The Huffington Post is a leftist website created by gadfly and former Republican Arianna Huffington. The site is an extremist liberal mouthpiece. The Huffington Post calls itself an internet newspaper of blogs, news and video but often is referred to as a hate site where its one-sided news cannot be trusted. They cover politics, media, business and entertainment news. They smear conservatives daily, while whitewashing and defending liberals.

The site also dominates social networking sites like Digg, making them liberal by proxy for promoting biased and insulting treatments of conservative politicians.

Exercising censorship, as liberals are prone to do, the Post removed a March 9 2010 commentary by former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura accusing the Bush administration of involvement in the events of 9/11 shortly after publication. [1]

In 2011, the Huffington Post was purchased by AOL for just over $315 million in a deal that left Huffington in charge of the website.

AOL

Since the announcement of the merger, vocal liberals have expressed their displeasure by boycotting the website. Huffington laughed the threats off and introduced the weekly column by anti-liberal journalist Andrew Breitbart.
