HuffPo Still Making Up The News
You've heard me gripe about this repeatedly. I cannot understand why the HuffPo insists on changing story headlines to give the reader a false impression about the story. Its misleading and dishonest. I really thought we would see less of these tactics after the George Clooney debacle, yet here we are back at square 1.
Todays headline at the HuffPo:
Brit Hume Sets His Sights On SpongeBob SquarePants
I, like most readers of the HuffPo, thought this was going to be another one of those ridiculous stories about SpongeBob pushing a gay agenda. "Here comes another attack on SpongeBob, and FOX news is going to look stupid", I thought to myself.
The story is about how Brit Humes ratings have soared. Hume has recently surged to the No. 2 spot among all cable news shows, after Bill O'Reilly.
Hume joked, "We've been having a series of meetings here about how we can beat Nickelodeon," he says. "We just hope that they don't put SpongeBob SquarePants up against us."
This time (for a change) the HuffPo readers are reacting angrily. It all comes down to mouse clicks and ADVERTISING REVENUE. The more stories that the HuffPo can get readers to click on, the more they make in advertising revenue because they show the advertisers these numbers. They say, "Look, we do a story about SpongeBob and it gets 1,000 hits! Our readers are thirsting for the real news and we give it to them, so support us with huge advertising dollars". HuffPo readers do NOT want to read a story about Brit Humes soaring ratings, but they will click like rabid goons on the link if they think it is bashing FOX.
Arianna, you are just another corporate whore chasing dollar signs and you dont care how you do it. You are no different than those phony television evangelists, residing in your 7 million dollar mansion and fleecing the sheep.
You are living the American Dream. You have become your own little Halliburton.
