I woke up this morning to read an e-mail from Maureen Gummert’s mailing list, one in which the author was exceedingly glad that The Huffington Post was publishing an editorial by Sander Hicks about the Vatican child sexual abuse scandal.
Sander Hicks has created a story about the Vatican sex scandal and has done a brilliant job at linking it to the Franklin Credit Union scandal. The story posted yesterday 4/6/2010 at The Huffington Post….this is a huge breakthrough.
Huffington Post is exactly the mainstream media exposure we have hoped for. Nick Bryant has worked tirelessly to assure the world finds out about what happened to so many victims.
Please take some time to read Sander’s story and please consider writing a comment. We need to do everything we can to keep this story in the forefront on The Huffington Post.
To vigilant readers of this website, the Franklin Trust sexual abuse scandal is hardly news.… Read the rest
The Huffington Post removed a 9/11 "Truther" post from former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. According to their editor's note, "The Huffington Post's editorial policy, laid out in our blogger guidelines, prohibits the promotion and promulgation of conspiracy theories...." Oh, really? Because today, the very same Huffington Post published this wonderful post from dangerous nutcase Jenny McCarthy about how autism is caused by vaccines and can be cured with experimental treatments that the established medical community doesn't want you to know about. We can only assume that as soon as the editors discover this conspiratorial nonsense, they will promptly remove it. The fun thing about Jenny McCarthy's conspiracy is that if it catches on enough, it will literally lead to the death of children. Trutherism just makes you really annoying!It's not only Huffington Post who gives the former Playboy playmate lip service, ABC News was willing to seek a medical opinion from her. Even if you disagree with Ventura's claims on 9/11 (and I am in that camp), Ventura is not saying he is qualified to dispense an engineering analysis, or even claiming he is 100% right about his conclusions.

Jesse Ventura has worn many hats over his lifetime. In addition to being a body-slamming professional wrestler and one-term governor of Minnesota, he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam and a bodyguard for the Rolling Stones. In his latest career move, he is a conspiracy theory investigator.
His television show, Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura, premiered on TruTV in early December delivering the 17-year-old channel’s largest-ever premiere audience — 1.6 million people — and maintaining it during subsequent episodes. It held onto high Nielsen ratings despite being panned by critics because the masses love it. TruTV’s slogan is “Not Reality. Actuality.” This is a baffling mantra, but it’s the perfect place for a show like Ventura’s.
“We developed it for our audience,” one that is “usually fascinated with inside worlds they don’t normally have access to,” said Darren Campo, senior vice president of programming at the channel.
