BREAKING: The media is not pro-gay enough. In fact, according to Michelangelo Signorile, the media is explicitly anti-gay. It’s hard to argue with crazy. 

The editor of Huffington Post’s Gay Voices, Signorile, is calling for the media to be intolerant “of all forms” of “bigotry against LGBT people.” And by bigotry, he means anything less than celebration.

For the first time since Norman Thomas, America finally has a viable self-proclaimed socialist presidential candidate in the form of Senator Bernie Sanders. However, the Huffington Post tells us not to panic. After all, Sanders is not just a socialist.  He’s a “democratic socialist.” That makes it okay.

Something hasn't seemed right about the Memories Pizza story from the get-go. Now I know why.

In a Tuesday report, TV Station ABC 57 cited the Walkerton, Indiana business's Crystal O'Connor as saying that, in the station's words, they "don't agree with gay marriages and wouldn't cater them if asked to." In other words, they've never been asked to. The non-story which ignited a national firestorm is the result of a dangerously irresponsible ambush. The reporter involved admitted as much in a tweet late this morning:

Celebrities, high-profile executives and media outlets gunning for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and the state’s new religious freedom law are a “lynch mob,” Newt Gingrich said today in a HuffPost Live interview.

Everyone from singer Miley Cyrus to Apple CEO Tim Cook has taken a shot at Indiana SB 101, legislation that the “lynch mob” has decided opens a universal door for discrimination against gay people.

Following the passage of Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), the Huffington Post began churning out anti-religious freedom screeds like an assembly line of hyperbole. The most outrageous of which came from the "Reverend" Susan Russell, who called the law a "perversion of religion into a weapon of mass destruction."

It’s remarkable how negatively this religious leader views religious history:

Actress Debi Mazar thinks Italy has “a lot of oppression” since “it’s where the Vatican is,” she said Wednesday in an interview with HuffPost Live.

The Queens-born Entourage regular is the lead of a new TV Land series called Younger, where she plays a single mother who is gay.

“I don’t really think in those terms because I just think people should love who they wanna be in love with,” Mazar told host Marc Lamont Hill in the segment. “So I’m just playing someone, Maggie, who’s a person, who happens just to like chicks instead of guys.”

Mazar blamed Catholic influence when asked to comment on the recent tiff between performer Elton John and designers Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, the team behind the luxury brand Dolce & Gabbana.

Hillary Clinton’s e-mail controversy continues to haunt her as even her supporters admit the former senator did wrong by using a private server during her four years as Secretary of State.

“I think she made a mistake,” Barney Frank told host Alyona Minkovski on a HuffPost Live segment that aired today. “That was not very intelligent of her.”

Frank, who served as a Democratic congressman for Massachusetts for more than 30 years, was the first openly gay members of Congress. He appeared on HuffPost Live to discuss his recently published memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage.

Monday night, a Cincinnati-area same-sex "marriage" activist posted on Facebook and tweeted that he had been abducted and was in the trunk of his car. A short time later, police found 20 year-old Adam Hoover and determined that he had (very clumsily) faked his abduction, and would be charged with the crime of "making false claims." In the meantime, news of Hoover's abduction and then its false nature made it to several national news outlets, including the Washington Times, Huffington Post and Buzzfeed.

In its two reports on the story Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, the Cincinnati Enquirer posted the following introductory note:

In an interview with The Huffington Post published on Monday night, Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald admitted to falsely claiming in a segment on January 30's CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley on January 30 that he had served in U.S. Army Special Forces during his service from mid-1970s to 1980.

McDonald retracted what he had told a homeless veteran in Los Angeles by saying, in part, that “I have no excuse,” “I was not in special forces,” and had “no intent in any way to describe my record any different than it is.”

If you are persecuted in America for living your Christian faith, it's all your fault. At least that's what an expert at the Huffington Post Religion section claims in an odd piece that simultaneously acknowledges and denies the existence of concentrated anti-Christian sentiment in the United States.

The headline was “Christians to Blame for the 'War on Christianity'”. The author was Dale Hansen, a political blogger for the Detroit News.

Don’t worry liberals! Jon Stewart may be going, but a new “fake news” program is stepping in to tell you what to think, courtesy of the far-left Huffington Post. 

Starting March 27, a weekly, hour-long Friday night series will feature a Daily Show-esque mix of satirical news and entertainment. The show will be featured on the live streaming video website, HuffPostLive and on the main homepage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Didn’t you know? Hashtags and publicity stunts are “changing the world” for the better? Thank God the Huffington Post is here to remind liberals of all the good they do – or would do, if empty gestures and moral preening actually accomplished something. Hash tags, silly street theater, bumper-sticker profundity, spewing cooked statistics and hypersensitivity to “micro-aggressions" – they’re all in the modern liberal toolbox. And now, HuffPo writer Nina Bahadur wants to add cartoons to that mix in her piece, “How Women are Changing the World, Shown in Gorgeous Illustrations.” Cartoonish pictures about cartoonish gestures. How post-modern.
