Cliff Kincaid of the right-wing group Accuracy In Media is deeply troubled by President Obama’s decision to give an interview with The Huffington Post, which he claims is actually a pornography website.
In a BarbWire column, “Obama Gives Interview To Gay Porn Outlet,” Kincaid alleges that the prominent news organization peddles gay pornography, along with “pro-Arab, pro-Muslim and anti-Israel” views.
President Obama’s interview with The Huffington Post (HuffPost) has been treated as if the on-line publication is somehow respectable and legitimate. The topics of the interview included budget sequestration, the Iran nuclear talks, presidential pardons, overtime pay, athletic scholarships and sleep. But here are some stories from the on-line outlet you may have missed (Be advised these articles may be offensive to some):
• Porn Stars Without Makeup
• This Map Shows Where America Loves ‘Butts’ More Than ‘Boobs’
• These Striking Portraits Of Porn Stars Shine A Different Light On XXX Actors
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth notes that The Huffington Post’s “Gay Voices” section has run a video of movie scenes with full-frontal male nudity.
In addition to publishing and promoting pornography, The Huffington Post is a “progressive” platform for advocates of abortion, homosexual rights and marijuana legalization. It was named after Arianna Huffington’s ex-husband, Michael Huffington, who was born rich and then turned gay. (In this case, apparently, being gay was a choice). She used his money from a divorce settlement to start the on-line “news” service in 2005.
On foreign policy, the publication is pro-Arab, pro-Muslim and anti-Israel. One report documents how it works hand-in-glove with Al Jazeera.
The blog known as Huff-Watch has documented the publication’s “pathological, malicious incitement of hate against the U.S. military, Israel and Jews, the Tea Party and conservative individuals and organizations.”
None of this seems to bother Obama, however, or at least those in the administration who decide who or what publications he talks to.
If you want to study all the tricks of the trade in the matter of a “progressive” media bias that approaches the absurd, The Huffington Post is worth analyzing. One has to wonder if the editors realize how ridiculous their bias makes them look.
