HuffPost ignores U.S. Marine jailed in Mexico - but weeps for traitor, terrorists, and Palestinians

On March 31, 2014 U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally crossed into Mexico, due to a confusing series of road signs, on his way to San Diego.  Mexican officials refused his request to turn around a few hundred feet over the border, and instead threw him in jail, where he has remained ever since.  The reason: Tahmooressi, who was essentially living out of his truck, was carrying all of his possessions, including three firearms, which he openly admitted to Mexican officials. 

An Afghanistan war veteran suffering from PTSD, by all accounts Sgt. Tahmooressi served honorably, and was relocating to San Diego to obtain the mental health counseling that had been prescribed to him.  Since his incarceration in Mexico, however, Tahmooressi has reported that his jailers have beaten him, stripped him of his clothes, chained him to a bed, and threatened to rape him.

Here's a video summary of Sgt. Tahmooressi's situation:



So how many stories did the Huffington Post, the world's #1 most-read online "newspaper," publish about Sgt. Tahmooressi and his plight and allegations, in the nearly three months since he was taken captive by Mexico?   

Zero - and you can prove this for yourself.  If you search "Andrew Tahmooressi" at HuffPost, you will find a list of returns - all of which have "huff-wires" in the URL, meaning that these were items that were inserted into HuffPost's news feed, but not published - least of all on its front page, or any prominent position.

Contrast HuffPost completely ignoring Sgt. Tahmooressi to the sympathetic coverage it has given to a convicted U.S. traitor, to Palestinians, and even Al Qaeda

As the following facts demonstrate, were Tahmooressi anything other than (a) an American combat veteran who honorably served, and (b) a gun owner, it would have given his plight front-page coverage.  Consider the following facts:


(1) HuffPost gave front-page splash treatment to Michael Moore's allegations that a Palestinian filmmaker was detained for merely a few hours at LAX:




(2) HuffPost gave front-page splash treatment to convicted traitor PFC Bradley Manning when it became difficult to prove whether or not his treason led to actual deaths of U.S. service members or our allies:



(3) HuffPost gave Manning a front-page editorial to explain why he was changing his name, and had changed genders - and left this editorial posted on the front page for four days:




(4) HuffPost gave five days of top coverage to a "homesick jihadi" - yet ignored the a U.S. military hero who was given the Medal of Honor during the same time period:



(5) HuffPost gave sympathetic front-page coverage to a "news" story that presents "the 'gentle face' of Al Qaeda":



(6) HuffPost gave splash treatment to Palestinians whom it alleged were "left behind by government, the world":




These are not isolated incidents, or "accidents," as HuffPost likes to claim when it is caught in embarrassing situations.  Rather, they are par for the course in the "news" room that is commanded by the woman who reportedly claimed she is "the future of journalism."

HuffPost's recent, sympathetic coverage of Al Jazeera "journalists" who were sentenced in Egypt (and who then made overt threats against the Egyptian government)

Most recently, on June 24, 2014 HuffPost published an editorialized teaser atop its news section, for an original "news" story that presents what it contends is the "heartbreaking" reaction that an Al Jazeera "journalist" had to being sentenced by an Egyptian court:



Note also that by HuffPost's own admission, amidst this "heartbreaking" ordeal, the "reporter" overtly threatened the court, screaming, "They will pay for this! I promise they will pay for this!":



Note further that as documented in a detailed report, HuffPost has a long, intense relationship with Al Jazeera, in which it has relentlessly worked to get the terrorist-celebrating "news" network into millions of U.S. homes.
