A man wearing a Donald Trump shirt and carrying a weapon stood outside a voting location in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Friday. Authorities in the nation’s richest county are apparently OK with that. Erika Cotti encountered the man when she went to vote at the county’s registrar’s office, she told The Huffington Post. Virginia doesn’t have early voting per se, but voters can cast in-person absentee ballots for a host of reasons, like if they’re going to be out of the county or city on Election Day.
It is a political decision by HuffPo to impose on readers its view of Trump in the most pernicious way — not as part of an explicit and open editorial process but by corrupting HuffPo’s own news process. In what universe, other than the liberal media bias, is a candidate currently leading national polls and all but guaranteed to be included in the first debate not a political issue?

Ryan Grim (Washington bureau chief for The Huffington Post) and Danny Shea (Editorial Director, The Huffington Post), have announced that because Donald Trump in their eyes is a sideshow, any news about Trump will be banished from the “Politics” section of HuffPo News to the Entertainment section, A Note About Our Coverage Of Donald Trump’s ‘Campaign’:

If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you'll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.This was a political decision by the higher-ups at HuffPo to tell the electorate how to view a candidate not as part of the editorial process, but as part of the news process. Because HuffPo News has become a powerful force in news coverage, this will have a ripple effect beyond HuffPo readership. Here's how HuffPo it pitching the story on its homepage:
However, the two students who perpetrated the racist acts later claimed that it was a "joke" in order to "troll" the campus, according to the police report. Notably, the lead perpetrator was a liberal student with a history of Obama activism in high school and college.
However, the AP article left out one critical piece of information, that the hoax was perpetrated by a liberal. We could not have set a better trap if we had tried.
Many of the HuffPo commenters gleefully jumped to the conclusion that the perpetrator of the hoax must be a conservative Rush Limbaugh-listening Republican.

So he made some mistakes. Name an Attorney General who hasn't made mistakes. Okay, more than "some" mistakes: We were right all along, admit it, HuffPo. Come on, man and woman up. A simple, "we're sorry" will do. Actually, no it won't....
And now I rise to the defense of one Christopher James Christie: George W. Bush nicknamed him “Big Boy.” This dust-up is so stupid and pathetic it makes my head hurt. You see, when you call a black man a "boy" it's a racial pejorative. When you merely...
Huffington Post has an article promoted on its front page, published today at 1:36pm, from an "LGBT rights activist" referring to the Family Research Council as an "extreme right-wing group" and a "hate group": ...
