Florida Family Association monitoring of companies that advertise at HuffPost has recorded dozens of new companies that have not advertised before.  Additionally, several companies that stopped advertising at HuffPost have recently started advertising again.  HuffPost is clearly accelerating its attempts to make the leftist website profitable after years of losses incurred by former owner Verizon.

Verizon sold HuffPost to BuzzFeed in late 2020 in an all-stock deal.   Verizon also took a minority stake in the company for an undisclosed sum of cash.  That undisclosed sum of cash was most likely paid to cover the losses that BuzzFeed would sustain until it had time to rebuild the leftist news site.  How else could a small company like BuzzFeed survive $20 million a year in losses?

HuffPost published an article on March 9, 2021 that reported in part:  Jonah Peretti (BuzzFeed CEO)  told staffers that 47 U.S. employees, including eight in management, were cut in order to “fast-track the path to profitability” for HuffPost, enabling the company to break even this year and eventually turn a profit. HuffPost’s losses totaled around $20 million in 2020, he said.  “Though BuzzFeed is a profitable company, we don’t have the resources to support another two years of losses,” Peretti said.

So it appears that HuffPost has significantly amped up the number of new companies advertising because the cash BuzzFeed received from Verizon to help it get through two years of operations is running out.

The Florida Family Association office is working hard to contact as many new advertisers as possible.  Since April 2016, Florida Family Association has influenced 1,803 companies out of 1,822 to stop advertising as of June 30, 2022.  “We must keep the pressure on HuffPost advertisers.”  Notes David Caton, President of Florida Family Association. “

HuffPost continues to promote outrageous lies that are likely to inflame hate among its leftist readers towards conservatives.  

On August 14, 2022 HuffPost published an article titled “GOP Bashed For Attacks On IRS Agents After Targeting FBI.”   The article reported in part:  Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley is wildly claiming IRS agents armed with assault-style rifles are preparing to show up at Americans’ doors to audit their taxes.   Compare HuffPost’s lies to the News Week article titled “IRS Deletes Requirement That New Agents Be Willing to Use 'Deadly Force.'”

That same day HuffPost published an article titled:  The Right-Wing Plot To Destroy Public Libraries.  The article reported in part: There’s a long history of book-banning in the U.S. But conservative groups are emboldened like never before, and they’re taking their mission to a new level.

HuffPost published a headline article on August 12, 2022 that likened conservatives’ reaction to the raid on former President Donald Trump’s home to a made up story on aliens and that it is preposterous to argue that the FBI is in the pockets of Democrats.  The article was titled:  GOP THROWS THE KITCHEN SINK! WILD ATTEMPTS TO DOWNPLAY RAID.  The article states in part:  They're blaming an FBI that supposedly loves Democrats and planted evidence ― or maybe it's all about aliens.  

HuffPost supports the Defund the Police movement.

HuffPost’s lies about conservatives and conservative policy are designed to cause doubt, disbelief, angst, hate and division among Americans.  And the companies that advertise with HuffPost are paying for such propaganda.

Office Depot recently started advertising at HuffPost.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to encourage Office Depot officials to stop spending customer money on HuffPost propaganda that inspires disdain toward other Americans and promotes Islamist propaganda.  Office Depot certainly has the right to advertise on whatever shows it chooses.  Likewise, you have the same right to voice concern and not patronize companies that support leftist hate and Islamist propaganda.
