More Huffington Post hypocrisy!

Kurtz at the WAPO has the goods on a journalist jerk who created a You Tube clip making it appear that Fox News anchor John Gibson said something he did not about Attorney General Eric Holder. Here are the money quotes:

"A Baltimore television reporter has lost his job after acknowledging that he doctored a video to make it appear that Fox News Radio host John Gibson had made a racial slur.
In the bogus video, which was picked up across the Internet, Gibson seemed to be comparing Attorney General Eric Holder to a monkey with a "bright blue scrotum." There had been chatter on Fox News earlier about such a monkey, which had escaped from a Seattle zoo.
A spokeswoman for WBAL-TV confirmed yesterday that technology reporter John Sanders is no longer employed by the station but she declined to comment on whether he had been dismissed. His profile was promptly removed from the NBC affiliate's Web site. "

But even more outrageous is the liberals at the Huffington Post ran with this story. After so many years lambasted Fox News for it's bias the Huff Post now has egg on it's face. As John Gibson correctly notes:

"My ire in this situation is directed at the Huffington Post," Gibson said. "I really think this would have been very easy to check. A kid made a mistake and did something goofy, fine. But these guys [at the Huffington Post] claim to be and are regarded by many as a legitimate news organization. It spoke to their bias against me that they went ahead with it."
