The Huffington Post is crap, I’ve said that more than a few times. Today’s yellow journalism headline: “Former GOP Gov Faces Alarming Accusations” above a picture of Charlie Crist. Now, the average reader of this rag may not actually be informed enough to know that Crist is a closet homo and the “alarming accusations” are men saying he paid them to keep quiet. Yawn. But hey, it gets people to click on it so see what the alarming! shocking! breathtaking! accusations might be, and there’s a tired story about Crist “allegedly” paying these men off.
I’ve made a habit of not linking to this internet throwaway, but now and then it can’t be helped.
Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers.
