Huffington Post Blows It With Snarky Clinton Headline


Yesterday, The Huffington Post chose to frame the safe return home of journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee with the headline “Bill Upstages Hillary … Once Again.” In huge 24-point type. Today, Taylor Marsh slammed them for it (itals in original):

Yesterday was a pretty big day. The lives of two amazing journalists were saved, their families spared more emotional agony. It all started, as the New York Times reported it, after being arrested on March 17 near the North Korean border with China while reporting on human trafficking for Current TV. But yesterday, Laura Ling and Euna Lee were rescued by former President Bill Clinton in a feat of diplomatic aplomb that left anyone with a heart teary eyed and choked up, and a nation very grateful.

However, instead of blasting a headline of jubilation, someone inside Huffington Post decided to take the road down Clinton Derangement Highway, choosing the headline you see at the top of this post.

What were you thinking?

Read the rest. She really lets them have it. Justifiably so, in my opinion.

    The headline writer/editor is probably still upset that Ms. Clinton wasn’t the Dem nominee last fall.
