Today The Huffington Post has made an interesting editorial decision and that is they will cover the GOP Presidential campaign of front runner Donald Trump in the websites Entertainment section. It is an odd move for a website that was built on politics.
While most publications have taken Trumps campaign seriously it seems that Huffington Post editors do not seem to see him as a candidate. Early today they opened Friday with this front page headline:
A Note About Our Coverage Of Donald Trump’s ‘Campaign’- the statement from Ryan Grim the Washington bureau chief for The Huffington Post and Danny Shea is the Editorial Director of The Huffington Post penned the following paragraph on their coverage plans.
After watching and listening to Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy for president, we have decided we won’t report on Trump’s campaign as part of The Huffington Post’s political coverage. Instead, we will cover his campaign as part of our Entertainment section. Our reason is simple: Trump’s campaign is a sideshow. We won’t take the bait. If you are interested in what The Donald has to say, you’ll find it next to our stories on the Kardashians and The Bachelorette.
Up until today the Huffington Post followed Trump in their extensive political area. However, starting today the billionaire businessman saw his slot in the publication moved to the Entertainment section.
