital Brownshirt Brigade.

Today the headline reads

Top Bush Adviser Arrested For Retail Thefts After Abruptly Resigning…

Then click on the link and you are taken to a WA. Post story with the headline:
Former Top Bush Aide Accused of Md. Thefts
This former aide apparently had a shoplifting problem. So? How is this a refection on the Bush administration and how does this merit a super sized picture and main headline at the HuffPo? I love how the HuffPo made sure to dig up at least one photo of this guy with Bush, the insinuation being that he is George's best friend and confidant.

Hurt Bush. That is the template of the left leaning media.

The HuffPo is so intellectually dishonest in its Bush Bashing that its downright nauseating.

On the front page we also have another headline:

Interior Secy. Norton Resigns As Her Dept. Reveals More Connections To Abramoff Scandal...

Now go to the story and you will see that this headline is total BS. A complete fabrication by the HuffPo to smear the Bush Administration with more innuendo and lies. The actual headline from the AP article reads:

Interior Secretary Gale Norton Resigns

Turns out she's been at this job for 5 years and wants a change. She isnt resigning because of Abramhoff as the HuffPo so dishonestly insinuates.
The article states quite clearly that "Norton leaves at a time when a major lobbying scandal involving Indian gaming licenses that required her consent looms over her agency, but there has been no indication of possible wrongdoing on her part."

Her communications director, Tina Kreisher, said Norton had decided she wanted to step down as interior secretary last year, just before hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf coast.
"When Katrina and Rita hit, she felt a responsibility to stay on," Kreisher said.

Arianna, your blog has a serious credibility problem. KNOWINGLY twisting and manipulating news in a dishonest way makes you and your staff and bunch of partisan hacks and LIARS. The staff over at the HuffPo lives in a very big glass house.

I realize that Keith. The point I am making is that they re-write the header to make it sound more sinister.

As if Bush had something to do with the shortcomings of this man. Thats why they ran the guys mugshot next to a pic of him and the pres.

No comment on the other headline which blatantly rewrote the intent of the story?

Thats the point I am making. These are distortions. Manipulation of words and images in a dishonest way.

In case you're still in a demented state, I repeat:
This site really, really sucks, Kevin. It's nice to know that some neo-cons aren't so busy screwing their neighbors and employees out of money that they have time for this kind of contribution. I'm over twenty-five and you can suck my big wet one.
