Huffington Post Is Making a Major Mistake

"I was stunned to learn that your political editors have not only decided to relegate all future coverage of Donald Trump's presidential campaign to the the HuffPo entertainment section, they are proudly trumpeting this decision in the form of a news headline at the top of the HuffPo home page. Like him or not, Trump is a legitimate presidential candidate who is not-so-incidentally leading in the latest polls.

It's vital that your staff stays mindful of the fact that the Huffington Post is now the biggest news organization in the world. I'm proud to be associated with it. But to suddenly decide that Trump is just a "sideshow," and not a valid news story is an extreme error in judgement and appears to be every bit as blindly and ridiculously partisan as Rush, O'Reilly, Fox and the rest.

In an age where radio and TV news have abdicated their journalistic responsibility and major newspapers are folding by the score, it's vital that you maintain your credibility. In the final analysis, The Huffington Post may be the last true representative of a free American press. We are counting on you to act accordingly."

Whatever sort of buffoon he might be, he is currently leading the polls. Will they move him from the entertainment page if he wins some primaries?

I think that is pretty funny.

They are correct, it belongs on the entertainment page, along with most politics.

Trump's goal is not, nor has it ever been, the presidency. His only plan is to build his brand and keep the Trump name on the front page. He has been wildly successful.

^ That may be so, but he is, at least as of this writing, a legitimate contender for the Republican nomination. That makes him news worthy. Alas, but news worthy he is, no matter the caliber of his buffoon statements.
