HuffPost weeps for Boston bomber's family, ignores mother's threats against USA

.
First came HuffPost "friending" the Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Then came the self-proclaimed "nonpartisan" newspaper weeping over the fact that all the radical Muslims and leftists who originally supported Tsarnev, proclaiming his innocence, had evaporated.  All of which is really not that surprising, given HuffPost's history of claiming Al Qaeda has a "gentle face," of weeping for a "homesick jihadi," traitors, subversives and all manner of trash, while ignoring or vilifying U.S. soldiers and law enforcement personnel, and most recently, whitewashing a convicted cop-murderer as a "jailed activist."

So it can't be all that surprising that today, HuffPost actually expressed sympathy (in the headline of a "news" story) for the family of the now-convicted-on-all-counts Boston bomber, because the "media" will be following them:

Where Tsarnaev Relatives Go In Boston, Media Will Follow
First, notice the sympathetic picture HuffPost chose to use for this "news" headline; why, the bomber looks like a sophomore at UC-Santa Cruz, harmless as a little kitten!

But this story focuses on sympathizing with his poor family, apparently an Islamist version of the Waltons, whom HuffPost is very concerned won't get any privacy as they go about their lives in Boston.




There are several key facts that HuffPost chose to ignore in this original "news" story it wrote, that rational, patriotic people might find of interest:
(1) Your tax money went to fly the bomber's family to the USA, and protect them.  



Zubeidat Tsarnaev:
"THE U.S. WILL PAY!"


The only reason the bomber's family is in Boston is because our Department of Justice spent hundreds of thousands of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money to fly them here from Chechnya, 5,300 miles away, to be present at his sentencing -- and to provide them with food, lodging, round-the-clock security, etc.

(2) On April 9, the bomber's mother openly threatened America --- a fact that HuffPost completely ignored: 

Here's what Mommy Dearest, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, posted on social media after her darling boy was convicted on all counts:
“DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV IS INNOCENT! THE U.S. WILL PAY! MY SONS ARE INNOCENT, AS INNOCENT AS ALL THOSE WHO ARE BEING KILLED BY YOUR COUNTRY … TODAY THEY ARE KILLING MUSLIMS, AND TOMORROW WILL COME YOUR TURN AND HE WHO DOUBTS THIS IS DEEPLY MISTAKEN!!!!!”

“HOW CAN A MOTHER FEEL WHOSE SON IS IN THE CLAWS OF A PREDATOR PREPARING TO TEAR HIM TO PIECES LIKE MEAT??? THEY WILL PAY FOR MY SONS AND THE SONS OF ISLAM, PERMANENTLY!!! THE TEARS OF THEIR MOTHERS WILL BE FUEL FOR THEM IN HELL, AND ALSO THEIR BLOOD, I AM DOUBTLESS AND ETERNALLY GLAD THAT I KNOW THIS FROM THE WORDS OF THE CREATOR, NOT JUST ANYONE’S WORDS!!!!!!” 
HuffPost completely ignored Mommy Dearest's tirade -- and the fact that hundreds of thousands of dollars of U.S. tax money were used to bring this Islamsit family-from-hell from Chechnya to Boston, and provide them with round-the-clock security.




So what types of "news" stories did HuffPost decide were more important for the global audience it brags about to be aware of, than those facts?  

Here's a sampling, from its front page, between April 9-11, 2015:






How does this all compare to Arianna Huffington's claims that HuffPost is a professional "newspaper," and better than its competitors?

“[T]he news is not right-wing news or left-wing news, it's the news. And that will be the sensibility, that will basically permeate our news coverage.”
- Arianna Huffington
“We are aiming to go beyond just facts, to create a narrative. We think bringing journalism to a new level is exactly what people are looking for.”
- Arianna Huffington
"If you're going to produce great journalism, you have to build a team of people who are working together and driving toward the same goals editorially.”
- Arianna Huffington
“[T]oo many reporters have forgotten that the highest calling of journalists is to ferret out the truth, consequences be damned."
- Arianna Huffington





ACTION ITEMS

If you believe HuffPost should start living up to its repeated claims of nonpartisanship, particularly in its coverage of terrorism, we urge you to do three things:

(1) Make your voice known to HuffPost's senior management here

(2) Consider writing or calling one or more of HuffPost's top advertisers, to let them know your thoughts on what their ad dollars are enabling.
An easy way to approach this is to scan our easy-to-use directory and find one or two corporations that you are a customer of, or have stock in. Your concerns will automatically be given considerably more weight. Also, request a follow-up after they've had a chance to review the evidence; don't let them off the hook, or sweep this under the rug.
(3) Forward the link to this story along to others who support U.S. national security --- particularly journalists!!!
