Huffington Post/AOL Bury #Weinergate Story

Okay, this will get me in trouble but here goes..

The Huffington Post has finally posted something about this weekend’s evolving #Weinergate Story – but not on the national page, but buried… …in the much less read New York section.

And their judging by comments – readers noticed:

Huffington Post has buried next week’s top story. Amazing

And…

Why is this a LOCAL story and not a headline story on the HP? Thats right, Weiner is the loudmouth liberal with a D next to his name.

And…

It’s kind of shameful that HP is burying this story that broke on Saturday, and I have only heard about it because of comments in other stories. Clearly his account was hacked (Twitter seems notoriousl y easy to hack) but that doesn’t mean it isn’t news.

HuffPost Could Have Run The Story Two Days Ago & Chose Not To:

This is the part that HuffPost won’t be thrilled with, but I mention it because I think it proves some real bias going on: After months of not blogging at Huffington Post because of their treatment of Andrew Breitbart, I decided this story was juicy/big enough that I wanted to get it out to the HuffPost audience. After all, Huffington Post had been great about publishing my John Edwards pieces.

So I submitted an article that I thought was good – my Would Your Spouse Buy It? article with an added introduction paragraph to explain the story…and note the date…

And I even emailed the blog team and HP editor Roy Sekoff…again, note the date:

There’s no question in my mind that if the piece was about Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) or Michelle Bachmann sending out underwear photos, it would have been frontpaged all weekend. But it’s about liberal Democrat Anthony Weiner, and it got the spike.
