Huffington Post Practices Yellow Journalism

Shame on the Huffington Post, for once more practicing yellow journalism.  Have a look at how they chose their words, when they published a story about Aly Raisman.

Raisman won a gold medal in women’s floor exercise representing the US.  An 18 year old Jewish American girl, that bravely expressed what needed to be stated. 

Here is what she state:

 “Having that floor music wasn’t intentional,” an emotional but poised Raisman told reporters after her performance.

“But the fact it was on the 40th anniversary is special, and winning the gold today means a lot to me.”

Then Raisman stuck the landing.

“If there had been a moment’s silence,” the 18-year-old woman told the world, “I would have supported it and respected it.”

It was 40 years ago at the 1972 Munich Games that members of the Israeli Olympic delegation were taken hostage, tortured and eventually brutally slaughtered by Palestinian terrorists.

Here is a screen capture of how the Huffington Post opened their  piece about this:

Please note how the HP writer is implying that Ms. Raisman declared her solidarity to the palestinian terrorists, no where in the entire piece is there a mention of who the victims are,  but a mere statement that they were Israelis chosen for their nationality.
