Huffington Post Libels Palin, Refuses to Change Story

Does this really surprise anyone?  Currently, the liberal psuedo-news site the Huffington Post has a gigantic picture of former VP candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and a 99 font size (and all capital letters) "GOTCHA" on the front of their website:
I would show the original size, but it would be too big for this website.

The picture, which intentionally tries to mock Palin, links to an article by the Huffington Post that states that Palin "misquoted" a story in the Wall Street Journal.  However, if you wade through the article and past the liberal slant, you would realize that Mrs. Palin is telling the truth.

If you read the article, Palin stated that food prices increased over the last year.  They did.  The HuffPo cries foul, saying that the prices didn't rise that much, but obviously their lies cannot hid the fact that Palin was correct.

Later in the story, it reports that Palin wrote this on her Facebook page:
"That's odd, because just last Thursday, November 4, I read an article in Mr. Reddy's own Wall Street Journal titled 'Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices: Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies.'"
The HuffPo jumps on Palin, saying that she misread the article.  The problem is that this is the exact headline from the WSJ article:
Food Sellers Grit Teeth, Raise Prices
Packagers and Supermarkets Pressured to Pass Along Rising Costs, Even as Consumers Pinch Pennies
You know, that's odd... That's exactly what Mrs. Palin said.  It's almost like the Huffington Post is lying because they want to libel Mrs. Palin.  How odd.

And let's not forget what the point of the story in the WSJ was: that food prices have indeed risen and will most likely rise a great deal in the near future for consumers.  Not only that, but it includes this picture:
Chicken up 13%.  Milk up 10%.  Sugar up 9% and eggs up 7%.  Once again, Mrs. Palin is proved right beyond a shadow of a doubt, but the Huffington Post will have none of it.

Don't expect the Huffington Post to come clean or even change their story anytime soon.

  1. The Huffington Post is run by a bunch of phonies

  2. You only read the title and look at the picture, you have no actual understanding of the story.

    You are simpleminded wastes of life who will topple the country with the weight of your stupidity.

    "The food index rose 1.4%, however."

    "The current pressure is nothing like it was in October 2008, when food prices were rising at an annual rate of 6.3% and some hard lessons were learned when producers passed along those costs: Shoppers switched to private-label products."

  3. I think it is getting clear that the Obama administration is fudging the stats just as Clinton did to look better in the 2000 election.
    That's OK, if you preach that perception is reality, meaning that its OK to lie to control people.
