Ryan Grim says The Huffington Post “lives or dies” based on their “journalism”
If that’s the case, they’re dead as a doornail.
This is the Leftist website that for months, ran an “editor’s note” at the bottom of every article about Donald Trump: “Donald regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.”
They don’t claim to be “objective.” No, they’re peddling what they call “advocacy journalism,” pushing a Leftist narrative that tries to undermine conservative causes and ideas.
As a result of this, Trump has denied the Huffington Post press credentials for covering the President-Elect’s events.
The Post retaliates like a small child with headlines like: “It’s Official: Electors Pick Popular Vote Runner-Up.”
HuffPo said they’re going to have great difficulty covering the Trump administration in the future.
“How can Huffington Post complain about not being credentialed for Trump events when they are engaging in liberal activism against him? Are we really supposed to pretend they are a serious journalistic outfit like the Associated Press? Would the Obama administration credential RedState for an Obama press conference?” one veteran D.C. political reporter said.

If The Huffington Post “Lives and Dies” based on their journalism, they’ve been six feet under for a very long time.
