How could a liberal actually be upset with the liberal media for their coverage of the 2012 presidential election? Well, Daniel Froomkin of The Huffington Post (formerly of The Washington Post) is furious. His complaint carried the headline “How the Mainstream Press Bungled the Single Biggest Story of the 2012 Campaign.”
What would that story be? “Namely, the radical right-wing, off-the-rails lurch of the Republican Party, both in terms of its agenda and its relationship to the truth.”
***UPDATE: Huffington Post just posted a retraction of the fake video story on John Gibson.-9:30 am 2/20/09-More updates below the fold.
Here is an example of how liberal lies are spread. In the midst of leftists attacking the New York Post over a cartoon by Sean Delonas, The Huffington Post decided to throw its hat in the ring yesterday and wrote up a scathing attack of Fox News anchor John Gibson. The Huffington post's Alex Leo accused Gibson of comparing “Attorney General Eric Holder to a Monkey” during Gibson’s broadcast (H/T Johnny Dollar's Place). HuffPo then posted a video of the so-called crime. There is one problem, though. The video Leo posted was doctored. At 2:43 and 2:49 of the doctored video the same sentenced is pasted in to make it appear that Gibson is comparing Holder to a monkey. Here is the fake video Huffington Post's Leo used to slander Gibson, and here is the real footage Fox News Channel ran.
Below is Huffington Post writer Alex Leo’s attack referencing the fake video as authentic:
