Florida Family Association's monitoring records report that Lending Tree is one of a few remaining companies that has advertised at Huffington Post for several months..
Huffington Post has published numerous articles that promote Islamist propaganda. Huffington Post articles have defended the Muslim Brotherhood, fundraised for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), blamed Christian Islamophobia for worldwide conflict with Muslims, promoted an anti-Semitic blog, encouraged Islamist demagoguery, and promoted other Islamist propaganda. Additionally, the Huffington Post has former Al Jazeera journalists writing articles and Huffington Post Arabic is led by hard line Islamists from Al Jazeera. The Huffington Post published an article written by Ben Piven on January 12, 2017 titled “Why Al Jazeera America Failed, And Why We Need It More Than Ever.” The subtitle stated “America desperately needs something similar to pioneer this new era of uncertainty and misinformation.” Ben Piven “was at Al Jazeera for over 5 years, including several years at AJAM in New York City and also in Doha at AJE during the height of the Arab Spring.”
The Huffington Post Arabic edition is run by two hardline Islamists according to a report published by Breitbart. Anas Fouda, an Egyptian native now living in Muslim Brotherhood-friendly Turkey, is the new editor-in-chief of HuffPost Arabi. He was arrested by UAE authorities in 2013 after being charged with being a leader in the Islamist group, according to a NOW Lebanon, which linked to an article in which Fouda allegedly admitted that he has been a member of the Brotherhood since 1988. Prior to becoming the Huffington Post Arabic editor, Fouda was an executive producer at Al Jazeera Arabic, a network accused of having rabidly pro-Brotherhood biases. The Huffington Post’s Arabic venture was created after the left-wing news network teamed up with Integral Media Strategies, an organization led by Wadah Khanfar, who was previously employed as Al Jazeera Arabic’s managing director. Khanfar, like Fouda, has been arrested by an Arab government (Jordan) on suspicion that he was a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood terror group. Additionally, Zvi Mazel, the former Israeli Ambassador to Egypt, has in the past noted with certainty that “Wadah Khanfar is a Muslim Brother,” and that the former Al Jazeera chief turned the network into a “weapon in the service of” the Muslim Brotherhood.
The following articles are examples of some of the Huffington Post's recent Islamist propaganda
• Huffington Post published an article on June 24, 2017 titled Most Of America’s Terrorists Are White, And Not Muslim. The subheading stated "Right-wing terror is real, and it’s a problem." The title speaks for itself as fake utter nonsense.
• Huffington Post published an article on June 25, 2017 titled Another Violent Ramadan. This article, which appears to focus on quelling people’s criticism of Islam, biasedly profiled a handful of incidents (many of them alleged incidents) that victimized Muslims. The article quoted reports by the Council on American Islamic Relations. HOWEVER, the article failed to report the overwhelming VIOLENCE that the people of Islam committed during Ramadan. During Ramadan 2017 there were 161 Muslim terror attacks that killed 1,483 people and wounded 1,557 others.
• The Huffington Post published an article on April 20, 2017 which targeted a Catholic school teacher for sharing historic facts with students. The Huffington Post has started a project called “Documenting Hate” which put pressure on a Catholic Diocese to terminate well liked teacher Mark Smythe for sharing factual Catholic teaching with students that was critical of Muhammad. In the case of the Huffington Post’s hit piece on Mark Smythe, the person who filed the complaint directly with the Huffington Post was not directly involved in the school. The Huffington Post article states “A concerned mother with a child in Smythe’s class gave copies of the reading assignment to a friend, who then sent the copies to The Huffington Post through the Documenting Hate project.” The Huffington Post writes regarding their “Documenting Hate” project “America does not do a good job of tracking incidents of hate and bias. We need your help to create a database of such incidents, so we all know what’s going on.” This project is certainly being used to push the Islamophobia false narrative.
