Leftist news site The Huffington Post announced on Friday that it will censor Donald Trump from political coverage from the publication, even though recent polls show Trump is currently leading the field of over a dozen 2016 Republican presidential candidates.
Sounding like a Soviet politburo, Huffpo’s Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and Editorial Director Danny Shea released the following statement, a clear attempt to discredit the GOP frontrunner, stating that Trump’s candidacy is a “sideshow” and claimed they would not “take the bait.”
Instead of unbiasedly reporting news about Trump’s campaign alongside other presidential candidates, Huffpo announced that news about Trump would be relegated to the “Entertainment” section “next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.”
Here is the full statement (no this is NOT a parody):
“After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section.
Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. 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.”
