Huffington Post announces it will not cover Donald Trump as a serious candidate
The Huffington Post announced on Friday it will no longer cover Donald Trump as a serious presidential candidate.
“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," Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and Editorial Director Danny Shea said in a statement.
